VIDBE-Q Volume 66, Issue 2 9 with you over the next two years. Thank you to our returning board members for all of your time and dedication to our division. Although we are not face to face, a lot has been going on throughout our division. The DVIDB website committee led by Dr. Mackenzie Saviano worked hard to get our newly revamped website up and running. Please take time to look at the website to keep up to date on upcoming webinars, position papers, and opportunities within our division at https://dvidb.exceptionalchildren.org/. The convention was much different this year, but we had a good turnout for our division. Over 65 people attended the DVIDB pre-convention led by Dr. Penny Rosenblum, Monique Coleman, Dr. Amy Parker, and Linda Hagood. This was a wonderful event with a lot of useful information. Thank you to Allied Instructional Services and American Printing House for the Blind for your sponsorship of this event. DVIDB was lucky to have over 25 presentations during the convention. As I was navigating all of these sessions, I was blown away by the enthusiasm of the presenters and all of the amazing work going on in the field of visual impairments. All of the sessions will be available on demand until June 1 st . Thank you to all of the presenters in sharing your work with the field. Although we could not celebrate in person, DVIDB was able to host a virtual awards ceremony to honor and celebrate the contribution of award winners. All of our award winners have done so much for the field and were well deserved. Winners included Dr. Nora Griffin
