Nanaimo Get Together with Technology Program

When: Saturday, March 14, 2015

Time: 1:30 until 3:30 PM


Please share this invitation widely to anyone you think will benefit from our collective knowledge.

The Nanaimo GTT Group usually meets on the first Saturday of each month, however for March we will move it due to Albert’s inability to attend then.

The main task of the group is to dream up the focus we want to have during the upcoming meetings, and to set into motion the task of establishing the Nanaimo GTT Chapter of the Canadian Council of the Blind. Bring us your ideas, needs, desires and opportunities to share with the group.

The second hour will be devoted to general discussion about assistive technology as it pertains to its use by people who are blind or partially sighted. Bring along that gadget you’re having trouble with and we’ll set you up with someone who can help you sort through the difficulties you’re having.

To RSVP, please call Albert Ruel at 250-240-2343 email at, or Donna Hudon at 250-618-0010 email at

The Get Together with Technology (GTT) program is an exciting program which helps people who are blind or have low vision to explore low vision and blindness related access technology. You can learn from and discuss assistive technology with others walking the same path of discovery.

The group is made up of blindness related assistive technology users, and those who have an interest in using assistive technology designed to help blind and vision impaired people level the playing field. The GTT group meets monthly to share their passions for assistive technology and to learn what others can offer from their individual perspectives.
