More information to come in very early in the New Year.
Your Chapter contacts should have received information regarding the Division’s 50/50 Raffle to be drawn at our 2019 Triennial Conference on May 1st.
Please ask your Chapter Presidents/Contacts about this endeavour and please help to sell tickets – every little bit helps.

Tickets are only $2 and make great stocking stuffers!
British Columbia Voters: Vision Accessibility Related to the BC Province-wide Referendum on Proportional Representation
by Albert Ruel
A referendum on which voting system British Columbia should use for provincial elections is being held between October 22 and November 30, 2018.
Registered voters will receive a voting package in the mail between October 22 and November 2. If you do not receive a voting package or are not currently a registered voter, you can ask for one from Elections BC, a Referendum Service Office or a Service BC location by November 23.
For this referendum, voters who read braille can request a braille template package and ballot question to be used when completing the mail-in voting package.
Please call Elections BC at 1-800-661-8683 to request a braille template and ballot question, or if you
have any questions regarding voting in the referendum. Information on the voting systems featured in
the referendum can also be found at
We have put together a Team from our membership to overhaul our website. Your webpage team consist of Joanne Dufault, Kathy Sanness, and Kelvin Adams.
We have set a overall theme to our site to give it a new look and feel. There will be some major changes over the next couple months.
We welcome all members input into the overall reconstruction of the site. We are striving to make the site assessable to all of our members with both limited and no sight. Also to make it easier to access from search engines so people can learn about how our organization can help.
Please send all your ideas and input to
Kelvin Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org
