The convention of the National Federation of the Blind of New Mexico will be held from August 25-28, 2022. Everyone is invited to attend the Board of Directors Meeting which will be held at 7:30 p.m. on August 25th.

Our first in person convention since the beginning of the COVID Pandemic we are excited to see one another, we look forward to a joyful, energizing event. Our planning is a little more complex, requires additional safety measures and flexibility to ensure a safe gathering therefore, we will be cautious in our return. For people not comfortable meeting in person, we may offer a virtual component limited to general sessions. This requires significant resources and planning; more information will follow.

We are happy to welcome a National Representative and will provide information as it becomes available. Highlights planned for the convention include:

  • Exhibits displaying technology and other items useful to the blind
  • Meetings of seniors, students, and parents of blind children to discuss current successes and challenges
  • Program items dealing with the training, education, and employment of the blind
  • Door prizes
