President's Message Diane Pevsner The CEC annual convention provides its members with the opportunity to catch up with old friends, make new friends and to learn from one another. The convention offers DVI members the opportunity to become familiar with the latest research in visual impairments, update teaching strategies, and celebrate the award winners in our profession. It is a time of excitement, renewal, and goal setting for the upcoming year. Much of the discussion at this years convention centered around DVI's history and the interest in students who are deafblind, and the professionals who serve them. This interest has been demonstrated through position papers, training programs, and the development and acceptance of knowledge and skills competencies for professionals and paraprofessionals that serve students who are deafblind. To incorporate deafblindness in our name seems to be a natural move. Please join me in welcoming the professional, paraprofessionals, and family members of individuals who are deaf blind to our organization. 9
