Though APH serves many important functions in the VI community, it is very clear that it is beginning to lack cohesive in-house leadership and a proactive direction. The organization could utilize technological advances more effectively with more direct emphasis on modernization of outmoded items.

Traveling to APH is a step back in time. While this could be seen as a positive for some businesses, in one that should be current with cutting edge developments, it is not a compliment. Equipment appears worn and antique. Staff diversity is lacking and in positions of strategic import and authority, this is all but invisible.

I have donated to the American Printing House for the Blind, Inc. for 30 years in some capacity or another. I will continue to do so but will be more apt to make larger donations should the Board of Trustees take a closer look at moving the organization a few leaps into the future.
