The National Federation of the Blind of New Jersey (NFBNJ) is hosting town hall conference calls on a variety of topics with moderators presiding over each call. We hope these calls provide information and thoughtful discussions in your local chapter meetings throughout the year. These meetings will be conducted on the Zoom platform.
Please note that the times for the meetings are in Eastern Time. Members and non-members, and those residing outside of New Jersey are welcome to attend. Details on how to participate in the meetings and how to submit questions in advance can be found further on this page.
Because our conference calls contain information that’s helpful and interesting to all, we archive all of them within hours of their completion. We hope you enjoy and learn from them.
