GDUA 2016 Conference and Membership Meeting

The 2016 GDUA Conference and Membership Meeting will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Join us for a day of seminars regarding such topics as state legislation, pet insurance, self defense, and ride-sharing services. Officer and board elections and constitutional changes will also be a part of the event. An agenda will be posted soon. Your registration fee of $20 helps us pay for the venue and includes a continental-style breakfast and lunch.

Registration is now open, and you do not need to be a member of GDUA to attend. However, if you would like to renew your membership, register for the conference, and enter your name into a dual registration and membership-only drawing, save yourself some time by filling out one form instead of two. Fill out the 2016 Membership and Conference sign-up form.

2015 Workshop Recordings

We had some outstanding speakers at our 2015 fall seminar. For the first-time in GDUA history, we are offering these free recordings for those members and friends who were not able to attend these sessions live or for those wishing to enjoy them again. We appreciate the generosity of all the speakers who gave of their time and talents. Those featured here have given permission for their presentations to be recorded and shared.

To listen to a file, click on its name and the file will either begin to play or you may be prompted by your browser to save or open the file. These files are in WAV format. Depending on your Internet connection speed, it may take a minute or two for the download process. Finally, you may need to turn up your volume settings, especially for the introduction of the Goehring file. Portions of the question-and-answer segments may be difficult to hear as we did not have a portable microphone available.
