News from the NFB and the FFB

This post is from Lauren Tappan:

  • The FFB, Foundation for Fighting Blindness, will have their Vision 2012 Conference at Hyatt Regency Hotel in Minneapolis from June 28 to July 1.
  • The NFB, National Federation for the Blind, will have their National Convention in Dallas, June 31 to July 5.  NFB will have their NC state convention at Camp Dogwood.
  • The Governor Moorhead School for The Blind in Raleigh is closing. A blind residential program will remain. This Blind Residential program will be a satellite of Wilson Deaf School. http://www.encsd.net/
  • There is now an effort to merge the commission for the blind into a super social services division and NFB is hoping this will not happen.
