Calling all Transcribers, TVIs, Paraprofessionals, Parents,  and Professionals in Blindness field,

I would like to extend an invitation to the National Braille Association Spring 2015 Professional Development  Conference and the kick-off event of our 70th anniversary year. From April 16th to  April 18th,  we will convene in the "friendly city" of Austin, Texas. Referred to as the city of slogans,  Austin is most known for being the "live music capital of the world."

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering the three-day intensive training on the Unified English Braille (UEB) code that was so well received at our Fall 2014 conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This training, referred to as "UEBe Ready", is a must-attend workshop for any transcriber or teacher who needs to be prepared to transcribe using UEB. This workshop is limited to the first 200 people who register, so make sure to sign up as soon as possible.

Additionally, we will be offering a three-day "Braille Boot Camp, " a two-day training on CorelDRAW, and  our standard three days of half-day workshops. Some workshops are limited in the number of participants,  so don't delay in registering.

Our host is the Double Tree Austin. The room rate is $149.00 per night for single or double occupancy. Reservations must be made on or before March 29, 2015 to receive the conference rate.  Early-bird Registration is $175.00 through February 28, 2015. There will be NO On-site registration at this conference.
