AFB Events and Awards
The AFB Leadership Conference (previously known as the Josephine L. Taylor Leadership Institute) seeks to improve the quality of programs and services to blind and visually impaired children and adults. AFBLC provides a forum in which leadership personnel, in both education and rehabilitation, have the opportunity to increase their awareness of student and client needs, expand their knowledge, refine leadership skills, and share concerns and strategies.
The Helen Keller Achievement Awards were established by AFB in 1994 to acknowledge Keller's extraordinary efforts and promote the notable achievements of individuals and organizations that have improved the quality of life for people with disabilities.
Be sure to also view the American Foundation for the Blind's community calendar of events, which lists events related to blindness or visual impairment hosted by other organizations in the field.
