Dear Fellow Federationists:

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is inaugurating a series 
of Twitter chats to enhance our social media presence and engage our 
members and supporters. The first of these Twitter chats is set for 
September 10 at 8 p.m. EDT and will focus on our 75 Days of Action 
campaign, which officially kicked off on September 2. It is entitled 
"Why Join the National Federation of the Blind? A Conversation with 
President Riccobono." Jeannie Massay, co-chairperson of the NFB's 75 
Days of Action steering committee, will moderate this Twitter chat, 
which is an opportunity for members to ask questions about the 
importance of joining the NFB and how to recruit new members, as well 
as to share our stories of why we all joined the organized blind 
movement. You can submit questions for President Riccobono and the 
other chat participants in advance, or participate during the live 
event next Wednesday, by using the hashtag #blindchat. President 
Riccobono hopes that you will all join him for what is sure to be a 
lively and informative discussion. And be sure to invite friends or 
family members who are curious about the National Federation of the 
Blind or are considering joining the organization.

informative blog post from Tony Olivero explaining the concept:
