I just wanted to remind you about WebAIM's two day web accessibility
training workshop coming on October 24-25, 2007. More details at

This intensive, hands-on training will cover everything from basic web
accessibility principles to advanced accessibility techniques. No
prior web accessibility knowledge is required, but an understanding of
web design and development is recommended. The training will be held
in beautiful Logan, Utah in a full-featured computer lab.

Please pass this information along to anyone who might be interested
in, or benefit from, the training.

If you're interested in learning more about accessibility, the
following conferences are available in the near future and WebAIM will
be presenting at each of them:
