The meetings will take place from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon and 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern time both days. Breaks will occur at natural pauses in the proceedings.
Items on the Board's agenda include progress reports of BANA's numerous ongoing projects. The Board will review formal reports from all of BANA's technical, general, and special committees such as those focusing on tactile graphics, braille formats, the Nemeth Code, and BANA publications. The Board will act on recommendations and will issue new committee charges when appropriate.
As always, interested parties are invited to observe BANA board meetings. Space is limited so if you are interested in observing the BANA meeting, please contact BANA Chair Tamara Rorie at 202-707-3001 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
