Call for nominations: Dr. Dayton M. Forman Memorial Award (due August 17th)

This award, established by the CNIB Library board of directors in January 1996, recognizes outstanding leadership in the advancement of library and information services for Canadians who are living with vision loss.

It is offered in tribute to Dr. Dayton M. Forman, an exceptional humanitarian and longstanding CNIB volunteer, who exemplified the leadership required to make a difference for over half a million people across Canada living with vision loss.

The recipient is awarded a silver medal bearing the likeness of Dr. Forman and an inscription in print and braille.

This year’s award presentation will take place on October 29, 2015, at a network reception held in conjunction with the CNIB 2015 Braille Conference in Toronto, Ontario.
