VIDBE-Q Volume 66 Issue 3 Impairment and Deafblindness (DVIDB) executive board has been brainstorming ways to grow our organization and engage members. We are planning a slate of webinars through the fall and have already begun planning for the 2022 CEC convention/pre-convention. In June, DVIDB awarded their first ever Research and Practice Grant to Erik Fundelius. Erika's proposal was chosen through a thorough blind review process. Erika is doctoral student at Florida State University in the Visual Disabilities Program and is planning on using the grant to aid in her research in the vision field. Read more about Erika's work in this issue of the Visual Impairment and Deafblind Education Quarterly journal. DVIDB is hoping to continue this grant yearly and we encourage any teachers, students, or practitioners in the field to apply for the award. The CEC 2022 Convention & Expo will be held in Orlando, Florida January 16 th -19 th . We are very excited that attendees will be able to attend in person or virtually. Our board is currently reviewing many proposals and planning a wonderful program. I encourage you to mark your calendars for the 2022 convention and consider joining us in the sunshine state. I hope this issue will help you plan for the upcoming school year. Enjoy the rest of summer and enjoy some well-deserved relaxation!
