Government Employees Wants You!
I invite you to become a member, or to rejoin, this special-interest affiliate of the American Council of the Blind. We are trying to revitalize this important affiliate to address the concerns that federal, state, and local government employees have regarding accessibility issues in the workplace. For those who are retired government employees, your past experiences would be most valuable in how you recall handling your job and accessibility issues.
I am planning to hold a meeting on Sunday, Sept. 25th at 8 p.m. Eastern time via Zoom. I will send out the Zoom information shortly before then.
ACBGE has an email list, too. To subscribe to the email list, send a message to [email protected], with the word “subscribe” (minus the quotation marks) in the subject field.
ACBGE dues are only $15. I hope that you will rejoin or become a new ACBGE member as we plan our exciting activities and informative programs for the year ahead.
To join or confirm your membership, email or call me with your name and contact information. You can reach me by phone at (312) 401-4961, or via email, [email protected].

The Zoom line would be the same for all those participating. The date is Nov. 12 from 11:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern or later.
