NIC camp starts statewide conversations focused on removing barriers to information

North Idaho College was in the business of making influencers during the second annual Accessibility Camp Coeur d’Alene Aug. 3 and 4 at NIC’s main campus in Coeur d’Alene. Keynote speaker Dan Prado encouraged the more than 60 attendees to surround themselves with communities with similar mindsets while becoming leaders in accessibility. “You’re either being influenced, or you are influencing people,” Prado said. “Great leaders gain and influence followers – nothing more, nothing less. All you need to be successful is to have more reasons to succeed than there are obstacles to success.”
