The National Association of Blind Students (NABS)
For over four decades the National Association of Blind Students has worked, as an integral part of the National Federation of the Blind, to promote the equality of the blind by serving as a source of information, forum for networking and vehicle for collective action for blind students. Our work on the local, state and national levels is firmly rooted in the conviction that blindness need not prevent one from excelling in a chosen field of study or living a full and productive life. Above all else, we are dedicated to changing what it means to be blind, by both changing perceptions among the general public of the capabilities of the blind and encouraging blind students to strive to achieve their maximum potential and realize their dreams.

NABS at National Convention!
June 8, 2012
NABS is excited to announce that we will be holding our annual seminar and business meeting at 7:00pm on Sunday, July 1 in the Stemmons Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole. This is a change from our location in prior years in Dallas. The Stemmons Ballroom is located on the lobby level of the atrium side of the hotel. You will find the action-packed agenda for the meeting here.
Registration for the meeting will open at 6:15pm, and the meeting will begin promptly at 7:00. We encourage students, teachers and parents of blind children to come out to the meeting. We would also love to welcome chapter and affiliate leaders to come and meet the future of our movement while offering wisdom, support and encouragement. Anybody who would like to support NABS is welcome to register for our meeting. And, the great news, if you do, you will be entered to win various wonderful door prizes, including a brand new iPod Touch, generously donated to NABS by Learning Ally. Better yet, if you are registered by 6:45, your name will be entered into the door prize pool twice!
Do you want to avoid that long registration line? Well, ask, and you shall receive. Thanks to the hard work of Mr. Tony Olivero, the NABS board is pleased to offer you the option of preregistering for the meeting. If you opt to do so, you will only need to provide your name or email address on meeting day, pay to register, and walk right in. Preregistrants will have their own faster-moving line and will be able to skip providing all their contact info. So, click right here and simplify your life!
And, don't worry, as long as you are through the line by quarter to seven, you too will be double entered to win that iPod, some $$$, or other great door prizes.
Please feel encouraged to be in touch with any questions, comments or concerns.
We look forward to seeing many of you in Dallas Texas!
