Speaking Opportunity


If you are coming to the National Federation of the Blind annual convention
(http://www.nfb.org/national-convention) which will take place in Dallas
Texas from June 30 through July 5 2012, please consider the following
speaking opportunity.

The National Federation of the Blind in Computer Science is looking for
blind students who are studying in the fields related to Information
Technology.  Whether you are concentrating in the areas of programming,
systems analyst, technical support specialist, or network administration, we
would like to hear from you.

We are interested in hearing about the triumphs and challenges involved in
modern education you have experienced because of blindness.  What tools have
you found to be particularly helpful in your classes and projects, what
changes do you foresee which will pose significant challenges for your
continued success in your chosen career?  What indications do you see which
give you hope?

We are asking you to give a fifteen minute talk, followed by a 10 minute
question and answer period.

The National Federation of the Blind's Computer Science Division meeting is
scheduled for July 2, 2012 from 1 PM to 5 PM.  

If you are interested in this speaking opportunity, then we very much want
to hear from you.  Please contact Louis Maher (ljmaher at swbell.net,

Thank you.

Louis Maher
