Conference call for guide dog users

Greetings. I received the following post from the national Association of Guide Dog Users, a division of the NFB, email list regarding a conference call that is to take place this Sunday, July 27. One need not be a member of either group to participate. If interested, read below for details. Enjoy.

Please distribute the following message as widely as possible.

The National Association of Guide Dog Users (NAGDU) is a
strong and proud division of the national Federation of the Blind. On
June 29, 2008, members of NAGDU elected a new Board of Directors. In
an effort to be responsive to our membership, the Board would like to
hear from you. Whether you are a NAGDU member or not, we want to know
what you expect from us and the direction in which you would like the
division to move.

On Sunday, July 27, 2008 at 8:00 pm EDT (7:00 Central,
6:00 Mountain, 5:00 Pacific) the Board of Directors of the National
Association of Guide Dog Users will host a round table
teleconference. This will be your opportunity to offer your input and
suggestions on the future projects of the Association and to ask
questions of its leadership. Some of the topics on which we would
like your input and comments are:

1.. a nationwide toll-free advocacy hotline;
2.. Local & national legislative initiatives;
3.. creating & strengthening affiliate divisions
4.. Website development;
5.. The relationship between NAGDU & guide dog schools
