We are excited to start the new year with a chapter meeting and lots of hope
and optimism for the coming year!

You all saw that we are meeting via Zoom this particular month. While we are
all ready to meet in person, the board met this past week and decided that
since a few of the board members either recently had or currently have Covid
in some way, it would be better to meet virtually one more month. If all
goes well, we will definitely meet in person next month! We are more than
ready, but we just wanted to be safe and keep everyone in mind.

We will have a few things to discuss, including the following.

*	Group Activity/Ice Breaker
*	Discuss or approve minutes
*	State of the State Affiliate and National News to Know, dealing with
upcoming Washington Seminar and National Convention, Marci Carpenter,
Affiliate President
*	Legal issues, Al Elia
*	Announcements on statewide meetings, such as students and seniors
*	Elections for this year's board
*	Thoughts and plans for this coming year


Because we are not meeting in person, we won't be able to collect dues.
However, rather than moving elections till February, let's all try and get
our payments in using PayPal. This way, we can move forward and as planned.

Dues are $5 and can be paid either by PayPal or check. The PayPal address is
payments at nfbw.org <mailto:payments at nfbw.org> ,

If you have any questions, send an email to chapter president Jim Portillo

n <mailto:nnfbseattle at gmail.com> nfbseattle at gmail.com.

You can also call the Seattle Chapter phone number and leave a message.
Someone will get back to you as soon as possible. The number is

See all of you on Saturday!
