There are many special people who have played significant roles in the lives of blind and visually impaired people. The volunteer who works tirelessly at local chapter events, that member who runs the telephone tree, the deceased member who played a significant role in the history of your chapter -- often these outstanding individuals go unheralded on the national scene.
Now you can share the accomplishments of these special people by participating in the new commemorative section of the ACB convention program. Commemorative pages in the large print edition will be printed on high-quality paper; pages may include a color photograph of your special person and a short caption about his or her accomplishments. The text of the page will appear in the braille, tape and electronic editions of the program. What a wonderful way to honor or memorialize that special person!
To reserve commemorative pages in the 2008 ACB convention program, send photographs (digital preferred) and text, along with a check in the amount of $500 per page made payable to the 2008 ACB Convention, to: American Council of the Blind, 2008 ACB Convention, 120 S. 6th St., Suite 1005, Minneapolis, MN 55402.
