American Printing House for the Blind, Inc.
October 11–13, 2012
Galt House Hotel, Louisville, Kentucky

Please join us as we celebrate the 2012 Annual Meeting of APH Ex Officio Trustees and Special Guests on October 11–13, 2012, at the famous Galt House Hotel and Suites on the Ohio River in downtown Louisville.

Dr. Cay Holbrook
Keynote Speaker

The theme for the 144th Annual Meeting of Ex Officio Trustees, “Traveling The Extra Mile,” honors the contributions of those service providers who go many extra miles to assist APH in our work. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to hear Dr. Cay Holbrook deliver her keynote address honoring the great work of her personal heroine, Annie Sullivan.

Opportunities not to be missed include exciting presentations on APH products by our staff and consultants, including Kay Ferrell, Derrick Smith, Lisa Wright, Debra Sewell, Donna Brostek Lee, and many others. The APH InSights Art Awards Banquet is sure to inspire, and you’ll find many opportunities to network with APH staff and other colleagues as YOU travel the extra miles between your room and the meeting rooms at the Galt House!

Other "you had to be there" moments will include Phil Hatlen’s and Pete Wurzburger’s inductions into the Hall of Fame for Leaders and Legends of the Blindness Field, and a presentation by retired teacher and author Ted Hull, whose book, The Wonder Years: My Life and Times with Stevie Wonder, tells the story of his experiences while going many extra miles as Wonder’s private teacher and constant companion for six years during the 1960s.
