The 2019 Annual State Convention

The National Federation of the Blind of Georgia Annual State Convention is an ever-growing gathering of blind people, with a program agenda that serves to educate and empower. Each year blind persons, their family members, blindness professionals, service providers, and other interested individuals have the opportunity to network and exchange information and ideas.

Attendees meet and talk with many blind people who are successfully functioning in many occupations and professions. State and Federal administrators, elected officials, and the makers and distributors of new technology attend the NFBGA convention. Above all, a broad cross section of the most active segment of the blind population are present to discuss common problems and plan for concerted action.
