Hello NFB Family and Friends,


The NFB is for everyone, blind and sighted alike.  Please register for our Virginia State Convention and see what I mean!


This message outlines many events and meetings planned for the month.  Almost all chapter and division meetings are using the Virginia Affiliate’s Zoom account and all meetings are open to the public.

All calls are available using the telephone dial in option or through the free and totally accessible Zoom app on Windows, Apple IOS, or Google Android. You can also access just using your Web Browser. 


Click on the zoom link to be automatically entered into the meeting.  The one tap mobile does have a bit of a delay, approximately 20 seconds from start to you being put into the meeting. You do not have to enter, push or do anything except be patient and wait.   When using a landline or older cell phone, you do have to type in the meeting ID, which is provided.  It’s that simple, no stressing.

For all these services, it is important to be on mute when you are not speaking.  The presenter will provide specific instructions at the beginning of the meeting, but in general, star 6 mutes and unmutes from a phone, ALT + A (like Alpha) mutes and unmutes on a computer and smartphones and tablets have a mute button on the meeting control toolbar.   Additionally, just like in-person Federation meetings, please preface your comments by stating your name and being recognized by the organizer before speaking.
