For over 70 years, the National Braille Association has been guided by a volunteer Board of Directors. It is now time to nominate individuals to fill the upcoming board vacancies that will be available in the Fall of 2018. Those selected to serve in the officer and director positions listed below will be installed at NBA’s Professional Development Conference in October, in Detroit, Michigan.
