from Cheryl Godley, PhD
We had a successful 2023. Here are a few of the highlights: we increased our membership, awarded a $1,000.00 scholarship to a Wyoming college student with B/VI, had a successful fundraiser at our Thankful Thursday event in Casper, acquired new board members, had an informative convention, and made significant improvements to our website. We have also created “WyCB Roundup,” a monthly conference call that anyone can join to discuss B/VI issues or just to get to know each other in our community of B/VI individuals.
For 2024, we are looking to further increase our membership, further improve our website to provide more information on resources for the B/VI community, and offer a $1,000.00 scholarship for a college or trade school student with B/VI. As always, we will continue to advocate on behalf of issues in Wyoming related to B/VI as necessary, and will educate others (agencies, organizations, and individuals) about who we are and what we do. Another of our goals for this year is to seek financial support through fund raisers, donations, and potentially, grants. This would allow us to create a stronger voice for the B/VI to continue in Wyoming.
With your help we will achieve these goals and more. Here’s to a successful and productive year for WyCB in 2024!
