That’s the weekend for the second annual Mid-Atlantic ACB Affiliate Convention!  If you were there last year, you know how informative and engaging the convention was, and if you missed it in 2007, you can stop regretting the fun you didn’t have, and get ready to attend this year’s regional ACB affiliate convention, where you’ll experience informative seminars, fabulous speakers, vendors from all over the DC metropolitan area selling and demonstrating products and services to fit every blindness need, a wonderful banquet where the former national ACB president and current Board of Publications Chairperson, Paul Edwards, will be the featured speaker. Renew old friendships, meet new people who understand, like you, the meaning of blindness and visual impairment, and share your experiences with others.  This year’s theme is “Short on Sight, Long on Vision,” so you will certainly have ample opportunity to renew your commitment to living a full and fulfilling life, no matter how much you see, or don’t see…
