I’ll let this speak for itself. I am proud to serve as board position number 3 for the next two years. We got a lot done at this final meeting including the handing over of the gavel to our new president. Congrads.
We have a grate time hearing from our state governor, discussing challenges and how to overcome them and more at this years nevada federation of the blind convention. We also hear from the scholarship winners and hear from our nevada association of blind students board.
We could not have pulled off this year’s convention had it not ben for the wonderful team that worked together. You know who you are. Thanks. Also thanks to the grand sierra resorts for helping me with running sound. You truly rock.
We do a final reading of the resolutions to be passed the next day. That’s actually about it for the afternoon session of our lovely nvnfb16 convention.
We discuss services for the blind, high school and intake forms in this part of the afternoon session. We also attempt to, and fail to sing the pack plan song. Anyone know it? Lol!
Any feedback is more than welcome. Not on our singing though. Hehahahaa.
The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
We discuss more blindness related issues, paralympics, and more. Come join us for a lot of fun and education.
We start the session with a beautiful rendering of the national anthem. We then hear from our national president of the National Federation of the Blind. We then hear what’s goign on locally, and more. Come join us.
As well as enjoying some pretty good food, we hear from our summer internships, see our scholarship winners and hear from our state rep. This is a partial archive as the auithor had to catch a ride home.
I hope you enjoyed listening, as well as I enjoyed archiving and beeing there. Any feedback on anything cango in the comments frame.
It’s the 2015 elections you get to hear as well as a panel on employment and why the 70 percent of the blind might work at getting work. We talk about advocacy and more. Join me for this final few hours of the afternoon session of the 2015 Nevada federation of the blind state convention. The final part of the archives will include a partial archive of the banquet as the archiver had to leave early to catch a ride home.
Any feedback is more then welcome.
We discuss more about students involvement with the local nevada colleges here and how to obtain your class accommodations here in the state of nevada. We also here from the ben program and what that is. Any feedback on what you here is more then welcome. Let’s have a lively , but professional, discussion on what’s going on in regard to the blind. Any feedback is more then welcome in the disqus frame.
A note to the listener. You might here what sounds like a bump in audio. This is because the battery in the archiver’s recorder died and they had to replace quickly. We did it as quickly as possible, but when technology decides it wants to die it picks the most inopportune moment. We apologize for any inconvenience.
IN this part 2, we talk more about braille and how importent it is especially for studcents and children. We also hear from the Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation.
