Conference planning was a breeze recently when I assisted the International Association of Audio Information Services (IAAIS) and its Dallas host organization, Reading & Radio Resource, plan the 2010 Conference. Small conferences and boutique hotels make a great combination, at least when it’s the IAAIS and the Magnolia Hotel Dallas. Room arrangements, menus, audio/visual, and entertainment options all went smoothly.
IAAIS supports international radio reading stations for people unable to read for themselves because of vision loss or physical disability. These stations read daily newspapers, magazines, serialized books, and create programming for this special audience such as “Cooking in the Dark” and “Blind Employment.”
Station NTRB of Reading & Radio Resource is the North Texas service. If you know someone that could use a radio, call 214-871-7668.
