AEM State Contacts and NIMAC State Coordinators
If you’re an AEM State Contact and/or a NIMAC State Coordinator, you play a critical role in ensuring that accessible educational materials are provided in a timely manner to the students in your state who need them. Whether you’re new or have a history in this position, please join the NIMAC and the AEM Center as we discuss the importance of these roles, responsibilities, and the technical assistance and resources available to you. We’ll reserve plenty of time for your questions. This is the first of two joint webinars to support the work of AEM State Contacts and NIMAC State Coordinators. Early in 2018, the NIMAC and the AEM Center will co-present on the provision of NIMAS files and related topics.
