  1. Hi Dan
    Mike Horner here. Just wondering if the Chapter has heard of an NVDA training that Rising Tide is conducting on June 3rd. The focus is on affinity groups that organizations or friends create who can train together. If you have members who might be interested l can send you more details. I hope to hear from you.



    • Mike, I haven’t checked into my blog in years, I had forgot my login and password. Through some painstaking searching records on one of my thumb drives and a lot of guessing finally got in and just saw this email.

      Mike you should have my email
