CCAC Social

CCAC Social

We at the CCAC have loved getting together at our virtual events these past few years, and now we are super excited to share our passion for accessibility in person again (socially distanced of course)!  

We welcome you to join our social event at the expanded Steppenwolf campus, in their new full-service Tap House Bar with attached outdoor patio. We’ll be gathering casually (with or without a cocktail in hand) to chat accessibility-related topics with members of the Chicagoland accessibility community. 

Exchange tips, share victories, commiserate, plan world domination… all with a focus on the small changes we are making at our organizations to incrementally make a big difference!
