You are encouraged to join the former Durward K. McDaniel Fund Committee Chair Allen Casey and the current committee as we honor Durward K. McDaniel with an ACB Angel Memorial Tribute during the 59th annual ACB conference and convention in Schaumburg, Illinois.
Durward K. McDaniel is named “Father of ACB” due to his strong desire, courage and commitment to create an advocacy organization consisting of individuals who are blind, visually impaired or low vision. His legacy has lived on through leaders such as MJ Schmitt; Otis Stephens; LeRoy Saunders; Marlaina Lieberg, Sue Ammeter and many other leaders throughout the nation who dedicated themselves to carrying the torch forth in an effort to empower future generations.
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people. Together, we can keep the mission of ACB alive. We encourage you to partner with us to honor Durward as an ACB Angel. Make plans to submit your contribution no later than April 30, 2020.
Mail a check or money order made payable to ACB to:
