• The National Braille Association is pleased to make braille-related training available beyond the constraints of our semiannual professional development conferences. An agency (e.g. school district, state agency, braille production center, prison braille program, etc.) is able to request on-site training for braille transcribers and teachers in their area. As the single point of contact, the NBA National Office will coordinate all aspects of the event with the requesting agency and the instructor.

    For more information, please contact David Shaffer or call the National Office at (585) 427-8260.

  • Join us April 16th-18th, in Austin, TX, for our 2015 Spring Professional Development Conference. For this special 70th Anniversary event, we’ve added more workshop options than ever before.

    We’ve also developed a registration tool for Vendors wanting to be part of our Exhibit Hall at the spring conference, sponsor a conference function at the spring or fall events, and/or to purchase ad space in our conference programs. This website is also used for individuals wanting to commemorate NBA for its years of service or honor/memorialize a loved one, by placing an announcement in the conference programs.
