Hi all- here is a great message from Carla (the ACB convention coordinator) about the upcoming conference in Reno.
This is wonderful news and the Nevada Council of the Blind is grateful Blaine Waters took the steps needed to make this happen! Here is a great example
of everyone working together, in the affiliates and ACB to make dreams possible. And that is what we do, isn't it? Be it through creating and influencing
national Legislation or helping someone who is lost, our actions build together to accomplish our goals as each of us do our part.

Good news, all!
Thanks to the hard work of Lane Waters in the Minneapolis office, and the
foresight of the Nevada Council of the Blind, we have achieved the
We learned late yesterday afternoon that the ACB conference and convention
will in fact be able to take advantage of a sales tax exemption in Reno.
Keep in mind that, as usual, this applies to group activities and events,
not individual purchases and expenditures.
As most of you know, I had just given up on this happening. Do I ever love
to be wrong when it means that, as a convention, we will save at least
$10,000 in taxes!
I will be issuing new menu files reflecting the pricing without taxes. This
ruling will affect virtually everything we do, helping us to keep costs down
for everyone. It certainly will help all groups lower their ticket prices
for participants, which in turn will encourage more people to attend events.
Thanks to Lane and Rick Kuhlmey and NCB for the role they all played in
making the impossible possible.
