- Demonstrations: Explanation and exhibitions of how blind people can function effectively using guide dogs, Braille, and new computer technologies.
- Discussion: Elicit audience participation on how business or civic leaders can help remove obstacles to the blind with regard to education, employment, and social assimilation.
