Associations and the ADA

Some recent court decisions regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) could affect credentialing examinations. The cases, which dealt with legally blind law school students requesting special accommodations for taking the bar exam, should be of interest to any association or certification body.

I recently penned an article for Associations Now, a publication of the American Society of Association Executives. The article can be found here and shares a brief history of the court cases, as well as the legal implications for credentialing exams.

Thank you, colleagues!
