Dear Federationists,


I'm honored and humbled to serve as your next President of the National
Federation of the Blind of California.  I appreciate your support and
confidence in my vision for the affiliate.  I'm spending the next few weeks
learning the ropes.  I want to better understand how we operate before we
start considering new initiatives.  Much needs to be done as we transfer to
the new administration.  I appreciate your patience as we put our email,
phone line and other administrative items in place.  Don't hesitate to send
me your thoughts and concerns.  Specifically, we are going to be looking
closely at convention 2019, what we can do to improve upon our current work
and where we ought to convene next year.


In Service,

Tim Elder, President, National Federation of the Blind of California
