My name is Julie and I’m the
president of the Foundation’s Minneapolis/Northern Lights Chapter. On behalf of
the Foundation, I want to personally invite you to the 2012 VISIONS Conference,
being held June 28-July 1 in our own beautiful city of Minneapolis!
As someone who’s attended many
VISIONS Conferences, I can tell you that it’s an experience like no other.
Everyone there shares a common goal and a great energy that stays with you
after you leave. I can’t wait to get back to VISIONS for more!
It’s my pleasure to share with you
this VISIONS 2012 Special Edition of InFocus Online, and give you a
sneak peek at this year’s conference. I hope you get as excited about this news
as I did. And I hope you decide to make the trip to VISIONS 2012 for what’s
sure to be the best conference yet!
President, Minneapolis/Northern Lights Chapter

What’s New for VISIONS 2012
The national conference promises more sessions than
ever before, including a host of brand new presentations that will appeal to
first-time and returning attendees alike.
The Ultimate Adventure
Erik Weihenmayer, a blind man who’s reached the top
of Mount Everest and the rest of the Seven Summits, will share his stories at
VISIONS 2012 and explain why it’s best to embrace, not shun, adversity.
Genetics — the Key to Unlocking Vision-Saving Cures
Karmen Trzupek, a
highly-regarded genetic counselor, will join forces with renowned geneticist
Dr. Stephen Daiger, to share the ins and outs of genetic testing and what it
can mean for families battling inherited eye diseases.
Throwing Them Off-Guard
Most of Bobbi Moore’s career was spent showing people how to improve their appearances. But for the past 10 years, the Florida resident, who will present at VISIONS 2012, has been teaching crime prevention and personal safety.
