The DKM Committee is happy to report that members who attended the virtual ACB conference and convention this year and had not previously attended an in-person convention will be given the privilege to apply to become a recipient of the 2021 DKM First-Timers Award.
During the Aug. 27 board of directors meeting, it was determined that the DKM First-Timers Program guidelines should be revised to reflect the following DKM committee recommendation:
Guideline 3 - Qualifying applicants shall meet each of the following: age 18 or older; blind or visually impaired; member in good standing of ACB and never attended a previous in-person ACB national conference and convention.
We encourage all eligible members to be prepared to apply when the 2021 application and selection process is published in the January issue of the Forum.
