Greetings all,


I hope everyone is getting excited for the National Federation of the Blind Virtual National Convention starting on Tuesday! If you missed rookie roundup or haven’t heard the news, this will officially be the largest national convention ever with 7,251 people registered to attend. 
If you missed Rookie Roundup, the recording can be found on YouTube.

If you are attending convention, it is extremely important that you attend our Oklahoma Affiliate Caucus which will be held on Friday, July 17 and 10:00 A.M. The caucus is a chance for us to all gather together to discuss all the resolutions that will be presented to the membership for voting on Saturday, July 18. We will also be avle to cover other convention related matters that come up and answer any questions you may have. And most importantly, caucus is a time for all of us to spend time together as an affiliate for fellowship and getting to know one another. You can find the Zoom meeting information at the end of this email or in the calendar event attachment.

Other important convention related things you should be aware of:
