It’s almost time for the ACB conference and convention. Whether you plan to be in Rochester or at home listening on ACB Radio, the ACB Mini Mall can help you join in the fun.
One of the attractions of holding the ACB convention in different cities is the chance to learn about the history of various regions of our country. The Eastman Kodak Company began in Rochester, and the conference theme, “ACB Picture the Future,” celebrates that heritage. The image shows a Kodak-like picture of Rochester, N.Y.’s hidden waterfall and skyline at sunrise, with beautiful colors reflecting from the buildings and the spray of the water. Picture the Future mugs, steins, shot glasses, magnets, computer messenger bags and keepsake boxes are available now, both online by following the ACB Treasures link from the Mini Mall home page at mall.acb.org and by phone at 1-877-630-7190. Order soon so you can sip your java from your Picture the Future mega mug while listening to convention on ACB Radio, or you can arrive at your convention hotel carrying your Picture the Future tote bag.
Order the official convention T-shirt or 2019 ACB convention pin when you pre-register; they’ll be ready for pick-up at the Mini Mall booth in the exhibit area in Rochester.
Make your suitcase, garment bag or backpack easy to spot when you attach a bright, durable ACB Hawaiian shirt or sandal luggage tag; they come in lots of bright colors. ACB logo on one side; lines for writing contact info on the other.
Has your cane seen better days? Order a new graphite or aluminum cane now from the Mini Mall and receive it before you leave for Rochester. And remember, if you leave your cane in the Uber or on the plane, the Mini Mall can come to the rescue. We’ll have canes and cane tips on hand in Rochester.
As of this writing, the Mini Mall Committee is hard at work adding items for our booth in the exhibit area in Rochester. Watch the June “ACB E-Forum” for a new Mini Mall catalog featuring the latest products. The catalog will also be available on the July NLS cartridge and via phone at (605) 475-8154. Braille, large print, and electronic price lists will be available at the Mini Mall and at the convention information desk, and they will be widely distributed on ACB email lists.
