Post your event online
Access Press would like to move more of its event listings online, and that is possible with our redesigned website. There is a word limit and we’d ask that those posting information include event costs as well as accommodations. Are ASL and AD offered? Is there companion seating? A quiet room? Fidgets?
Accommodations are much more than a ramp for many of us. That kind of information can help someone decide where or not to attend an event.
To post an event, go to www.accesspress.org, click the resources tab at top right, and go to the post an event line.
Consider that a small web or print ad can also generate interest in an upcoming event. For questions about ads, email [email protected]
Access Press reserved the right to reject events if they do not meet our guidelines. Call the editor at 651-644-2133 ext. one or email [email protected] with events questions.
