I am sorry that you are receiving duplicate emails. But, if you are not on both Listservs, you may miss an announcements. Is there one Listserve that you wish to receive announcements on? We can remove you from one of them if you wish. Some of our members are on just one and we are trying to cover everyone.
How is Bryant.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

This is from our State President
Because all of you are part of the leadership if you have not agreed to serve please do.
I am pasting the 2018 committee appointments below.
Please let me know which committees you would like to serve on by November 25 .
If you want to chair a committee let me know that as well. I will take that under consideration.
Also you will not be put on the committee just because you desire. Just because you were the chair previously or on a particular committee this year that will not confirm your being on the new committee. If you believe you should chair a committee let me know in detail why.
