The Guild of Accessible Web Designers is a world wide organisation of web designers and developers committed to helping each other, and promoting the message that accessible web design is ‘good for business’.
If web accessibility is important to you (and it should be), and you’re interested in joining the GAWDS, send in your membership application. Members need to meet certain criteria, and applications are checked to ensure that all members are committed to accessible web design. Seems reasonable to me.
A competition to redesign the GAWDS website will be announced shortly. Good skills in accessible design will obviously be a must for anyone looking to participate.
