Howdy Fellow Federationists,

The 2017 Washington Seminar is less than two weeks away! As we prepare to take the hill by storm, we wanted to share the following social media tips and tricks our Communications Team has developed to maximize our impact and messaging prior to, and during our time in Washington DC.


*        Washington Seminar: #NFBWS17

*        Marrakesh Treaty: #MarrakeshTreaty

*        AIM HE Act: #dontdenyaimhigh

*        NLS Appropriation for the Purchase of Refreshable Braille Devices: #NLSBRL

*        The Access Technology Affordability Act: #ATAA

What to Tweet

*        Thank you messages to members of Congress after meetings

o   Example: Thank you, @RepCummings, for meeting with the @NFBMD this afternoon #NFBWS17 (photo: Rep. Cummings, Sharon Maneki, Gabe Cazares smiling)

*        Photos of the group smiling after your meeting

*        Positive messages about the issues being discussed

o   Example: Excited about discussing #MarrakeshTreaty & the importance of removing barriers to access of published works w/ @ChrisVanHollen #NFBWS17

What else to do

*        Send to Melissa Kroeger, mkroeger at nfb.org, any photos and videos you'd like to share. Please note that your photos and videos may be reposted on NFB social media accounts.
If you have any questions, please contact Melissa via email or by calling the national center; her extension is 2207.

Looking forward to building the Federation alongside all of you at #NFBWS17!
