News and Events

Our 2017 Convention is over. Please watch for news about our 2018 National Convention which will be at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel. in Orlando. Our 2017Convention was kicked off by our Veterans Reception and Annual Business meeting. We received an update by John Pare' from our NFB legislative team on the progress of our Space A bill in congress. We held our bi-annual elections and the only change was Cheryl Echeverria to our 11 member board of directors. The Honor Our Veterans Celebration at the opening session was a great success with Roy Stinson leading our own Veterans Color Guard made up of Blind Veterans.  We look forward to our next face to face annual meeting in 2018.
