The National Federation of the Blind of Cleveland is extending a cordial invitation to all Federationists to participate in a New Member Orientation Teleconference Call that will take place on May 14, 2018 at 5:00 to 6:30 PM.

This exciting and educational event is to highlight and promote the mission of the National Federation of the Blind. "Thus, to achieve widespread emotional acceptance and intellectual understanding that the real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the misconceptions and lack of information which exist. Moreover, The NFB brings blind people together to share successes, to support each other in times of failure, and to create imaginative solutions. Becoming a member of the National Federation of the Blind is easy to do! Membership in the NFB is rewarding because it opens up a network of unparalleled support, friendship, and resources. Together with love, hope, and determination, we help you transform your dreams into reality".

With all that said, if you are a new member or maybe seasoned and would like to tap into the experiences, expertise and knowledge from a distinguish panel of NFB leaders, then attend this teleconference. We will hear from John Pare, Executive director for Advocacy and Policy, Lou Ann Blake, Deputy Director of The Jernigan Institute, Ron Brown, Second Vice President of The National Board of Directors, Richard Payne, President of the Ohio Affiliate, Barbara Pierce, President Emerita of Ohio, Cheryl Fields, Ohio Board of directors and Dr. carolyn Peters, Ohio Membership Chairperson.

Although, this Teleconference is targeted for Ohio. We encourage anyone who would like to attend to do so. There will be much to learn from the National and State officials. The information is universal and can be poured into the overall membership.  If you have new members in your Affiliate, please encourage them to participate.

The conference number is:
