Greetings from the 2018 NFB National Convention!

This week, I’m at the 2018 annual convention of the National Federation of the Blind. Like the 15 other conventions I’ve attended thus far, this one is a nice balance of learning, teaching, and catching up with old friends.
This year I am again serving on the NFB national scholarship committee. My primary responsibility has been to meet one-on-one with our scholarship finalists. This year all the finalists matched with me have been graduate students. So far, I’ve met with students pursuing advanced degrees in teacher preparation, healthcare administration, Judaic studies, and environmental engineering. The conversations have been intriguing and thought-provoking. Every finalist has asked me how they can become more involved in our organization, and it is my honor and pleasure to invite them to serve. I can’t wait to see what they accomplish.
Our convention lasts until Sunday evening. To listen to live audio from the convention and read our proposed policy resolutions, go to the NFB convention webpage.
