Thanks so much, Howard! I will incorporate this into the Consortium history. If any of the rest of the committee members have more to add, please send it my way.

Hi Rose,

Sorry for this very late reply. It looks like ATHES began around the end of 1999. That's the earliest dates I've found on files related to the group. I'm ccing the rest of the group to see if anyone has another recollection but it looks like we first met around October of 1999.

I also pasted our original mission statement below:

The ATHES seeks to network and collaborate with other AT professionals in higher education in Colorado and Wyoming. This networking/collaborative relationship will facilitate best practices for providing assistive technologies and the leadership and collective voice necessary to assist our respective schools with providing equal access to technology and educational resources and materials in inclusive settings.

Let me know if you need any additional info.

I'm looking for info on when ATHES, the subcommittee of the Consortium, got started. Do you have that information or do you know someone who could give me some details about it? I want to include it in our history. Thanks.
