Talk to the President February 2013

Dear Fellow AEBCers: 

Not in Canada, you say. Pity!

Since the advent of the internet, at least three chat sites designed specifically for people who are blind or partially sighted have been established. I refer to: http://www.for-the-people.com, http://www.vipconduit.com, and http://www.out-of-sight-net.

These sites are each divided into several rooms. There are rooms where you can play games, and others where you can play music for one another. There are rooms for people with diabetes, and others for those who are newly blind. There are also rooms specifically dedicated to musicians, piano tuners, handymen, and other occupations or professions.

While it’s true that anyone worldwide is welcome on any of these sites, it is also true that most of the participants are from the United States.

Your Next AEBC President

Dear fellow AEBC members: 

I hope that this blog finds everyone well.

As our 2013 AGM fast approaches, I thought that the time would be now for me to tell you that I will not be running for a second term as president of the AEBC.  With attending Law School, running my own business, and other family commitments, time would not permit me to give enough commitment and effort to the AEBC.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took the time and made the commitment to help me over the last two years and I thank the AEBC members for having given me the opportunity to be your president.  It has been a privilege and a great learning experience for me and I wish each and everyone of you the very best in your future endeavours.
