Just wanted to let you know that the Power Up 2009 in Columbia was really
good. It was well attended and there were some great seminars.
MCB was a sponsor once again this year and we had an
informational booth set up. I want to thank Leroy and Luretta Welch, Susan
Sanderson and my driver Mark for manning the booth. We gave away a portable
MP3 player and asked people to register for the drawing. There were over
150 people that registered and we now have their information to add to our
data base. Congratulations to our very own Linda Burriss for winning the
I also want to thank the office, Nbetsy and Elenor for
making the registration cards and creating some new brochures promoting the
programs MCB has to offer. They are doing a great job in the office.
After leaving Power Up I left for Jefferson City and met our
first vice, James Hollins. MCB along with NFB were asked to participate in
the Federal Monitoring done by RSA. This was a two hour session in which we
were asked to give our input on various issues concerning RSB. The meeting
was attended by James Hollins and myself representing MCB and Sheila Wright
and Gary Wonder from NFB. There were two representatives from RSA in
Washington DC that hosted the meeting. Included in the discussion was how
RSB could serve it's clients better, our opinion of the services they now
offer, and how to get more feedback from the blind community of Missouri.
It was a good meeting and the results should be available sometime in
September. I'll try and have more information on these events in the next
issue of the Chronicle.
