2022 Convention

National Federation of the Blind of Ohio 76th Annual Convention, November 4th-6th, 2022

Millennium: Honoring The Past, Treasuring The Present, Shaping The Future
Richard Payne, President

I have met with countless hotels in Cincinnati, Columbus, Toledo and Cleveland. However, the Doubletree by Hilton in Independence Ohio was the top choice. They have the amenities and space to hold the 76th Annual State of Ohio Convention.

Subsequently, the National Federation of the Blind of Ohio provides encouragement and motivation to families with blind children and to people who are losing vision or have become blind later in life. The Convention will be an opportunity for participants to learn about accessible technology from our Technology Fair, tips on living with blindness by attending educational seminars and more.

The 2022 Annual Convention of the National Federation of the Blind of Ohio (NFBOH) will be the largest gathering of blind people in the state. I encourage you to begin making preparations to be there the weekend of November 4th, 5th and 6th of 2022.  Our 76th Convention will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 6200 Quarry Ln., Independence, Ohio 44131, (216) 447-1300. Hotel features include: Free parking, Free WiFi, Non-smoking rooms, On-site restaurant, Indoor and outdoor pools, Fitness center and Business center. Reserve your room for $104 per night Plus tax.

Hilton CleanStay

Hilton has taken additional measures beyond industry-leading cleaning standards by partnering with Reckitt, maker of Lysol & Dettol, to develop their Hilton CleanStay program. This innovative program builds upon their already rigorous cleaning standards by providing enhanced training for Team Members, increased cleaning of public areas and adjusted food & beverage service, to ensure guests enjoy a worry-free stay.
