The spring board meeting of the Braille Authority of North America, which was scheduled to be held March 19-21, 2020, in Baltimore, Maryland, has been postponed. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution during this time of public health concern. New meeting dates and details will be forthcoming.

The mission of the Braille Authority of North America is to assure literacy for tactile readers through the standardization of braille and/or tactile graphics.
