attention ACB and RSVA convention attendees

Ardis
 

Hi all,

If you plan to attend the convention virtually and would like a program in braille, large print or NLS cartridge, in order to ensure receipt of the program you must register by June 5th.  If you want the program via email or don’t wish to receive a program you may still register until June 20th when registration closes. If you want the program in braille, print or NLS cartridge and are attending virtually make sure to complete your registration by June 5th. Whether you are registering online or via telephone please read on for important registration information. If you are attending in person, register by June 20.

·         To register online , you must login to your member account at https://members.acb.org/. If you do not remember your login and password, you may select “password reset” or call the Minneapolis office at 612-332-3242. Once logged in to the members site, select the link labeled “ACB Convention.”

·         If you have not created a member account at https://members.acb.org/, select the link labeled “Create an Account” and provide the information requested. After creating an account, you can log in, but it may take up to 24 business hours before you will be able to complete a convention registration, as the Minneapolis office needs to link your member account to our database.

Once you have logged in select my account and begin with preferences.

To register via telephone please call Janet Dickelman, ACB convention coordinator at (651) 428-5059. If you receive voicemail please leave your name (with the spelling of your last name), your phone number and time zone. Also indicate if you know your username and password. One of the telephone registration cadre will return your call. Please note that the call will be coming from an individual not from ACB directly. We realize that many people don’t like to answer calls from numbers they don’t recognize but please if you are expecting a call to register it is important that you answer calls even if you don’t recognize the phone number until your registration is completed.

Hi all,

  If you know any vendors who qualify for either of these scholarships, please submit a letter of recommendation. Read the necessary requirements for each one. They need to be recommended by a RSVA member. Thus far, we just have one letter for the George Arsnow scholarship award. The Terry Camardelle scholarship was just added this year. Please submit as soon as possible.

 

ATTENTION: SAGEBRUSH SCHOLARSHIP NOMINATIONS

 

The Randolph-Sheppard Vendors of America® Awards Committee is seeking nominations for the annual George Arsnow Scholarship Award and newly created Terry Camardelle Scholarship Award. The RSVA® Sagebrush National BEP Training Conference offers the George Arsnow Scholarship to one newly licensed blind vendor/manager in the Randolph-Sheppard Program. An individual who has been licensed for less than five years and never attended a Sagebrush conference will be selected by December 31, 2021. Get your nominations in as soon as possible. The scholarship winner will be selected from among applicants who have been nominated by an RSVA® member in the state where he/she is licensed. The RSVA® Awards Committee shall consider the person’s background, training record, and business operations to date. The RSVA® member should send a letter of recommendation. The scholarship winner will receive airfare, hotel and free registration to enable him/her to attend all activities of the RSVA® Sagebrush National BEP training conference.

Throughout his tenure in this important post, he demonstrated a personal commitment to the Randolph-Sheppard Program and to increase opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired.
