                 The National Association of Guide Dog Users, a 
strong & proud division of the National Federation of the Blind, is 
proud to announce some unique items for sale at this year's 
convention. Whether you are a guide dog user or not, what we have to 
offer should be of interest to you! This message also contains 
information about the NAGDU meetings at convention, so please read 
the entire message!
                 As an item of general interest, we will be selling 
Florida-themed bottle openers. These high quality metal bottle 
openers come in the shapes of a dolphin (with its tail!), a palm 
tree, a parrot (for all the parrot heads in our Movement), and a 
flip-flop. Each opener is $3.00 or you can purchase all three for $10!
                 For the guide dog user, we will have bone-shaped 
pick-up bag dispensers emblazoned with the NFB logo and the number 
for the NAGDU Information & Advocacy Hotline. These dispensers are $5.00 each.

                 This year, NAGDU will hold its annual meeting in two 
parts, each followed by a dynamic presentation of interest to all 
guide dog users. Both meetings begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. with 
registration beginning at 6:00 p.m. On Monday, July 1 in Salon 4, 
Level 2, we will hear our committee reports, including information 
about the NAGDU Information & Advocacy Hotline, our Guide Dog 
Consumers' Satisfaction Survey, and other initiatives of NAGDU. 
Following this portion of the meeting, we will have a panel 
discussion concerning service dogs in zoos. The panel will feature a 
ranking representative from the Disney Corporation, a representative 
from a local community zoo, and the Vice President of Federal 
Relations with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums. If you have ever 
experienced issues concerning access to a zoo with your guide dog, 
please help us begin the dialogue with those who really can make a difference!
                 On Wednesday, July 3, NAGDU will meet in Salon 10, 
Level 2 to hold the second half of its annual meeting, including 
elections. Following the Business Meeting, we will hear from guide 
dog training programs about their input on our Guide Dog Consumers' 
Bill of Rights that was passed at our Annual Meeting in 2011. Please 
join us to hear your guide dog training program's input on this 
important document! Following the meeting, interested individuals 
will be given the opportunity to test drive a guide dog!
                 NAGDU looks forward to seeing you at our meetings. 
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
