Colleagues,
Each year, VisionServe Alliance and National Industries for the Blind (NIB)—in partnership with the National Association for the Employment of People Who Are Blind (NAEPB)—host national events bringing together leaders among organizations serving people who are blind.

You may have noticed that the 2018 VisionServe Annual Executive Leadership Conference and the NIB/NAEPB Training Conference and Expo overlapped slightly. After discovering this scheduling conflict, VisionServe and NIB coordinated on a solution to allow our respective members the opportunity to attend both events comfortably.

The VisionServe Annual Executive Leadership Conference has been rescheduled to October 28-31, 2018. The location will remain in Portland, Oregon.

The date for the NIB/NAEPB Training Conference and Expo will not change. The event is still scheduled for the week of November 12, 2018 in Arlington, Virginia.

VisionServe and NIB have enjoyed a decades-long partnership to help improve the lives of those with vision loss. We’re confident this shift in date will allow both organizations to better serve our stakeholders, and we look forward to delivering productive events in 2018.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,
