Upcoming Events

National Convention 2020

Considering the ongoing impact and wide-ranging effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 National Convention will be held virtually for the first time.

The 2020 National Convention will take place online from Tuesday, July 14 - Saturday, July 18, 2020.

The agenda for the 2020 National Convention will feature most of the elements our members know and love, with some new twists. There will be multiple ways to participate in and interact with all convention events, from video conferencing to phone access. Plus, as local conditions permit, NFB affiliates will organize in-person gatherings in conjunction with sessions being held at the national level to enhance the convention experience.

Recurring Events

The following information is as accurate as it has been provided to us. If there are changes to be made, please let us know.

NFB Open-House Gatherings

Many people do not know the National Federation of the Blind, and they are reluctant to attend a local chapter meeting where they may have their questions
answered. We will be hosting teleconferences for individuals that are curious about the National Federation of the Blind. The teleconference will present
them with an opportunity to receive information from and ask questions of Federationists. We will be able to dispel the myths and misconceptions about
the NFB and highlight the benefits of membership. These calls are specifically intended for individuals who are curious about our organization and would
benefit from learning about us in an educational environment. Chapters and affiliates should share this invitation on their social media and disseminate
it with anyone who may be interested in joining.

The calls will take place on the third Sunday of each even numbered month and the third Wednesday of each odd numbered month. Our first two calls will be Sunday, August 18, at 4:00 p.m. eastern and Wednesday, September 18, at 8:00 p.m. eastern. We would like to keep the list of participants small enough so that it will be impactful. Therefore, in order to participate, individuals will need to RSVP by emailing membership@nfb.org or calling 410-659-9314, extension 2509, and let us know which call date works best for them. Individuals selected to participate will receive the call-in information.
