Attention Current or Would-Be Office Professionals:
Lisa Hall, president of the National Association of Blind Office 
Professionals (NABOP), announces the next division meeting, scheduled 
for June 30, 2012,
in Dallas, Texas, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. Registration begins at 
6:30 p.m., and the meeting begins at 7:00 and ends around 10:00. This 
meeting is
for anyone working in an office as a medical transcriber, Braille 
transcriber, Braille proofreader, telephone operator, receptionist, 
clerk of any kind,
hotel reservationist, or other such fields. This year the group plans 
to have a Braille proofreader workshop, which will help anyone learn 
by hands-on
experience what it's like to work as a Braille proofreader. Handouts 
will be primarily in print and Braille for the benefit of Braille 
readers and sighted
transcribers and anyone who expresses interest in improving Braille 
skills. Mary Donahue and Lisa Hall will lead the session and will 
provide information
about what it takes to become certified as a Braille proofreader or 
Braille transcriber. Other agenda items are being worked on, but 
plans are not complete
at this writing. Come one and all for this great gathering and learn 
from others how to solve problems in an office environment.

If you plan to attend this seminar, let us know by June 15, 2012, so 
that enough copies of the handouts can be made. Send correspondence
