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:

4:00  Eastern,
3:00  Central,
2:00  Mountain,
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.

Calls for Spring 2016

Thursday, march 17, 2016  Losing Vision and 
Adapting to Life’s Changes moderated by Shelley Copel, South Carolina.

Wednesday, April 13, 2016
Churchgoing­Making Everyone more Comfortable with 
Our Blindness moderated by Tom Anderson, 
president of the national Association of the 
Blind in Communities of Faith, Kansas.

Wednesday, May 11, 2016
How To Solve The Little problems in Your Life 
When Significant Vision Loss occurs moderated by Jan Bailey, Minnesota.

Wednesday, June8,  2016,  Let’s Keep Writing and 

 Publishing and More, moderator, from the Writer’s 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.

Ruth Sager,

NFB Senior Division
