OR-CAP Seeks Board Member

The Oregon Communication Access Project (OR-CAP) invites you to join the organization’s board of directors. The OR-CAP board is composed of activist members who are committed to achieving ADA compliance for those who have a handicapping hearing loss, largely through the institution of captioning systems. Our work benefits the Hard of Hearing and Deaf communities but also many people without a hearing loss benefit as well, particularly in noisy environments like sports stadiums and auditoriums.

The Board is working, or has worked, with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, the Rose Garden, Portland Center for the Performing Arts and the Hult Center. We were instrumental in getting the major movie chains to institute captioning as they convert to digital projection.

We invite application for the Board. Applicants need not have a hearing loss, although at least two-fifths of the Board must have a hearing loss that affects their ability to fully enjoy or participate in public life. An application can be obtained at the email address below and should be returned by email to the same address or by postal mail to OR-CAP, PO Box 22501, Eugene, OR 97402.
