Stay tuned for a full report in our upcoming newsletter on the WCD in Washington DC from November 15-17; but our highlights were:

Discussing improvements on accessibility with the airline representatives from Continental, Delta, and American.

Watching championship matches of wheelchair soccer!

Look for two WCD Expos next year in 2008; Philadelphia in June and Jacksonville in November! Access Anything plans on attending both of these events, and is currently in the process of helping WCD organize adventure travel and recreation additions to this expo!
