After many delays and much swearing over internet outages, I finally have my report completely posted. You can find my account of AnimeIowa as the head and lone staffer of the Accessibility Department here: Part 1 and Part 2

Now, an importnat question: Would anyone be interested in regular reports/updates on the running of AI's accessibility department? I feel like it could be a useful resource to anyone attempting to start their own such departments, or who want to help others do so/generate interest in getting one started. I also think it might help me run the department better, if I need to keep outlining my actions, and especially if I can get feedback on them. Any thoughts?

I am on a committee of a conventions and we are talking policy. We are talking about medical documentation requirements for accommodations, and I am having a hard time finding the right words to tell them why this is a /terrible/ idea, and as a newb of sorts, I'd love to have some authority to stand on. Is there a good blog post or website out there already outlining the reasons why that is a bad requirement, and why?

Thank you.

(I promise, my next post will have content)

I created a new page at the Geek Feminism Wiki, as a place to list all of the conventions and conferences that have accessibility policies listed. People making policies can use this as a reference, and for those of us with disabilities, it could be useful to have all this info in one place when choosing conventions to attend.

Feel free to contribute to the Wiki directly, or if you have suggestions, comment here! I don't go to very many cons so I would like suggestions of where to look.

(Inspired by the list of Conference Anti-harassment policies.)
