Whereas, some state and local governments do not have fire safety codes to protect their citizens and visitors; and
Whereas, the safety of ACB members, their families and friends while attending our national meetings is of the utmost importance;
Now, therefore, be it resolved by the American Council of the Blind in convention assembled on the 16th day of July, 2014, at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, that all future convention hotels and related facilities must be covered by fire safety codes and/or regulations; and
Be it further resolved that no future contracts for convention hotels or related facilities shall be entered into by ACB without written assurances that hotels and related facilities are in compliance with applicable fire codes and regulations.
