The theme for Round Table's Annual Conference in 2010 is Think Globally,
Act Locally. The conference will consider:

*	What are we achieving in the global context through
international groups like the International Council on English Braille
<http://www.iceb.org/> , the DAISY Consortium <http://daisy.org/> , the 
International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions
<http://www.ifla.org/en/lpd> and the Global Library initiative
<http://www.daisy.org/projects/global-library/> ? 
*	What local initiatives have been successful in our communities?
How can these be expanded to other regions? 
*	What are the issues and opportunities for the print disability
community in a world where publishing is moving beyond print? 
*	How are service organisations meeting the changing information
access needs of individuals and diverse communities? 
*	How does access to information empower individuals to
participate in society? Where are the biggest gaps in information
access?

The theme will be explored through a mix of speakers, panel discussions
and workshops.
