How do you make sure your plan is complete? On Wednesday, July 22nd at 10a.m. Kristi Avalos from Accessology will cover what you need to know to ensure your agency is on the right track.

Join as Wednesday, July 22nd at 2p.m. as Kristi Avalos discusses the value of bringing your business into compliance with the ADA.
