General Business Meeting

Announcements went out over the mailing list for Saturday’s membership meeting, which will be a general business meeting, with a Board meeting immediately after. Both meetings are hybrid, with the live meeting taking place in White Plains and the virtual meeting on Zoom. Contact the president at if you need information on attending.

Coming Soon: Mentorship

The WCBNY Board of Directors voted last week to create a task force to get a mentorship program up and running for new members. You can read all about it here, including learning how you can get involved.

Safe Crossing

We recently gathered live again for a presentation on the AYES OKO app for iPhones. This remarkable implementation of AI, using the phone’s camera, opens up a lot of possibilities for the blind and visually-impaired to navigate city streets safer than ever before. It is capable of turning a regular pedestrian signal into an accessible signal at no cost to the end user. Read more about the app and our May meeting here.
