            The Board of Directors of the National Association of Guide Dog Users (NAGDU), a strong and proud division of the National Federation of the Blind, is soliciting input from its members and potential members. We are considering changes to our membership dues and amendments to our national and affiliate division constitutions. In the true spirit of Federation democracy and collective action, the NAGDU Board is asking you to provide your input and suggestions. We especially want to hear from those of you who are members of state affiliate Divisions, as this will have the greatest impact on you!

            The next meeting of the NAGDU Board will be held via teleconference on Sunday, November 30 at 8:00 pm Eastern (7:00 pm Central, 6:00 pm Mountain, 5:00 pm pacific). The call-in instructions are pasted below my signature. Since we consider any guide dog user, future guide dog user, or anyone who has an interest in guide dog related issues a potential member, anyone who fits one of these categories is welcome to participate. 

            The National Association of Guide Dog Users is also planning some dynamic, interesting teleconference discussions and training workshops in 2009. Details of these events will be posted to the NAGDU mailing list, so you may want to subscribe to this special interest list sponsored by the National Federation of the Blind. To subscribe, go to
