Convention Registration

Acknowledgement and Verification

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is a community of members and friends who believe in the hopes and dreams of the nation’s blind. Our organization requires a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we are committed to a safe and welcoming environment. As part of that effort, registration for national convention requires that you agree to the code of conduct. The NFB Code of Conduct outlines policies and standards for anyone who participates in Federation activities. Please read our code of conduct at nfb.org/codeofconduct.

For reporting code of conduct violations, you may report in several ways including submitting the Complaint Form referenced in Section 9, filing a report with a state or national leader, emailing [email protected], or by calling 410-659-9314 extension 2475. Reports are reviewed by an external party, and the review process may result in an investigation and consequences to the violator. For support or guidance, NFB’s Survivor-Led Task Force can be reached at [email protected] or extension 2238. We welcome your questions and concerns. We support whatever path an individual may choose to take in healing from harm. Thank you for your commitment to the safety and support of the blind community.

Membership and Voting

One of the most important components of our democratic organization is the voice of its members. One way in which we make our voices heard is by voting—electing our leaders and passing resolutions that guide the organization’s activities. If you are a member of the National Federation of the Blind and have registered for the 2021 National Convention, you are eligible to vote during our general sessions. We have arranged for a voting platform that will allow you to vote via SMS (text message) or by phone. The phone number you enter below must be the number you will use to cast your votes during convention.
