Once again the DKM Committee seeks your assistance in support of the First-Timers' Program in two areas. We need you to nominate a dynamic blind individual who has not attended an ACB convention. Two people will be selected, one representing each side of the Mississippi River.

Financial support will be secured with donations and/or a ticket drawing with $300, $150, and $75 as 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes, respectively.

Instructions on the application process are below. Further questions should be directed to one of the committee members, Carol Ewing, Cathy Skivers of California ((510) 357-1986), Mike Hoenig of Iowa, Carl McCoy of Florida, Stephanie Hall of Minnesota, Terry Pacheco of Maryland, Carol Edwards of Texas, and Mike Godino of New York.

Nominations must include a letter of request by the nominee and a letter of support by his/her affiliate president. These are due at the ACB office by April 1, 2008.

Financial donations are to be made payable to ACB-DKM and mailed to ACB in Minnesota (120 S. 6th St., Suite 1005, Minneapolis, MN 55402) or D.C. (see address on inside front cover of magazine), or given to a DKM committee member.

Tickets for the prizes are $1 each, or a book of 6 for $5. Tickets may be secured from Cathy Skivers or Carol Ewing. The drawing will be held during the DKM reception in Louisville. Winners do not need to be present for drawings.

Thanks in advance for your support for this magnificent program. See you in Louisville!
