Good Morning Federation Family:

I've got a few things to cover this morning. First, just a reminder about
tomorrow's affiliate caucus starting at 1015 AM central time. The invite
will be below for your convenience. If you have any questions about
connecting to that, please let me know. We'll have a lot of ground to cover
in our time together, so please be on time!

Second, resolutions are posted! You can find them at


and also on NFB newsline. I encourage everyone to look at them as we will be
looking at them tomorrow to see if there are any problematic ones I should
be aware of before voting begins on Saturday! We will not have time to go
through everything as there are 29 of them under consideration, so please do
a bit of homework!

There are some updated Zoom links and ID's for the general sessions for
Friday an Saturday. If you copied them down before yesterday morning's
updates, please revisit them to get the correct ones. The ones for Friday
are good for both sessions, and the ones for Saturday cover all of the
general sessions and banquet. Please let me know if there are any questions

Finally, I have been made aware of a couple of problems regarding the voting
platform that's being used, particularly with regards to text confirmations
and voting by phone We are looking into the issues and do have a backup
voting plan in place. Please let me know if there are issues during
tonight's general session should a vote come up, and I know there will be at
least one opportunity.

Speaking of tonight, please join the general session starting at 6:00 PM
central! This will have many of the familiar elements, including the
celebration of freedom, and of course the roll call of states! Hope to see
you there! Please let me know if there are any questions or issues along the
way. Now for the caucus reminder!
