Standards compliance

We fully support the use of web accessibility standards and implementation of practices to achieve a state of compliance. We initiated compliance efforts in the fourth quarter of 2016 and we are committed to continuing with these efforts.   
Our first goal is to meet all priority 1 requirements of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).  Meeting this standard is commonly known as Level A compliance.
Efforts will continue as we work toward meeting priority 2 requirements of the WCAG 2.0. Meeting this standard is commonly known as Level AA compliance.
When commissioning new websites and maintaining the accessibility of existing sites, we intend to follow best practice guidelines and meet Level AA compliance as well as U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.
