NACCU is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
Web Accessibility Goals
NACCU’s website is hosted by Novi AMS, an Association Management Software (AMS.) Therefore, NACCU does not have full access to our website’s source code and design choices, giving us limited ability to meet WCAG standards. We are working with Novi AMS to meet WCAG standards.
NACCU takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of the NACCU website:
- Communicate any feedback regarding accessibility barriers to our AMS provider to be addressed.

Novi is also committed to quarterly audits of the product and standards in commitment to upkeep compliance.
