Members of the public will have opportunities to address the committee on issues of interest to them and the committee during public comment periods scheduled during each conference call.

Participants may call into the teleconferences from any location of their choosing. However, all participants must pre-register for each call.

Any persons intending to participate must notify Timothy Creagan at creagan@access-board.gov by August 15 of their intent to attend the August 21 teleconference and by August 22 of their intent to attend the August 28 teleconference. The Access Board has very limited space at its office which will be available during the conference calls. Anyone wishing to participate on the call at the Access Board must contact Timothy Creagan by these dates to pre-register. Sign language interpreters, an assistive listening system, and real-time captioning will be provided at the Access Board's offices during the teleconferences. For the comfort of other participants, persons attending the teleconferences at the Access Board's offices are requested to refrain from using perfume, cologne, and other fragrances.
