UPCOMING CONFERENCE CALLS
SPONSORED BY THE SENIOR DIVISION OF THE
NATIONAL FEDERATION OF THE BLIND
Once again the Senior Division of the NFB is
proud to sponsor four upcoming conference calls
on a variety of topics with moderators presiding
over each call. We hope these calls provide
information and thoughtful discussions in your
local chapter and other senior meetings throughout the year.
If you have not yet been to a national convention
of the NFB, we hope you will reconsider and come
and join us as we meet in Orlando, Florida for
our annual Division meeting Saturday July 2,
2016. Time and place to be announced in the agenda.
The numbers to dial are the same:
712-432-1500 with access code:
759633pound. You will then be asked if this is
correct as you hear the access code repeated that
you just dialed. You are prompted to press
(1) if the code is correct. You then announce
yourself by stating yor name, and, you are entered into the conference call.
The time for the calls remains the same as well:
1:00 Pacific time.
I understand, in the past, we have had people
join us from other time zones such as Hawaii. We
are delighted that you have joined the call and
hope you will continue to do so. Please
determine for yourself the time to enter the call
if you live in another time zone other than those listed above.
the call if missed, can be listened to again with
a playback number which will be given a few
hours after the calls have taken place. The main
playback number is: 712-432-1202. You will then
be asked to choose from a menu of numbers from 1
to about 13 up to 17 as each call is put on the
list in sequence of dates in which the conference call took place.

Wednesday, June8, 2016, Lets Keep Writing and
Publishing and More, moderator, from the Writers Division of the NFB.
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. If using your speaker on your phone,
you can also put the star 6 mute mode and
listen just the same. However, in the past, we
have heard people moving about their home with
their speaker on. So, please, please use the
star 6 mute mode so you and everyone else can hear more clearly.
Please share this information with your friends
and especially newcomers to the federation
family. I look forward to hearing and speaking
with many of you in the next several weeks.
