Welcome to the NFB Travel & Tourism Division.
A proud division of the National Federation of the Blind.
All are welcome
As with almost everything on the internet today, this web site is now and we hope will continue to be, a work in progress. We, in the National Federation of the Blind, want to share the truth about blindness especially in the travel area with as many people both blind and sighted as possible. It is our belief that blindness in itself is simply one of many characteristics which go into a person’s other makeup and we feel it is of a nuisance than anything else.
The NFB Travel & Tourism Division was started in 2001 and has just celebrated 12 years. We are not just about leisure travel. Our division wants to achieve equality, opportunity and security for the blind in all things travel. We also work with people wanting to go into the travel industry; as either travel agents, or how to get ones foot in the door of employment with places like Disney Corporation.
Our December meeting will be Tuesday, December 3rd at 8 PM Eastern. We are electing our Interim Treasurer Glenda Farnum from Oklahoma.
Also We will be discussing our resolution for a joint meeting in January with the National Association of Guide Dog Users Board of Directors meeting.
So join us by calling (805) 360-1000 and the access code is 871517#
The purpose of the National Federation of the Blind Travel & Tourism Division is to aid the National Federation of the Blind. It is to serve as a vehicle for collective action by the blind of the nation. This division functions as a mechanism through which all interested blind and sighted persons can come together to plan and execute programs that improve the quality of life and travel for the blind. We promote vocational, cultural and social advancement of the blind; to achieve integration of the blind into society on the basis of equality with the sighted; to focus attention upon accessibility and problems facing blind travelers, to educate blind people interested in the travel and tourism industry; and to take any other action necessary to improve the overall condition and standard of living of the blind.
