NCSAB has a lot of work to do in 2013. Blind Americans need and want to go to work. Meanwhile, legislation is surfacing which will directly affect our programs. States continue their austerity measures, including under-funding programs and consolidation efforts. Technology and best practices continue to evolve. Randolph-Sheppard programs are on the verge of modernizing. All of this, and more, will affect our success in helping blind people find and hold good jobs.
I am confident that with your help we can meet these challenges. I am also confident that without your help, we cannot. Remember, as Margaret Meade once said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
I encourage you to stay engaged with your colleagues in NCSAB. Ask questions. Share your expertise. Help shape the national agenda. Share your success stories.
As President of NCSAB in 2013, I have three priorities: to keep you informed of national issues affecting our programs; to strengthen NCSAB as a network of colleagues sharing information and ideas; and to spread the word about the capabilities and successes of the people we serve and the need for continued support of our programs.
I look forward to working with all of you during the coming year.
David De Notaris, President
