Deadline for WBU/ICEVI Joint Assembly Registration is Fast Approaching!

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of history! During the week of August 18-25, 2016, you have the unique opportunity to attend the Joint Assembly of the World Blind Union (WBU) and International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI), which will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA.

This quadrennial’s Assembly is an exciting one for the North America region as, for the first time in its history, the gathering will be held in the United States. Hosted by the National Federation of the Blind of the USA, this week-long event will be filled with educational presentations, engaging speakers, networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall. Our local American hosts look forward to extending their nation’s hospitality to guests from more than one hundred eighty countries.
The highlight of the week will be a very special cultural night featuring classic American music, food, and America’s favorite pastime—baseball.
