The Braille Authority of North America (BANA), which meets face-to-face semiannually, will hold its 2020 spring meeting March 19-21 in Baltimore, MD. This meeting will be hosted by the National Federation of the Blind (NFB), which is a BANA member organization. The meetings will take place at the NFB Jernigan Institute, which is located at 200 E Wells Street, Baltimore, MD 21230.

Items on the Board's agenda include progress reports of BANA's numerous ongoing projects. The Board will review formal reports from all of BANA's technical, general, and special committees such as those focusing on tactile graphics, braille formats, Nemeth, and publications.
