Carla Ruschival

Hello Fellow ACB Leaders,

We would like to congratulate Eric Bridges on his new position as
Executive Director for the American Foundation For The Blind (AFB).
Eric has done an amazing job in his various roles with the American
Council Of The Blind (ACB) over the past 15 years. Eric was elevated
to ACB Executive Director in fall 2015 and his leadership has been the
cornerstone of ACB's influence over the past 7 years. He has directed
our staff and represented our organization by speaking out on the
issues impacting our blind and low vision community. We thank Eric for
his service to ACB and we look forward to continuing our strong
partnership with AFB.

Eric's last day with ACB will be on March 21. The ACB Board Of
Directors will hold an Executive Session at our March 9 Board of
Directors meeting to consider next steps in filling the ACB Executive
Director position with an Interim Executive Director. We have a strong
board and staff that will all work together to continue the mission of
our organization. Together, we will work to make this an orderly and
seamless transition.

Warmest Regards,

Dan Spoone
ACB President
