Dear Fellow Federationists:

  The 2018 national convention is at hand, and everyone is eagerly 
anticipating the week of excitement and inspiration which lies ahead. 
Though we would love to see every member of our Federation family in 
Orlando, we recognize that not everyone will be able to join us in 
person. That's why we at 195 The Globe are proud to present the 
online stream of this year's convention, together with exclusive 
coverage you'll only hear on our station! As part of this coverage, 
we're giving you an opportunity not just to listen, but to 
participate in convention with us on air. Here's how you can listen 
to the stream and interact with the team:

 > Tune In: 195 The Globe offers a myriad of ways to listen to our 
convention coverage. Of course, you can access the stream in either 
your favorite media player or your Web browser by visiting 
195theglobe.com and clicking on our "Listen" page. But you can also 
listen on virtually all devices you have! If you would like to listen 
on your smartphone or tablet, download the free TuneIn Radio app from 
the iOS App Store or the Google Play store, then search for 195 The 
Globe. If you want to enjoy convention with Alexa, you need only say, 
"Alexa, play 195 The Globe on TuneIn." On a Google Home, just replace 
"Alexa" with "Hey Google". If you have a notetaker or a Digital 
Talking Book player such as the Victor Reader Stream with ooTunes 
functionality, search for 195 The Globe and the stream will play. You 
can even listen with your touch-tone phone and on NFB-Newsline! Need 
more information, including our streaming schedule? It's all here: 
https://nfb.org/convention/2018/stream. Be sure to join us for the 
Pre-session Coverage listed in the streaming schedule, as we'll be 
airing interviews with various Federation leaders who play an 
important part in making convention possible, including some whose 
voices you might not have heard before!

 > Tweet In: Here at The Globe, we believe that if we want to give 
you the coverage you deserve, we must be actively engaging with you 
on social media. For that reason, we will be active on our Twitter 
throughout the week, highlighting our broadcasts, tweeting about 
special moments on the convention floor, and taking your feedback. We 
invite you to follow us on Twitter at @195_theglobe, and to monitor 
the hashtags #NFB18 and #GlobeOnAir. We will use both hashtags 
frequently to tweet about what we're up to in Orlando, including 
information about our special on-air coverage. If you want to give us 
some feedback or just say hi, feel free to mention @195_theglobe in a 
tweet and we just might read it on-air!

 > Call In: We're excited to partner with the Nation's Blind Podcast 
to give you an opportunity to share your convention memories, stories 
and feedback in a voicemail! Just call the podcast's feedback line at 
(410) 659-9314, extension 2444. Leave your message in the voicemail 
box, and you might hear your message on-air. Hosting a banquet 
listening party? Invite us in virtually! Heard something which struck 
a chord with you? Tell us about it! Have a special convention memory 
or magic moment? Share your story! Whether it's before or during 
convention, leave us your voicemail and let us hear from you.
  Whether you're in Orlando or participating online, we hope you'll 
check out what The Globe has to offer and participate in our coverage 
on the phone or on social media. If you have any questions about The 
Globe's convention coverage or would like to give us some feedback, 
please email Chris Nusbaum at cnusbaum at 195theglobe.com. We look 
forward to playing a part in making this convention memorable!
