AIMHE will be one of our legislative priorities during this upcoming Washington Seminar. NABS is making a significant effort to have a large student presence this year. Through our fundraising endeavors and President Riccobono’s generosity, we have financial resources to assist students to attend the Washington Seminar.
Encourage all students to apply for NABS funding who you believe would both benefit from attending the seminar and would be able to contribute to the student programming and advocacy.
As we cannot cover all expenses, we ask students to pay for what they can. Since many students can still not come up with the adequate funds to attend seminar. Any help from affiliates would be extremely helpful.
Many states have programs that are dedicated to the professional growth of blind students. Washington Seminar could be a great experience to incorporate into the program. If there is any way that NABS can help make this happen, please let us know. Such programs, can at times, receive some resources from vocational rehab or our News Line service, which could alleviate burden off the affiliate.
