The time has arrived for all of us in ACB to begin thinking about this year's national convention in Louisville, Ky. In thinking about attending the convention, we also begin thinking about the issues that are important to us as people who are blind or visually impaired. One way that we do that is through the resolutions process. Anyone who is a member in good standing is free to write a resolution and bring it to the committee. You may submit your resolution in braille, large print, cassette, e-mail, compact flash card, or an SD card. All resolutions must be submitted to the committee in one of these formats no later than the close of the resolutions hearings on Tuesday, July 8. The committee will conclude each evening at approximately 1 a.m. Anyone wishing to submit a resolution before the start of convention is free to do so.
Each resolution that is submitted will be considered by the members of the committee. I will also notify the maker of the resolution as to when the committee will be hearing his/her particular resolution. If it involves a committee within the structure of ACB, I will contact its chairperson and ask if he/she or a representative from the committee can attend the hearings during the discussion of that resolution.
I look forward to hearing from those of you who have issues that you would like to bring to the forefront of ACB this year. You may contact me by e-mail at [email protected], or by cell phone at (940) 255-9241.
