This is the time of year, where the blindness organizations in the U.S. round up the troops and get everyone together for their annual conventions! The American Council of the Blind is holding there’s from June 30-July 7 in Sparks, Nevada. There’ll be plenty of technology to see at the exhibit hall, workshops until you drop, and seminars and meetings to keep you hoppin’ throughout the day. And just to make sure you earn your sleep at night, there’ll be plenty of activities and gatherings happening after the exhibit hall closes each day. From a showcase of talented folks, (you know, ACB’s version of “So You Think You Can Dance”), among other wonderful things, to tours that take place around the city. From a candy factory to a train museum, there are activities for everyone!
Chatting About It All!
If you will be attending, or perhaps you won’t be, but you want to keep up with the action, there’s a WhatsApp group created just for that purpose! We’ll exchange convention information, experiences, and tips throughout the time we are in Nevada.
How do I Join?
Ensure you have WhatsApp installed on your device, and follow
to join our merry band of gypsies and contribute to the convention discussion! This group is exclusively to discuss ACB convention happenings, so I hope to se many of you there!
I will be on-site at the convention, perusing the exhibit hall and grabbing some interviews. So if you will be there, dear reader, come on by and say hi!

Either way, it promises to be a great convention, and I hope it’s enjoyable for all!
