|A Note from Bureau Director Edward F. Rodgers II
As the first Director of the new Bureau of Services for Blind Persons, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our web page.
The Bureau of Services for Blind Persons was established by Executive Order 2012-10, issued by Governor Rick Snyder on June 27, 2012. This executive order established the Commission for Blind Persons, indicating the responsibilities for this advisory commission. The executive order took effect on October 1, 2012.
Let me reassure our consumers that there will be no interruption or discontinuation of the current level of quality services that you have come to expect. Governor Snyder's executive order makes it clear that my responsibility as director is to work with other agencies and commissions in order to provide the best services to our clients.
I look forward to meeting with individual clients, consumer groups, other partners, and citizens as we work together to ensure that Michigan's visually impaired and blind individuals have the resources and opportunities they need to achieve active employability and independence.
