Technical advisory committee ADA accommodation requests 

Members of a technical advisory committee who require special accommodations may email requests to Sharley Hughes. Requests should describe the need and requested accommodation. DMS will review the request and determine if the accommodations requested are reasonable. In the event a requested accommodation is deemed not reasonable, DMS will work with the member to identify a reasonable and effective accommodation. Accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis to address individual member needs.
