On Thursday, May 15th SSB will celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) – a community-driven effort with a goal of raising awareness and discussion on the topic of digital accessibility – with activities in San Francisco and Washington DC.

Our West Coast team will be hosting a happy hour event at John Collins Bar in San Francisco from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.  This will be a great opportunity to meet up with industry colleagues to discuss digital accessibility trends and network in a fun atmosphere.  For more information or to RSVP, please contact Jill Micheli at (415) 814-0525 or jill.micheli@ssbbartgroup.com or
