Colleagues and Friends:


The Potomac Chapter National Federation of the Blind is holding its April
2017 meeting Thursday, April 20, 7 pm, at St. George's Episcopal Church, 915
North Oakland Street, Arlington, Room 114.  It is just one block from the
Virginia Square metro station.  Below find directions.


As you recall we moved the meeting to this date because the church was not
available during Holy Week.


I am giving short meeting notice because I want to include the nominating
committee report.  With potential board members not available, we are
delayed in making the committee announcement.  I apologize.


Deepa is demonstrating the BARD book reading system and we will discuss our
successful membership seminar along with other items.  Of course we will
have the  usual refreshments.


If you have suggestions for the agenda, please let me know, by email before
Wednesday evening April 19.  My email address is johnh50 at verizon.net

Many thanks to the nominating committee.  The report is below.
