ACBT 2015 State Conference/Convention Peggy R. Garrett
The theme for the 2015 Conference/Convention is: “Beach-building, Educating, Advocating, Celebrating in Harmony.”
Corpus Christi, Texas, is the place to be this fall! The Conference/Convention Committee is working hard to plan programs and sessions that will inform, educate, and entertain attendees. Some of the sessions include Services and Resources For Seniors, Accessing Social Media, Fraud/Identity Theft, How To Become a Smart Traveler, Resolving Advocacy Conflict, and back by popular demand, Ballroom Dancing!
Of course one of the highlights is always the exhibit hall. In addition to having hands-on experiences with the latest technology and equipment designed to create more independence for people who are blind or visually impaired, there will be opportunities to purchase jewelry, clothing, purses, fragrances, and much more! The 2015 Conference/Convention promises to offer something for everyone. It is shaping up to be an event you won’t want to miss!
