All past, present, and future dog handlers among BVA’s blind and low vision veterans are encouraged to join this Tuesday’s (September 19) session via Zoom at 4:00pm Eastern Time. The session’s agenda includes a post-convention report, an announcement of new group members, and the administering of Narcan to dogs and cats. 

The meeting is open to all veterans with sight loss who are interested in topics and issues associated with guide dogs.  Attendance at previous meetings is not required to join and participate. The meeting will constitute the first virtual session since July 18 although interested dog handlers attended an August 16 in-person breakout at the 78th National Convention.

As announced by newly elected BVA National President Paul Mimms, the group to convene will heretofore be called the Dog Handlers Working Group. BVA will convene additional working groups focusing on issues relevant to the Association’s constituency, and individual working group leaders will collectively constitute a National Steering Committee reporting to the National Board of Directors.

Please share the meeting information and link freely. The sessions generally last approximately 90 minutes. For additional information from the Dog Handlers Group webpage under “Membership,” click here. To enter the meeting directly, click here.
