VIDBE-Q Volume 62 Issue 2 I am thrilled to share with you the Spring 2017, Convention Issue of the Visual Impairments and Deafblind Education Quarterly journal. This issue is a favorite of mine each year. I always enjoy remembering the fun we had at convention and sharing what our amazing members in DVIDB are doing to further the field of visual impairments and deafblindness. This issue begins with articles highlighting this year's award winners in the field of VI and DB. I was honored to be the recipient of the Dissertation of the Year award, and humbled by the many accomplishments of the other award winners featured in this issue. The DVIDB Social was a lovely event that could not have been possible without the tireless work of board member, Nicole Johnson, and our fabulous sponsors and members. The cover is a picture of the beautiful cakes donated for the event by APH. The next 3 articles are summaries of a few of this year's presentations from Convention. First, you will learn more about professional development delivery from the past and into the present for those working with students that are blind, deafblind, visually impaired, and have multiple disabilities.
