Thank you for your interest Ted.  The meetings are held at the DOR
Headquarters building on Capitol Street in Sacramento.  They are quarterly
on Wednesdays and they are all day long from 9 am to 4 pm.  I am afraid this
will not work for you which really disappoints me because you would be great
on this committee.

Please donate to Braille Enrichment for Learning & Literacy (BELL) by
sending your tax deductible donation to:

National Federation of the Blind of California (NFBC)
3934 Kern Court
Pleasanton, CA 94588

Thank you,
Mary Willows, President NFBC

Good morning Mary.

I have an interest in serving on the board, however I have a couple of
questions that I hope you can answer.

1: where are the meetings held2: what time are they held3: what day of the
week are they held

I am attempting to find out this information before I apply because if the
meetings conflict with my work schedule I would not be able to do it.  

Thank you very much Ted Clark Schedules
