Greetings Dear Colleagues and Friends,


We are very happy to distribute the following exciting announcement from Mr. Dan Frye of the Rehabilitation Services Administration. Once again, it is clear that continuing education, leadership development and networking provided by Business Leadership and Superior Training fulfills and even exceeds State Licensing Agency requirements for upward mobility training.  See below for Dan’s email:


“I have reviewed the tentative curriculum and agenda for the September 2011 BLAST Plus conference that the National Association of Blind Merchants is organizing. I congratulate you and your team on drafting an excellent event, full of valuable seminars and presentations on many aspects of the Randolph-Sheppard Program and other entrepreneurial opportunities for blind business owners.


It seems quite clear that anybody participating meaningfully in BLAST Plus this year would be benefited. The Rehabilitation Services Administration believes that participation in BLAST Plus should easily qualify as training calculated to provide upward mobility to participants in the BEP program and would also serve as a valuable program management experience for administrators of Randolph-Sheppard programs throughout the United States. SLA staff and vendor attendance at BLAST Plus may certainly be characterized accordingly for all reporting purposes here.


I look forward to joining you in Nashville this fall for this significant event in the Randolph-Sheppard community.” –Dan Frye
