Curious about how fund-raising can be used as a membership tool? Want to know what makes special-interest affiliates successful in recruiting members? Come to the ACB membership seminar, titled "Growing & Strengthening ACB Today for Tomorrow." It will take place on Thursday, July 10, 2008 from 2-3:30 p.m. You'll get to hear about fund-raising, membership recruitment, and much more from the participating panelists. You can also learn who won the Affiliate Growth Award, about our new ACB brochure, about Spanish documents now available, and win a door prize!
Are you an avid reader? If so, you probably have books that you have read and perhaps even re-read that are just sitting on the shelves. Why not share those books with others and get some new reading materials at the same time?
LUA is holding a Bookmarket at the convention in Louisville. You may donate books to LUA or sell or trade with others. This is an opportunity to clean off your bookshelves and to pick up some new ones.
We encourage conventioneers to bring your braille, large print and audio books to the LUA Bookmarket on Tuesday, July 8th between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. So gather up those books that are just collecting dust and we'll meet you there.
LUA is a special-interest affiliate of the American Council of the Blind. Established in 1987, LUA is composed of individuals who are interested in improving library services for people who are blind or visually impaired. LUA members network and advocate for maintaining and increasing services for people who are unable to read regular print. In addition to the Bookmarket, we will be holding informative programs on Monday and Wednesday during the ACB national convention.
We'd love for you to join the LUA family. To become a member, send a check made out to LUA in the amount of $12 to Adam Ruschival, Treasurer, 148 Vernon Ave., Louisville, KY 40206.
