The “Dare to Be Remarkable” residential rehabilitation conference was held at the National Center for the Blind from Wednesday, December 5, to Friday, December 7, 2007. Over one hundred and fifty professionals gathered to discuss a wide range of issues involved in operating residential rehabilitation centers for the blind, but the conference was not all work. Luncheons and a reception were also part of the program.

 

The NFB of Utah auditorium in the Jernigan Institute was filled to capacity when Joanne Wilson, executive director of affiliate action, called the Dare to Be Remarkable conference to order. Conference delegates are pictured here assembled for the Thursday luncheon. Festive holiday decorations can be seen.
