It is very important for all convention attendees to be present at the Maryland Caucus on Friday, July 1 at 9pm. The meeting will take place in Suwannee 11. Be sure to bring your banquet ticket for banquet exchange. Bring money for Maryland snack bags and be ready to volunteer at the Maryland table in the exhibit hall and be ready to tell us when you will volunteer. For your reference and so you can stop by, especially to purchase instant lottery tickets, the Maryland exhibit table will be C8.
Congratulations to us! The 2016 session of the Maryland General Assembly was very successful. The General Assembly kept the $250,000 in the 2017 budget that Governor Hogan appropriated for the Center of Excellence in Nonvisual Access to Education, Public Information, and Commerce.
March is always an exceptionally busy month for the NFBMD. We are able to meet our goals and get our work done because many people are willing to lend a hand and participate. Many thanks to everyone who donated money, provided baked goods and participated in our basket bingo fundraiser which took place on March 11. Special thanks to the Central Maryland Chapter, who hosts this event each year. Plan to be at the next basket bingo on March 10, 2017.
