Dear NFB Members,
I am using this mechanism to let you all know
that I will be stepping down from the position of
associate director of BLIND, Inc. later this
year.Â I am going to semi-retire rather than
fully retire.Â I will be moving to a part time
project coordinator position, which means I can
work on those things that executive director Dan
Wenzel and the other staff don't have time to do.
Regardless of the date of the actual transition,
BLIND, Inc. is going to have a semi-retirement
party for me <x-apple-data-detectors://0>on
from 3 p.m. to 8, 9, or
<x-apple-data-detectors://1>10 p.m., or whenever
everyone leaves. Everyone who wants to come is invited.
If you want to come, contact Sid Starnes at
<tel:612-872-0100>612-872-0100Â or atÂ
<mailto:sstarnes at blindinc.org>sstarnes at blindinc.org.Â
Â If you want to send your regrets and/or well
wishes, please use my personal e-mail,
<mailto:dickblind at gmail.com>dickblind at gmail.com.
One individual already called asking if there is
a job description for my soon to be open
position. The answer is no.Â Dan and others say
it will be impossible to replace me. Some of my
work will be farmed out to others, and the duties
themselves will likely depend on what kind of
replacement or replacements we can find. The
position will be assistant director, not
associate director.Â So if you are interested,
send Dan a resume at
<mailto:dwenzel at blindinc.org>dwenzel at blindinc.org
or call him atÂ
<tel:612-872-0100>612-872-0100.Â Applicants can be either blind or sighted.
Some cautions: if you don't know something about
management, administration, and job placement, no
need to apply.Â This is a #2 job, which requires
an individual who is a self-starter, strong,
doesnât have a big ego, and can work
collaboratively with Dan to develop and enhance programs at BLIND, Inc.
Yes, I am going to stay as chair of the NFB
Employment Committee as long as our president and
I both believe I can do a good job at it. Lots
of good things are happening there, and it should be lots of fun for some time.
All the best,
