Sinceall of these examples reinforce Braille FormatsR2, §5d (3) (a), it makes me wonder what Braille FormatsR1, §7b (5) is all about.35Business ColumnBob Walling, CBTTo Arms, To Arms!Now is the time for all good men (and women) to come to the aid of CTEVH. If it is “one if by land and two if by sea,” then how many lanterns do we hang if it is by the economy? By now you have heard that we changed our name. California Transcribers and Educators of the Visually Handicapped (CTEVH) is now California Transcribers and Educators for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CTEBVI). I will refrain from commenting on CTE(whatever). When I go to conference I get fired up. It reinforces why I volunteer to help kids that I have never met. At every conference I learn something so Ican help you help those kids. At this conference I heard that the aforementioned economy was taking a bite out of CTE(whatever). Did you go to conference? Did you pay this year’s dues? Did you realize thetwo things are mutually exclusive? We just lump them together for convenience. There are about 200 loyal, dedicated CTEVH members who need topay this year’s dues. PLEASE, pay your dues and stay current. Think of the $50 as 14 Starbucks Lattes spread over 365 days. Before going to conference, I did not know how bad the economy had gotten in California. It was explained to me that several of our members were denied travel funds due to the economy. Others were not allowed to attend, unless they took personal leave and refrained from identifying their
agency. Our group was diminished not only by the numbers of participants but also by the ideas these members bring to the table. I want to publicly thank those “citizens” who showed up with familiar facesand blank nametags. We need everyone’s ideas to keep fighting for the blindand visually impaired. Unfortunately, we also need your help to fight the economy to keep CTEBVI alive. Every one of us needs to fight for donations to CTEBVI with the samefervor and resolve I have seen from each of you when it comes to the aforementioned kids. This includes the life members. You are the base of our organization and again we need to call on your support. Just because you chose life membership years ago, please don’t stop adding a few bucks to the pot. I will personally guarantee not a cent will go to bonuses for a“fat cat” executive.
