At Large Chapter Meeting Minutes for June 19, 2018.


Meeting was started at 8 PM by Margarete Woods, President. 

Approximately 15 members on the call. 

The Guest speaker tonight was Debbie Brown, Vice President of NFB MD and the
President of the Sligo Creek chapter. 

She read an article called Reflection from our members which can be found in
Imagineering Our Future email Newsletter.  This newsletter has been around 5
to 6 years.

Newsline was discussed.  It is an NFB service that allows you to access
newspapers and magazines.

On June 14th NFBMD held a rally to protest not having a secret ballot.

We voted on not having a meeting in July which was approved. 

The topic of Resolutions was discussed.  They are policy statements of the
NFB written by members. They become NFB policies when the convention passes

National Federation of the Blind of Maryland



The National Federation of the Blind of Maryland knows that blindness is not
the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
