I think we are talking about two different groups.

I have in my notes that the first official meeting was at CSUN in March of
2002. Laurie Vasquez was the first secretary, so she might have more
information for you:

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.
