I find it interesting to see which groups would accept our giving seminars to educate their members.
I have been in contact with the West San Gabriel Association of Realtors.
Of course Realtors would be interested in this topic as it affects real estate directly. People buying, selling, managing or leasing property would naturally have concerns about the ADA compliance status of a site.
So I have been reaching out to Realtor groups, to educate them on accessibility requirements as it affects their clients, and other places of public accommodation.
Real Estate Agents have the responsibility of full disclosure to their clients. There is so much information they need to know, it’s nearly unreasonable to expect them to know in detail about ADA compliance. As professionals, they SHOULD know enough when to hire certified inspectors, though.
The point of the presentation is to educate them up to this level, and let them know that we are out there to help them.
If you are a Realtor and are interested in learning more, feel free to drop on by.

I will have a 15 minute segment on Wednesday, February 16th, 2010 starting at 1:30PM as part of the Commercial Committee’s education for Realtors. This particular segment is about Hotels and Motels, so I will be focusing in on what Realtors of Hotels and Motels need to look out for specific to ADA compliance for Hotels and Motels.
On Thursday, February 17th, 2010, I will be giving a 5 minute talk about the ADA compliance industry, an in depth look at one particular topic — the additional Warning Sign required under the California Vehicle Code and the California Building Code — and the reasoning behind how it affects a business’s liability.
