Digital Accessibility


What is Digital Accessibility?

Wednesday March 6, 2024 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm ET

Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division for a webinar discussing digital accessibility.

Do you know why Digital Accessibility is important?  If Microsoft Office products like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook along with Adobe Acrobat PDF documents cannot be read and understood by everyone, then many people would miss out on essential, potentially lifesaving information. To improve your ability to create accessible materials, the FEMA Digital Accessibility (508) Program will show you how you can create accessible documents. This webinar will showcase the built-in accessibility tools to assist document owners in creating accessible documents before posting online or distributing to others. Digital Accessibility is everyone’s responsibility!

Who should attend? Whole community partners, Individuals and families, Volunteer and faith-based organizations, Local, State, Federal government, Private Sector.

Seventh Annual Watershed Conference — February 23, 2024 (In a Hybrid Format)

The Watershed Conference is an annual educational and networking event on topics related to watershed health in New Jersey. In February 2023, we welcomed hundreds of attendees for a conference about stormwater and New Jersey’s new MS4 requirements. Our audience included state, municipal, and county officials and staff, nonprofit organizations, environmental professionals, and the general public.

The Watershed Conference will offer sessions that will increase knowledge and skills, encourage discussions between stakeholders, and foster collaboration on specific issues and potential solutions.

Save the date — February 23, 2024 — for our 7th Annual Watershed Conference. Our overarching theme this year is regional planning, a collaborative strategy to address the impacts of climate change and to restore clean and healthy habitats.

Topics will include a wide range of important policy, science, and education approaches to regional issues as well as case studies from around the country. Some of the confirmed organizations and speakers will be:

  • Center for Watershed Protection
  • Stroud
  • Princeton Hydro
  • Rutgers University
  • NJ Department of Environmental Protection
  • EPA Region 2

To address complex issues, we must work together to manage watersheds in a way best suited to their natural geography, beyond political boundaries.

We will be offering sponsorship opportunities. If you are interested in getting more information about sponsoring the conference when it becomes available, please reach out to the conference organizer, Pri Oliveira at poliveira@thewatershed.org with any questions.
