    June 29th, 2012 WBU e-Notice

    Here is our latest e-notice, listing WBU updates and related events. Please be advised that these twice-monthly updates will cease as of July as we will soon place most of our news directly to the WBU website. We will continue to send special notices for important items to members by email when required. Be sure to connect to the WBU website weekly for updates and to view important notices. www.worldblinunion.org  WBU/ICEVI updates: the deadline to submit resolutions or constitutional amendments is July 12th. This is in order to give enough time for these to be properly translated and reviewed and to meet the 4 month deadline imposed by the WBU constitution, so we need to receive all member’s corrections, and amendments by July 12th. Send your amendments to: info@wbuoffice.org  What’s your country’s position on a "books for blind people" treaty?
