DC-MD Chapter of AER

Annual Awards Ceremony and Vendor Fair

Like many of you, we wish we could all be together to celebrate our amazing class of award winners this year, but we are excited to get a chance to do so in a virtual environment.

Please register and join us on Thursday, October 15 at 7 PM for our annual awards ceremony where we will honor a class of individuals who have dedicated their lives to education and rehabilitation of those who are blind or who have low vision.

Excellence in Direct Service in Rehabilitation — Sharon Payne

Excellence in Direct Service in Education — Bill McGeachy

Friend of the Blind and Visually Impaired Community — Mary Einsel

Excellence in the Field of Blindness and Visual Impairment — Karen Frank

Following the Award Ceremony, please stay and join us for a Vendor Fair at 8 PM. An exciting new virtual platform will be used that will allow participants to meet with vendors, see demonstrations, and view videos. Additionally, you can socialize and interact with friends and colleagues in virtual rooms and chat boxes. The platform is accessible and almost like being together.

To attend, you must register by October 13 at 5 PM. When you register, you will receive a confirmation email. The link for the ceremony and vendor fair will come from 10times.com on October 14. If you do not see it, please check your junk or spam folder. If you still do not see it, please contact us at this address.

This event is FREE to members and non-members, so grab your favorite snacks and beverages and join us for an evening of celebration and networking.
