It’s time for the National Federation of the Blind of Georgia 2017 State Convention, and your opportunity to make this the great event that it can be.

As we prepare for the NFB of GA Annual State Convention in October this year. We are planning a number of activities and expanding the agenda to include multiple events on Friday.

Most notably, we are adding a seminar for job seekers, a seminar for blind students, and a seminar for parents of blind children to occur alongside the Senior Possibilities Fair that takes place every year.

Below are links that will provide you with copies of our Sponsor and Exhibitor Request letters in accessible PDF and Word formats. Please forward these letters to any individuals or organizations who may be interested in supporting our work to help blind Georgians live the lives they want.
