Dear Fellow Federationists:


The Communications Team at the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute cordially invites conventioneers to our Q&A and work session planned for Thursday, July 5. It will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 in Suwannee 13, Level 2, at the convention hotel. Each affiliate should consider sending someone to this event. You may already have a person designated to handle affiliate communications; if not, this is a good opportunity to designate someone and send them to a relaxed, informal gathering to help them hit the ground running!


This is an opportunity for you to meet, interact, and work directly with the staff Communications Team and your fellow communications leaders throughout the organization, and to discuss ways to enhance communications of all kinds. We’ll discuss branding, public relations, messaging, marketing materials, emails, logos, social media, and more. Feel free to bring not only your questions, but also your own ideas. It is all our efforts that make the message of the National Federation of the Blind a powerful force for changing the lives of blind people everywhere. 


We will also be able to provide you with direct assistance in updating your affiliate’s social media accounts and website, so bring your laptop and/or mobile device if you have one, along with your social media or website credentials, as appropriate.


Again, this is an informal work session, so feel free to come for the whole thing or just drop by for a few minutes depending on your schedule. We know how busy convention is! 


If you have questions you want us to be sure and address specifically to meet your needs, please send them to communicationsteam at nfb.org. 


We look forward to seeing you on July 5 in Orlando!
