Greetings Colleagues and Friends,


          As many of you know, Business Leadership and Superior Training has
become the principal annual Conference for Blind Vendor and State Licensing
Agency management and staff over the past decade. Each year we have expanded
curriculum, added networking opportunities, team building exercises and top
notch tours and entertainment. In 2011, by popular demand, we are moving
this dynamic Business Leadership and Superior Training, BLAST Conference to
the fall. Save the date and join us for education, motivation and the
largest Trade Show for Blind Entrepreneurs and those with whom they work.


Save The Date: Wednesday September 21st - mid-day Saturday, September 25th,
2011. Rooms can be booked now. Simply call the Nashville Airport Marriott
(615-889-9300), tell them that you are booking for the National Association
of Blind Merchants, BLAST. Rooms are available at the unbelievably low rate
of $113.00 per night plus applicable taxes. These rates are effective from
Monday the 19th through Saturday, September 25th,  2011. Music city is
beautiful in the fall and as always, space is at a premium. Act quickly to
enjoy the party and promise of BLAST. The curriculum available at BLAST 2011
will be expanded to include those blind people, employment specialists,
Rehabilitation Counselors and others interested in developing or maintaining
small businesses unrelated to the Randolph Sheppard food service and vending
arenas. Much of Wednesday the 21st will focus on business planning, securing
funding, survey of potential small business opportunities, building
businesses in the areas of access technology, home based businesses,
government contracting and much more. The entire conference will be an event
from which everyone involved in Blind Entrepreneurship will benefit. BLAST
registration inclusive of all activities and training materials will cost
$200.00 with a $50.00 discount for early registrations made prior to August
15th, 2011. Registration fee may exclude some tours and events held outside
of the hotel conference center.


          Save the date and plan to attend another Business Leadership and
Superior Training, BLAST Conference. Feel free to share your ideas with us;
this is your Conference!
