2017 WYCB Annual State Convention

Wyoming Council of the Blind
2017 State Convention
Saturday, September 23 – Casper, WY
General Information

You are invited to attend the 2017 WyCB State Convention.  This year’s theme, “Re-Grouping,” will focus on new opportunities to revitalize our organization, as well as help attendees acquire the confidence and skills to press-on with their lives despite their low vision or blindness.
The convention will be held on Saturday, September 23 in the board room of the Oil & Gas Commission Bldg. located at 2211 King Blvd.  The program will include a keynote address from ACB President, Kim Charlson, an update from Laurel Henry, WIL/VIP Lead Specialist, a life success story from Ilene Whiteley, a hi-tech update by Brian Charlson, and a helpful advocacy presentation by Carolyn Yeaman from “P & A”. 
A box lunch will be served consisting of assorted sandwich selections, including chips, cookie, some salad, and a soft drink.  Our annual scholarship will be awarded during lunch, and we will again present the Member-of-the-Year plaque.
We will hold our lively fundraising auction immediately after lunch, followed by the annual membership business meeting at which time we’ll elect some new officers and directors.  Tickets will also be sold for the 50/50 cash raffle, with the winning ticket to be drawn at the close of the day.
In addition to Saturday’s activities, you are invited to attend a NO HOST, order-off-the-menu dinner at 6:00 PM on Friday, the 22nd.  This casual dinner will give you an opportunity to meet and greet President Kim Charlson and learn more about ACB, our parent organization. This dinner will be held in the Spruce Room of the Ramada Plaza Casper Hotel and Conference Center, located at 300 West F St. in Casper.
You are also invited to attend a NO HOST buffet breakfast at 9:00 AM on Sunday, the 24th, located in the Ramada Plaza.  This will give us an opportunity to discuss the convention and a way forward for WyCB.
For those of you coming from out of town, a block of rooms has been reserved for us at the Ramada Plaza Casper Hotel and conference Center.  The room rate, including taxes, is $70.85 per night.  Reservations can be made by calling (307)235-2531.  Be sure that you mention that you are with WyCB.
As you can see, the convention has been changed to reflect some of the earlier concerns of many of our members.  The registration fee will now be $20.00 per person, which covers the cost of lunch, refreshments, and convention materials.  Friday night’s dinner and the Buffet breakfast on Sunday morning are NO HOST, and are optional.  Please check the appropriate spaces on the enclosed registration form and return by September 8th.
We look forward to seeing you in Casper in September.
