NFB of Virginia makes history

Greetings Members and Friends of the National Federation of the Blind,

We are excited to report that our 56th Annual Convention in historic Virginia was a success. We were honored to have two past Virginia Presidents, Alan Schlank and Charlie Brown with us to share memories. Our National Office was represented by Gary Wunder, President of the NFB Of Missouri. Gary delivered an inspiring banquet address and spent countless hours with each of us. Garrick Scott, president of the NFB of Georgia was
also with us encouraging students in our Youth Track. We were sadden by our President of the past 10 years, Fred Schroeder’s announcement that he would not run for President again. Even though his travel schedule will prevent his serving as President, he will remain active and available to the leadership of Virginia.

The newly elected Officers are:

  • Michael kasey, President
  • Tracy Soforenko, 1st Vice President
  • Jennifer Kennedy, 2nd Vice President
  • Mark Roane, Treasurer
  • Jennifer Shields, Recording Secretary
  • Mary Durbin, Corresponding Secretary

Please offer your support to the new team as we move forward to grow our Affiliate through recruitment, relationship building and seizing opportunities.

Thank you,
Michael Kasey
National Federation of the Blind of Virginia
