Subj: [Chapter-presidents] NFB of Illinois Forms Guide Dog Users'
I am excited to announce that the National Federation of the Blind of
Illinois has begun the process of organizing the Illinois Association of
Guide dog Users. On Tuesday, October 25, Patti Gregory-Chang, NFBI president,
facilitated the organizational meeting of the affiliate's Guide Dog Users'
Committee, the first step on the path to division status. On November 29,
the committee will meet again. One of the priorities of this next meeting
will be to elect those who will lead the committee until it ratifies a
constitution and elects a board of Directors. Once formally organized, the
Illinois Association of Guide Dog Users will become a division of the National
Federation of the Blind of Illinois and an affiliate division of the
National Association of Guide Dog Users (NAGDU).
NAGDU currently has affiliate divisions in California, Florida,
Missouri, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Members of affiliate NAGDU
divisions are members of the National Association of Guide Dog Users with
all of the rights and privileges of membership. NAGDU also has or is in the
process of organizing Guide Dog Users' Committees in Georgia, Michigan,
Mississippi, New Hampshire, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia. If you are
interested in supporting the work of NAGDU in your affiliate, please get in
touch with me. My contact information is below my signature.
