Hi there,

Last month, I posted information about a new, monthly gathering of
people interested in digital accessibility that launched in New York
City, the New York City Accessibility and Inclusive Design Meetup
Group. As there are three new Meetup Groups launching this month, I
thought I would draw attention to these, and to other gatherings that
exist in the USA, Canada, and Australia. All of these are excellent
opportunities to build community and network locally with those who
either work in digital accessibility or want to learn more.

Denver/Boulder - Front Range Accessibility and Inclusive Design
(Kick-Off is February 18) www.meetup.com/a11yfr
Charlotte Accessibility and Inclusive Design Meetup (Kick-Off is
February 24) www.meetup.com/Accessibility-and-Inclusive-Design-Meetup
San Francisco Bay Area - Bay Area Accessibility and Inclusive Design
Meetup (Kick-Off #1 in the Silicon Valley is February 24, Kick-Off #2
in San Francisco is March 26) www.meetup.com/a11ybay

Sarasota - Wandering Parrot Accessibility (Kick-Off TBD)

The following locations have ongoing gatherings.

gatherings will inspire you to consider setting one up.
