Dedicated to promoting and supporting the O&M and GDMI professions
Who we are…
We are Orientation and Mobility (O&M) Specialists, Guide Dog Mobility Instructors (GDMI), and students/apprentices whose purpose is to develop and implement a strategy to support O&M/GDMI professionals and the people they serve and ensure the future success of the O&M/GDMI profession.
Some background information about this effort is on our Archives Page.
Developed through an on-line, professionally-facilitated planning process involving O&M and GDMI professionals, consumers and employers,
the O&M/GDMI Strategic Plan is posted at O&M/GDMI Strategy Summit.
What is next?
We are pleased that we helped stimulate a national conversation which has the potential to continue our efforts and lead to the changes which we know are necessary.
Leaders and professionals in our field are beginning to look at how to improve and expand our service delivery, including health insurance billing, and we are excited about some of these initiatives:

We hope that you will become engaged in these efforts, providing input in decisions and helping to achieve the goals of our Strategic Plan!
