ADA Compliance

The Marshall Area Chamber is hosting an informative session on complying with the ADA requirements and avoiding lawsuits.

Learn about the laws governing your building and your employees.

David Fenley with the Minnesota State Council of Disability (MSCOD) will be presenting on the subject. 

Two times frames available to register for.  One at 8:00 am and one at 12:00 pm

Outline of Presentation:
There has been a recent surge in lawsuits around the state targeting businesses for not removing physical access barriers as determined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In response to this surge, the Minnesota State Council on Disability (MSCOD) has dedicated staff and resources to aid business owners in their efforts to meet ADA obligations. Part of these efforts involves meeting with local businesses to raise awareness about what must be done to avoid lawsuits. By attending this presentation you will gain the tools and knowledge you need to meet all of your obligations under the ADA. MSOCD will present the ADA basics, the most common fixes and technical guidelines, and all the resources you will need to avoid lawsuits. 
David Fenley
ADA/Access Coordinator
David has been with the Minnesota State Council on Disability since 2014 and recently transitioned from legislative work to ADA education and outreach around Minnesota. David, a certified access specialist, informs entities across the state about the ADA obligations and Minnesota's Accessibility Code.

Water Quality Town Hall Meeting

Minnesotans encouraged to participate and continue important conversations around improving the state's water quality 25 percent by 2025 
ST. PAUL, MN - Governor Mark Dayton today announced the dates and locations of a series of Water Quality Town Hall meetings beginning in late July. The ten town halls will offer Minnesotans an opportunity to discuss the water quality challenges facing their communities and our state, learn from experts, and engage with policymakers. The town hall meetings build on the momentum from Governor Dayton's "25 by 25" Water Quality goal proposal, announced  earlier this year.
"All Minnesotans have a stake in water that's safe for drinking, swimming, and fishing," said Governor Dayton. "These town hall meetings will further the important conversations already happening across Minnesota around water quality. Together we can develop strategies and solutions that work for all of our communities."
The town hall meetings will be attended by key members of Governor Dayton's Cabinet who want to hear from Minnesotans about ways to improve the state's water quality at the local level.
Attend a Water Quality Town Hall This Summer or Fall
Ten town hall meetings have been scheduled in communities across Minnesota. These town hall meetings are free to attend and open to the public. Each town hall meeting will run from 6:30-8:30 p.m. with registration beginning at 6:00 p.m. No advance registration is necessary. A complete list of dates and locations is available online:
