CCAC INVITES YOU! CCAC NEEDS YOU :-). PLEASE RETURN THE SHORT SURVEY BELOW!
CCAC advocacy projects raise awareness, educate, and advocate for the CCAC Mission — “Inclusion of Quality Captioning Universally.” Current major CCAC advocacy projects are the following:
CCAC Sponsorship of free CART; Captions Capture the Votes (elections with quality captioning); CCAC film “Don’t Leave Me Out!“; CCAC Letters of Support for selected captioning issues; CCAC comments to DOJ and FCC concerning captioning matters; New articles (respond to requests and new topics on captioning advocacy); CaptionMatch educates others and assists anyone and any organization to find the captioning provider they need and deserve; plus many smaller individual advocacy actions summarized on the CCAC webpages.
CALLING FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR CCAC COMMITTEES: CCAC has one committee currently with five people for the CCAC Free CART Sponsorship Program. We review applications and award the grant (or not). There is room for two more people to help publicize this more widely.

Membership and Outreach – invite new members; plan CCAC online meetings; take CCAC materials to other conferences.
Communications – monitor the forum; talk to organizational friends and other groups;contribute to the CCAC blog and CCAC Facebook and Twitter.
