Convention Sneak Peek: Passport to Knowledge

ACB’s committee on international relations is back, and has packed lots of surprises into this year’s conference and convention program! We will be co-sponsoring programming with a record number of affiliates and other committees, including ACB Students, the rehabilitation issues task force, and the Braille Revival League.
We will begin on Monday with ACB Students. We will be participating in a panel discussion focused on exchange programs — the enriching experiences that are gained when participating in a study-abroad program.
On Tuesday, we will be participating in the Braille Revival League breakfast.  Please come join us as we learn how braille is incorporated into the lives of people who are blind or have low vision around the world.
On Tuesday, we will also be hosting Voices from Around the World – as a luncheon.  Please join us as we give our international guests an ACB welcome. During our luncheon, Melanie Brunson will be highlighting WIPO.  After lunch, we are co-sponsoring a panel entitled Voices from Around the World with the rehabilitation issues task force.  Come and learn what vocational rehabilitation is like in other countries.  Is it better or worse than what we have in the U.S.? What can be learned from the exchange of ideas?
There’s something for everyone in our convention offerings, so come and join us! The international relations committee looks forward to seeing you all in Dallas.
