                 If you are unable to join us in Orlando for the 
meetings of the National Association of guide dog Users at the 75th 
convention of the National Federation of the blind, we would like to 
offer you the opportunity to join us virtually. Once again, NAGDU 
will be streaming our meetings live for the world to hear! To listen 
to our live stream, simply visit


and find the link to the live stream on the Homepage. The stream will 
be available at approximately 6:45 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (5:45 
p.m. Central; 4:45 p.m. Mountain; & 3:45 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, 
July 5 and Tuesday, July 7. If you would like to comment or ask 
questions during the stream, PLEASE use the hashtag NAGDU2015. Please 
read on for more information about our proposed agenda.

                 On Sunday, July 5, we will hear from those who chair 
the various committees of NAGDU, including our Social Networking, 
Fund Raising, and Hotline Committees. Brett Sample, who is an NFB 
member, is creating a guide dog training program in Puerto Rico 
modeled after our NFB training centers. Brett will share his work and 
projections with us. We will also share exciting information about 
our progress enhancing access to the country's zoos. We will also 
find out where we are with our mobile app and hotline.

                 On Tuesday, July 7, our meeting will be called to 
order at 7:00 p.m. sharp. We will hear from Tim Elder, NFB's lead 
attorney in our federal law suit against Uber. Tim will share the 
most up-to-date information with us first, so join our meeting for 
this breaking news. We will also have a presentation by john Bifield 
from Freedom Guide dogs for the Blind about community & residential 
guide dog training and a panel discussion by officials of various 
guide dog training programs about ownership and the immediate and 
long-term considerations every potential guide dog program consumer 
should know about the practical implications of unconditional 
ownership compared to custody. During this meeting, we will also 
share guide dog user related resolutions passed by the Resolutions 
Committee the prior day. Most importantly, we will hold elections for 
vice President, Treasurer, and one board position.

                 For more information about our live stream or other 
NAGDU related communication, please send a message to
