Next business roundtable June 21 focuses on ADA compliance

Local entrepreneurs are invited to attend the next Quincy Business Roundtable on Wednesday, June 21, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. There has been a wonderful turnout and enthusiasm for these monthly workshops for the business community to learn, share, and grow together. The topic will be “ADA Compliance for Small Businesses” featuring guest speaker Khushpreet Mehton, Esq. of Vaughan & Associates Law Office, APC. The Roundtable is sponsored by the Quincy Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Sierra Small Business Development Center.

The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 and requires all businesses to provide people with disabilities an equal opportunity to access the goods or services that they offer. The ADA contains specific requirements for businesses that are open to the public. All Plumas County businesses can learn from this special opportunity about a very important topic.

Guest speaker Mehton is a graudate of UC Davis and California Western School of Law in San Diego. He has appeared as lead counsel in several hundred accessibility cases throughout California. Mehton began his practice prosecuting cases for disabled plaintiffs and has spent the past five years focusing on defending physical, policy, and website accessibility claims for small business and property owners. He is admitted to every State and Federal Court in California as well as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mehton has represented clients in depositions, mediations, settlement conferences, and hearings throughout the State of California. He has successfully tried cases in the Central and Southern Districts of California, respectively. He is available to consult with small business about ADA Compliance:


Clint Koble of Sierra Small Business Development Center will also provide a brief summary of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act offered through Plumas County and now available to microbusinesses. This will be the last workshop before a summer break. Workshops will resume in the fall.

In May, the workshop topic was “Successful Customer Service” presented by Richard Aiple, General Manager of Nakoma Resort. He shared many wonderful tips garnered from years of experience providing excellent service to his guests in the tourism industry and real world examples from other successful business strategies. The attendees were encouraged to consider their service philosophy, whether “the customer is always right” and learn from examples of bad customer service. A general takeaway point was to personalize customer service and make memories that will stand out to your patrons and encourage repeat business.
