Public Policy Luncheon Discusses 21st Century Technology Access

June 21, 2012 – In May, the Center for Advanced Communications Policy in association with the Federal Communications Bar Association, sponsored a luncheon, as part of the Public Policy Luncheon Series, discussing The Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA).  The luncheon series is an opportunity for “local, state and federal government leaders, industry representatives and a diverse set of stakeholders to address the public policy issues facing the telecommunications industry, particularly pertaining to accessibility for persons with disabilities.”  Luncheon panelists included Karen Peltz Strauss of the FCC, Julie Kearney from the Consumer Electronics Association, and Matthew Gerst from CTIA – The Wireless Association.  Panelists took this time to discuss how the CVAA is contributing to “accessibility in communications media for persons with disabilities” and current solutions for industry CVAA compliance.
