ADA Speakers, Arcadia Chamber

| Tuesday, March 29th, 2011 | Comments Off on ADA Speakers, Arcadia Chamber

Hello

I am writing to inform you all of an ADA Presentation set forth by Bob Huff through the Arcadia Chamber on April 1, 2011.

We are NOT speaking at this event, the main presenters are going to be from a group called Lawyers Against Lawsuit Abuse.

We are going to be in attendance.

I do have some reservations as to what this event will have, content wise.  Any kind of education is good for Businesses on ADA Compliance (as businesses lack any kind of knowledge in this area) but as attorneys, they can only react to lawsuits and the legal situation.  As much of the serial litigation that happens stems from a lack of physical compliance, getting an ADA compliance inspection is really the only way to become compliant (and thus, avoid lawsuits).  I doubt that attorneys will do CASp or ADA inspections themselves.

At most they will tell their clients to hire an ADA expert.

The worst, they give their audience the impression that they don’t actually have to comply.

Still, I am curious as to what they will say.  I have copied the information below:

Event Name: Join Senator Bob Huff & Arcadia Chamber
Description: For an ADA Compliance Workshop Keynote Speaker: David Peters CEO & General Counsel Lawyers Against Lawsuit Abuse, APC
Event Date: 04-01-11
Event Time: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST

Contact Person: Leia Hernandez
(phone: 909 598-3981)
Details: The purpose of this Workshop is to educate business about state and federal ADA laws and present guidlines to avoid lawsuits for non-compliance.

PARKING:
Attendees can enter Gate 3 or Gate 8 and follow the signs to the South Admissions Battery. After walking through the gate, go up to the escalator in the breezeway and turn left on the mezzanine level until you reach the Baldwin Conference Room.

This event is FREE to the public.  So it is worth going to, if you are in the area.

ADA Seminar, Asphalt Pavement Association

| Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 | Comments Off on ADA Seminar, Asphalt Pavement Association

 

We are excited to be doing a presentation of ADA Issues, SB 1608 and CASp to the Asphalt Pavement Association of California in April 12, 2011 in Pico Rivera, CA.

 

This organization is an association of professionals in the asphalt, concrete and pavement area.  This also naturally includes  parking lots and ADA compliance issues.   We will be speaking about the liability of contractors as an extension of the general ADA liability that property managers, building owners and business owners regularly face.

 

More specially we will be getting into the complex interplay of the different Federal Accessibility standards and the California Building Code that causes issues for many architects and contractors.  Just yesterday I was on the phone with a businesses owner who did understand his ADA liability and was venting that his architect and contractor did not:  “Just how far out of compliance can you be?” the business owner quoted them.  They wanted to go his site, “open a book” and check the access standards from a single guide.

I don’t know if they were thinking the California Code of Reference or CARM (California Accessible Reference Manual) but either way I doubt they would take into account the seating since it’s “furniture” and not part of the building or the new ADA 2010 laws that won’t be in a book.  It can be quite hard to keep up to do date with a print copy of something.  If anything they would need at least 4 “books” to cross reference the materials property.

This of course doesn’t even take into account the many ongoing debates of the issues.

 

After seeing our presentation I am sure many of these contractors won’t be relying on books like CARM or CALDAG anymore.  Those resource materials are one individual’s opinion, not at all official — AND they don’t take into account the complexities of law that have arisen since 2010.  If you keep abreast of the news, or just read this blog (where we keep abreast for you), you’ll see that with CASp and SB 1608 just how specialized this area of law has become.

After this, they will know what to look out for, who to contact and what to do about ADA compliance.  Reading from CALDAG or CARM might have been okay in 2004, when it was just the 2001 CBC and the 1990 ADA without CASp… but those days are over.  Thank goodness.

Education is the key.

 

While this presentation is for professionals in the industry (and not really open to the public) if you are interested in having us speak to our organization with a tailored presentation, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 866 982 3212 or at help@accesssolutionllc.com.

If you have a specific question or concern about access feel free to also contact me.  I can’t do an ADA assessment over the phone, but the general knowledge of ADA compliance is something we offer for free.  I can at least point the way for you so that your needs will be taken care of.

Chatsworth Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce has Speakers on the ADA

| Wednesday, March 9th, 2011 | Comments Off on Chatsworth Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce has Speakers on the ADA

We will be presenting at the General Luncheon Membership for the

Chatsworth/Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce

The Chatsworth Hotel formely known as the Radisson Hotel Chatsworth

9777 Topanga Canyon Blvd, Chatsworth, CA

Guests are $30.00 and members are $25.00.

The event description is as below:

The ADA is a complex facet of law stemming from a mixture of Federal and State components.  These laws are well intentioned and of legitimate concern for the public and for businesses.  Most businesses do not know how to comply or where to start complying, so they are easy targets for a few serial litigants.  The minimum settlement in California is $4,000 plus attorneys fees for both sides.  Many serial litigants use this complexity to sue businesses for a living.  Learn how to defend yourself and what issues are at stake for compliance.

If you would like us to speak at an event to educate your members about the compliance with the ADA, please send us an email at help@accesssolutionllc.com or call us at 866 982-3212 x2
