From the Conference Coordinator

By Tom Burgunder

The PCB Conference is fast approaching. The dates are October 18-21, 2018. The event will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Green Tree. You must have booked a room at the hotel by September 16 to obtain PCB’s special room rate of $99. Reservations can be made after this date, but the discounted conference rate will no longer be available. The hotel’s local number is 412-922-8400. A $10 per night room subsidy is available to PCB members who reserve a room at the hotel. This $10 per night adjustment will be reflected on the room bill at checkout.

Registration for the 2018 conference is now open. Braille, large print, audio thumb drives, and email packets including the registration form have been sent out. You can register for conference meals and events online at

The conference planners have provided programming to interest everyone. A tour at the fabulous Heinz History Center is scheduled on Friday, Oct. 19. The schedule of events (included in the packet) describes everything.

Please consider donating auction items. They can be sent to Tom Burgunder, Pendale Towers, 460 Washington Road, Apt. ph5, Pittsburgh, PA 15228.

If you have questions, you may email me at or call me at 412-290-5481.

I encourage all of you to attend to socialize with old and new friends and to learn from the presenters. The officers, board and planning team are looking forward to being with all of you.
