Dear All,

                 The Federal Aviation Administration is seeking 
advice and input from service animal stakeholders, such as consumers 
and trainers, concerning Service Animal Relief Areas (SARAs) in 
airport terminals. On behalf of the National Association of Guide dog 
Users and the National Federation of the Blind, Merry Schoch and I 
will be participating in a SARA forum at the FAA headquarters in 
Washington, d.C. on Monday, March 3. In order to best represent your 
ideas and needs, I would like to have your input concerning the 
elements you believe should be incorporated in such a relief area. 
Keep in mind that this forum is an opportunity to offer suggestions 
on the ground floor before they are designed and implemented, so it 
is better to put such things in place in this stage than to make 
changes after the fact.

                 We would like to hear from you about any and every 
detail of this project from where the SARA should be located, what 
materials should be used, and any other considerations you believe 
would make it most usable to guide dog users. This is your 
opportunity to make a difference and all suggestions will be 
presented to the FAA and its engineers. Please send all comments, 
suggestions, and input to me no later than Saturday, March 1 by 4:00 
p.m. You may email me at

                 If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to 
the National Association of Guide Dog Users to support our advocacy 
efforts, you may do so by going to


Your input and support are greatly appreciated.

Fraternally yours,
