NFB Convention—NOPBC Conference Announcement: We’re Going Virtual
For the eightieth year in a row, the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) will host our Annual Convention, but this year, it will be different. Instead of gathering together in a major metropolitan city, we will gather virtually using accessible distance technology. A proud division of the NFB, the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children (NOPBC) will host our Annual National Conference within the NFB Annual Convention—again virtually. Our dates remain the same—July 14 through 18, 2020.
While we will not meet in person, blind individuals of all ages and their families and friends will gather to share insight from the past, information for the present, and ideas for the future. We will share more details soon.
In the meantime, stay safe, and know that we are a family—even and especially when we are miles apart.
From the NFB.org 2020 Convention web page:
"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.
Join us as we celebrate NFB’s eightieth anniversary and expand our circle of participation, connecting blind Americans from coast to coast for what we expect to be the largest gathering of blind people in history."
