**Announcement** NFB of Utah State Convention , May 2, 3 & 4 Provo
We are very excited about the upcoming NFBU State Convention! This is an incredible opportunity to network with other parents and meet successful blind adults living in our community. Can't attend both days? The UPBC is sponsoring a workshop on Friday, May 3rd.
"Assess Your Knowledge on Assessments" (6-8pm) Participants will learn that an IEP is only as good as the assessment it’s based on. You will hear the unique expertise and perspective of a Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI) who is also a school psychologist. Become better prepared for discussing your child’s IQ and academics assessments that are intended for sighted students. Board Elections will also be held.
