At least no more money or resources will be wasted on this.

Subject: Vision Summit cancelled
We wanted to let you know that the Vision Summit planned for 2016 has been
cancelled. As discussed previously, and finally concluded, FAASB, consumer
groups (FL. NFB and ACB), as well as other stakeholders have agreed that the
Vision Summit no longer really accomplishes the goal of creating greater
awareness about visual impairment with our Florida Legislators.
FAASB will be working on a plan to accomplish this goal, possibly with
regional summits or activities. FAASB hopes for the continual and important
involvement of DBS as we move forward to ensure greater awareness of the
needs of people with vision loss continues.
We hope this does not inconvenience DBS or the Fl. Rehab Council in any way.
