This list is sponsored by the National Federation of the Blind, NFB, and the NFB of Florida.
The purpose of the Florida Association of Guide Dog Users-FLAGDU list, is to provide a forum for discussion and information to guide dog users and other interested persons. This list will feature announcements and activities of the Florida Association of Guide Dog Users. Topics related specifically to this division will include business, fundraising projects, advocacy issues, and planning for our annual meeting which takes place during the Florida affiliate’s State convention. General topics will include information for those interested in learning about obtaining and working with a guide dog, guide dog schools, training, care and retirement of a dog, and access and legislative issues pertaining to guide dog use.
We welcome questions and lively discussion, but showing respect for each member on the list is imperative. Keep messages on topic, and make sure that they are intended for the benefit of everyone. There will occasionally be posts concerning issues of major importance to blind people, as well as announcements concerning activities of the National Association of Guide Dog Users, and the National Federation of the Blind.
