Dear Sirs,


As you know you and staff of BSBP have been invited to attend the National Federation of the Blind of Michigan's 45thth Annual State convention to be held in Flint, October 10 through October 12 by our President Larry Posont.  President Posont has given me the task of requesting that you bring or send a variety of materials, in variety of alternate formats to educate and inform attendees of BSBP's excellent services. This is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to Michiganders who are blind.


So, I am requesting the following (not an exhaustive list for sure):


-brochures about core VR services

-brochures about the BEP and BADP programs

-brochures about the Braille and Talking Book program

-brochures about the Training Center


Again these are but a few examples.


In addition there will be many newly blinded persons with varying accommodations needs so I'm requesting that these materials are made available enlarge print, Braille, audio, and as Word documents on thumb drives.


I'm certain that as the lead federally funded agency for Michigander's who are blind you have outreach packages in a variety of formats at your read.


Now, as stated  over the phone yesterday you may send me these materials at my physical address listed above and I will take responsibility for ensuring distribution. Or your staff who will be attending may bring them to our convention for distribution at our literature table.


If you have any questions about this matter I am at your disposal and you may call or write me.
