Andres Carvallo named chair of Air-Austin for 2008

On October 2, 2008 over 100 participants in this year’s Accessible Internet Rally joined forces, to continue our mission of Universal Design.

At this year’s kick-off, one could feel all of the dedication, energy and excitement oozing from those in attendance. Many of you have remarked that this was the most enjoyable and inspiring kick off that they have had the honor to be a part of. We feel the same way about you- we are honored and thankful that you choose to be a part of the AIR Family.

AIR-Austin is a unique, award-winning program that has received local and national media coverage. Its purpose is to match teams of web designers/developers with non-profit organizations to build new websites or enhance existing ones to make them more accessible for people with disabilities. Over the past ten years, the Austin community has joined forces to ensure that countless people with disabilities can now access their information and better use the Internet as a tool for gaining knowledge, economic power and exploring job possibilities.
