Chair's report: ongoing event promotions


Dear members of the NVDA Tenth Anniversary Committee, NVDA users, developers, supporters and others:

My name is Joseph Lee, the chair of the NVDA Tenth Anniversary Planning Committee. I'd like to first wish you a happy new year. May 2016 be a wonderful year for you all.
I'd like to give you some status update regarding planning for various NVDA events throughout 2016:

* NVDACon: After consulting NV Access and others, it was decided to be held in April 2016. Although we don't know where, we are given an opportunity broadcast at least the keynote session from NV Access staff.
* NVDACon promotions and sponsorships: Currently I've asked American Council of the Blind (ACB) and Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) about helping us promote our event and possibly becoming event sponsors. So far, I have received a word from one of the leaders of ACB asking if for more details and said ACB Radio could stream at least the keynote session of NVDACon. I have also asked our Twitter followers to ask blindness organizations around the world to help promote or become sponsors for our events (at least NVDACon).
* NVDA Planning Committee meeting on January 23, 2016: To give you more details on what's going on and to receive input from members of our committee and from the public, NVDA Tenth Anniversary Planning Committee will hold our planning meeting on January 23rd. To accomodate various time zones, two sessions will be held. Our meeting place will be NVDA Korea TeamTalk server (more details will be announced soon), the same place we had NVDACon 2015.2.

Please continue to stay tuned for more reports and updates. As always, your comments and highly appreciated - you can send them to me at or via Twitter at @joslee. Thanks, and please continue to spread word about our events and help us celebrate an important milestone in NVDA's history.

Joseph S. Lee
Chair, NVDA Tenth Anniversary Planning Committee
PddS. I'll be on vacation until January 9th, thus may not be able to respond to emails quickly. Thanks.
