There was an error in the amount for the second prize in the raffle benefitting "The Braille Forum" ("Summary of the Mid-Year Meeting of the ACB Board of Directors," April 2005). It was listed as $3,000; the correct amount is $1,000.
Due to an editing error, it was reported that volunteers could not go on tours ("Riviera 101," May 2005). Volunteers will be on hand to assist conventioneers as usual; however, they cannot go to your sleeping rooms.
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people.
