2020 National Federation of the Blind of Illinois State Convention Goes Virtual

The dates for the 2020 state convention of the National Federation of the Blind of Illinois are October 30, 31, and November 1. Considering the ongoing impact and wide-ranging effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will hold the 2020 state convention virtually for the first time.

Join us, as we connect blind people from across Illinois, and renew our dedication in the pursuit of security, equality, and opportunity for all blind people.

Information on how to register, will follow in the next few weeks.

Our convention is open to all. However, to vote in our 2020 elections, our constitution requires that your membership dues be current. The easiest way to join or pay membership dues it to fill out our Membership Form and pay dues either by following the link to PayPal or by sending money via Zelle to pchang@nfb.org. We look forward to your participation in our upcoming state convention.

We are proud to announce that Pam Allen, president of the National Federation of the Blind of Louisiana, 1st vice president and chair of the board of the National Federation of the Blind, and executive director of the Louisiana Center for the Blind, will be serving as our national rep this year. Pam’s bio can be found at www.nfb.org/about-us/leadership/board-directors/pam-allen.
