Currently we've scheduled tours of Perkins School for the Blind on Thursday August 9th and weather permitting we are considering a picnic and river walk on the Perkins grounds. In the evening there will be a wine and cheese event held at MGH to kick off the conference.

Friday and Saturday will be dedicated to speakers and breakout sessions held in MGH conference facilities.

On Sunday we are considering having an optional field trip as a fun group event.
