The following is exciting information from Ruth 
Sager, senior division president.


Are you about to be a senior?  Interested in 
issues of special concerns to senior citizens or 
do you work with the elder population? If you 
answered “Yes,” to any of these questions, 
then our senior seminar and annual senior division meeting are for you!

On Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at 1:00 our 
seminar—Senior Empowerment:  Considerations For 
The Next Chapter In Your Life is a panel 
discussion presented by five experts in the field 
of senior housing, legal issues,options for 
remaining in the home with supportive care as 
needed and choosing the right assistance when the 
time comes. Whether looking for information to 
make your own choices in the near future or 
caring for parents and other family members, this 
seminar will answer your questions and put you in 
touch with services you might not otherwise know 
about that are available to you in most 
communities across the country.  Find us in Salon 20 Level 2.

Our annual senior division meeting takes place 
Thursday, July 3, 2014 with registration 
beginning at 12:30-1:30 and the meeting 
following.  Our annual dues are $5 and can be 
paid either at the Tuesday seminar or the 
Thursday meeting.  Should you wish, this year for 
the first time, we are offering Life-Time 
membership of $100.00.  Make checks payable to 
NFB Senior Division.  As always—our not-so-silent 
Auction.  Please bringauction items to Salon 20, 
Level 2 at 12:30.  Both our seminar and our 
senior meeting are in the same room.

This year we have wonderful items to auction and 
a fabulous donation from Abise Inc. Ms. Lori 
Berkey, customer support and marketing associate 
from Abise Inc. will showcase products her 
company sells that may be of special interest to 
seniors with low vision. Abise Inc. has 
generously donated a refurbished Eye-Pal Solo 
stand-alone scanner/reader/magnifier to our 
division for our auction which retails $1400.00. 
Please stop by the abise Inc. booth at C26 in the 
exhibit  hall to see this 
scanner/reader/magnifier and come to our meeting 
on Thursday and bid—you may be the lucky one who 
takes it home with you! We will auction this item 
off around 4:00 p.m.  If you cannot be present to 
bid, give our auction folks written bids or have 
someone representing you offer a live bid from the floor.

See you in Orlando!
