Time of Calls:

All calls will be held at the times listed below

4:00Eastern standard time,

2:00  Mountain time,
1:00  Pacific time.

The conference call numbers are as follows for all calls:

Dial 712-432-1500

Access code:

All calls will be recorded and put on the NFB Senior webpage and 
directions for calling back to listen to the call if missed will be 
given a few hours after the calls have taken place. You will also be 
able to go directly to the senior web page and download each session.

In order to obtain the best possible sound for these calls, it is 
recommended that each caller, after dialing in, press star 6 which 
puts you in a "mute" mode.  You will be able to hear everything 
during the call but background noise from your location will not 
disturb others listening in on the conversation.  When you wish to 
speak and enter the discussion, press star 6 once again and you will 
be released from the "mute" mode and able to participate.

It is also highly recommended that each person wishing to speak state 
his or her name and wait for the moderator to recognize you before 
speaking.  We can have too many people trying to seek the floor at 
one time and chaos can occur.  The moderators will do their very best 
to recognize as many callers as possible however, they will determine 
the order in which speakers poceed.

Again, when finished with your comments, press star 6 once again to 
go back into "mute" mode to facilitate better, uncluttered 
communication for everyone.

We are very pleased that you are interested in joining our conference 
call sessions and we welcome your input, participation and we hope 
that you will then share what you learn with others and encourage 
friends and colleagues to join you in participating in these calls 
whether speaking or simply listening. By the way, you do not have to 
be a senior to participate and join in with us. Each call will be 
about one hour in length. Come join us and learn to Live The Life You Want.
