State Convention

National Federation of the Blind of Nevada 2018 State Convention

October 5th through 6th, 2018

Expect a weekend of energy as we Dare to Dream, Declare, and Deliver!

The 2018 National Federation of the Blind of Nevada State Convention will be held at the:

Nugget Casino Resort
1100 Nugget Ave.
Sparks, NV 89431

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

Mark your calendars and make every effort to attend the 2018 state convention of the National Federation of the Blind of Nevada. Get Involved. Make a Difference!
