More than 200 attendees participated in last week’s ADA website compliance webinar hosted by the Association in partnership with Kaufman & Canoles, P.C. John Bredehoft from Kaufman & Canoles, P.C. and Ken Otsuka from CUNA Mutual Group provided legal guidance and risk analysis. The webinar was moderated by E. Andy Keeney, Esq., Kaufman & Canoles and John Bratsakis, CEO, MD|DC Credit Union Association.
If your credit union has received a letter threatening legal action related to ADA compliance of your credit union’s website, you are encouraged to notify your insurance provider to file a claim. You should also contact your credit union’s legal counsel.

The webinar was recorded and the following links have been provided by Kaufman & Canoles, P.C. for guidance:
