The American Foundation for the Blind's 2014 Leadership Conference took place February 27-March 1 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. This year's conference theme was "your bridge to the future," and our sessions (which are eligible for ACVREP and CRC CEUs) focused on

This conference always brings together today's leaders and the leaders of tomorrow. There are plenty of opportunities to learn from the best and brightest minds in our field, make new connections, and reunite with old friends. And don't forget to celebrate with this year's winners of the AFB Access Awards on Friday and the prestigious Migel Medal on Saturday.
