National Federation of the Blind 5th Annual Career Fair at Washington Seminar

When:  Jan 29, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (ET)
The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) of the District of Columbia would like to extend an invitation to your organization to participate in our 5th Annual Career Fair at Washington Seminar

WHAT IS IT?
The Washington Seminar is an annual event of the National Federation of the Blind to introduce the agenda of blind Americans--the priority issues requiring congressional attention over the coming year. The issues are selected from official positions of the Federation and may address concerns in the following areas: relevant civil rights issues; educational programs and services; rehabilitation of the blind for competitive employment; the operation of vending facilities by blind persons on public property; specialized library services for the blind; the organization and funding of federal programs; Social Security and Supplemental Income programs; and other timely topics.

EXPECTED ATTENDANCE:
Over five hundred people from the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Most of those attending will be blind. Also on Monday, January 29, 2018, at the National Association of Blind Students annual winter seminar, students from around the nation gathered to be inspired; to be informed; and, perhaps most of all, to prepare to take our message of equal opportunity for the blind to Capitol Hill.

DETAILS
The Career Fair will take place on January 29, 2018 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20024. Lunch and parking are not provided.
