Fellow Federationists,

The National Federation of the Blind is a strong, dynamic, 
organization like no other in the world. The Federation stays fresh 
and vibrant because we continue to take full ownership of our 
organization and bring new elements into our programs that keep us on 
the cutting edge. In advance of our 75th anniversary (2015) and with 
the tenth anniversary of our Jernigan Institute coming up (2014), we 
will be conducting some focus groups at the convention to gather data 
about the organization and its branding. The focus groups will 
explore a few questions about the NFB brand, key characteristics of 
the organization, and the elements that keep you engaged in 
Federation programs. Please consider volunteering an hour of your 
time to discuss a few questions about the Federation from your perspective.

We are planning five separate focus group times. You can only 
participate in one of the sessions but you should indicate all of the 
sessions you would be available to attend as we will select 
participants in order to get a cross section for each session.

The available focus group times are:
Group 1: Monday, July 1, 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Group 2: Monday, July 1, 2:00-3:00 p.m.
Group 3: Monday, July 1, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Group 4: Wednesday, July 3, 1:45-2:45 p.m.
Group 5: Wednesday, July 3, 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Please send an e-mail to Mika Baugh 
<<mailto:mikabaugh at yahoo.com>mikabaugh at yahoo.com> noting the time 
slots you would be available to attend. Please also provide a mobile 
phone number that we can use to confirm your participation with you 
during the convention. Finally, include your state affiliate in the 
message so we can get a wide range of geographic representation.

Thank you for your work to build the National Federation of the Blind!

Mark Riccobono

P.S. Share this message widely with Federationists planning to be at
