NFADB Board Meeting sets the stage for exciting initiatives in the coming year!
Greetings! One of my favorite roles as the Coordinator of NCDB’s Family Engagement activities is to serve as an advisor to the National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB). This past weekend, I had the pleasure in participating in NFADB’s annual board meeting held on the campus of the Helen Keller National Center. The primary purpose of this meeting was to identify NFADB’s top priorities for this coming year. Through the course of this two day meeting, it quickly became evident that board members share a deep and strong commitment to promoting family leadership to advocate for individualized supports for people who are deaf-blind. At the end of this often exhausting but also energizing meeting, exciting plans unfolded to address this critical issue. I invite and welcome the voice of NFADB board members to this forum to better explain the activities NFDB will be conducting this year and hope others in the deaf-blind network interested in family leadership will join in this extremely important discussion.
Kudos to NFADB for its commitment and leadership to families across the country who have a member who is deaf-blind!!
