2017 Call for Presentations


The Pennsylvania Council of the Blind, the leading advocacy organization for people impacted by vision loss in Pennsylvania, is seeking presentation submissions for the 2017 State Conference in Pittsburg, PA.

The 82nd Annual Conference will be held October 26 through 29, 2017 at The DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh Green Tree in Pittsburgh, PA.

Technology companies and others understand that in order to produce  state of the art products and software that provides an optimal experience, a great deal of time and attention is given to the initial design. Applying this idea both to the conference itself and more importantly to living a life with vision loss, we believe there’s value in the concept of “Designing Our future”.

Whether the vision loss occurs at birth, interrupts education or career or ensues in the later years of life; PCB strongly believes in equipping individuals with the information they need to continue in their personal journey.

Join the Pennsylvania Council of the Blind as we provide the premiere forum in the state assisting in the process of designing a future for anyone impacted by vision loss. This includes individuals adjusting to blindness or low vision, family, friends and care givers or vision loss professionals.

We encourage anyone interested in improving the lives of those with vision loss to consider our 2017 theme, “Designing Our Future” and submit the presentation proposal included.

Please feel free to share this request with any individuals or organizations that would have an interest in presenting to the Pennsylvania Council of the Blind.
