Call for Session Proposals

2024 Call for Session Proposals

The Pennsylvania Council of the Blind (PCB), which strives to promote independence and opportunities for people with vision loss, is seeking presentation submissions for its 89th annual statewide conference.  The conference will be held virtually via the Zoom platform from Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, 2024.  PCB welcomes session proposals relevant to this year’s theme of “Accessibility: A Buffet of Choices”.

As a network of blind and visually impaired peers, PCB recognizes the importance of moving forward in our journeys as productive, independent and thriving individuals with vision loss.  Together, as we seek and build our destinies, we offer encouragement to people who are new to vision loss, provide peer support to one another, bring about a more accessible society, and break down attitudinal barriers.

This year our Conference and Convention offers you Accessibility: A Buffet of Choices, which we hope will help everyone reach new levels of accessibility for the blindness community.  In journeying together, we encourage those around us to strive for higher levels of accessibility, which are more than what they have imagined for themselves.

We welcome practical presentations that are down-to-earth, nuts-and-bolts, and ready-to-use, as well as personal recollections and professional insights that open horizons, point out pitfalls, and beckon to new heights.  It’s all about how we, in the many, can empower and encourage one another to dare be better individually and collectively.

We welcome session proposals from peers, vision professionals, vendors, community leaders, and subject-matter experts through June 15, 2024.
