Blind Students Breaking Barriers, Building Networks, & Bringing Change

Welcome to the home page of the National Association of Blind Students, a proud division of the National Federation of the Blind and the largest movement of blind students in the world. Each day, we seek to empower blind students to live the lives they want through organized activism, mentorship, leadership development, resource sharing, and so much more!

Announcing the 2022 in-person Atlantic Seminar! Reflect, Reequip, Reimagine: Raising the Bar for Blind Students!

The National Association of Blind Students (NABS) and the National Federation of the Blind of Maryland invite you to the 2022 Atlantic regional seminar, a fun-filled weekend brimming with opportunities for professional growth, confidence building, and mentorship from Friday, August 12 (6:00 PM) – Sunday, August 14 (12:00 PM) at the Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley by Marriott. The past years have challenged blind students in a variety of ways, but we will emerge stronger than ever. Through enlightening presentations, spectacular guest speakers, exhilarating activities, and thought-provoking discussions, we will reflect on the past, prepare in the present, and reimagine our future. Together we can raise the bar for blind students!

Registration closes on Thursday, July 28, 2022, but before you rush to reserve your spot, please note the following:

•Each attendee is responsible for a $100 registration fee, payable to NABS,

which will cover meals throughout the weekend as well as administrative

expenses necessary to support this event. We encourage you to proactively

reach out to your vocational rehabilitation agency and/or National

Federation of the Blind state affiliate to help offset this expense. This

fee is due by the time registration closes. Until we receive both your

registration form response and this fee, your spot is not guaranteed.

•Please note that all attendees will need to submit proof of a negative

COVID test within 60 hours of our event’s start, regardless of vaccination

status. This proof will need to be submitted to a designated party no later

than noon on Friday, August 12, 2022. Additionally, masks will be required

during any/all 2022 Atlantic Student Seminar activities.

•Finally, we will not be assigning roommates for this event. We are more

than happy to support you in finding a roommate if you require assistance,

which you can indicate on the registration form linked below; however, if

you do not either take the initiative to procure a roommate or reach out

for assistance, you will be responsible for the hotel expense of $104 +

applicable taxes and fees for each night of the event.
