Members of the public have an opportunity to voice their concerns about programs and regulations that impact persons with disabilities to Commonwealth senior staff and agency heads in an open and welcoming environment. This will also be a chance to listen to the input of other members of the community and to network.

As part of a series of regulatory review public listening sessions held by the Executive Office for Administration and Finance, two sessions on Disabilities were held in November and one more will be held in December to gather public feedback.

two stacked binders, one labeled Regulations and the other, Guidelines

These listening sessions seek public input regarding regulations impacting persons with disabilities. This includes both regulations for agencies that assist persons with disabilities, as well as regulations impacting persons with disabilities (e.g. building codes).

The remaining session will be held:

Monday December 7, 2015, 3PM-5PM

North Shore Community College: Room 105

Danvers Campus Health Professions and Student Services Building

1 Ferncroft Road

Danvers, MA 01923

Those who are unable to attend the session are invited to submit their input on Twitter using the hashtag #regreview and tweeting @MassANF.

For reasonable accommodations contact Brian McKeon at:617.727.2040 or Brian.McKeon@massmail.state.ma.us.

We hope to see you there!
