Besides that, I went to the AAPD board meeting earlier this week, which was hosted at a Verizon Wireless corporate office. It was a great experience and it gave me perspective as to what a board meeting is like. I have ambitions for eventually joining a board for either my church or my or the local chapter of the Autism Society of America or both and this experience definitely reinforced those ambitions.
In addition I gained a contact at Verizon, Mary Crespy, AAPD's disability point of contact at Verizon. She agreed to try to get me a preview of the Motorola Droid X, which has not yet been released. I am very excited to be able to meet someone from Verizon as well as get an exclusive preview. I hope that this opportunity allows me to build a professional relationship with persons at Verizon.
Good week, looking forward to next week.
