1. Considering the Case for Creating an International Society of Accessibility Professionals - Knowbility
2. “Taking Accessibility Mainstream: Making the Case for an International Society of Accessibility Professionals” – ATiA
3. WCAG Standards (as possible basis for certification): Information technology — W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 andWCAG 2.0 is now also ISO/IEC 40500!
