Save the date! – On October 14 2017 Tele town hall

On October 14 2017, the tele town hall organizing committee will b
continuing its series of town hall meetings as it hosts the third in a
series of its tele town hall meetings and this time our meeting will have a
very international flavor.
For the next few town halls we will be introducing speakers to you from such
places as New Zealand, Australia, Europe, North America, and the Caribbean.
Time: 1:00 pm Eastern
10:00 am Pacific
11:00 am Mountain
Noon Central
2:00 pm Atlantic
2:30 in Newfoundland

This town hall meeting is being jointly sponsored by the following:
The tele town hall organizing committee
(Donna Jodhan, Robin East, Anthony Tibbs, Albert Ruel, Pat Seed, Louise
Gillis, Paul Edwards, Jane Blaine, Melanie Marsden, Kim Kilpatrick, and Leo
Bissonnette).
Organizations –
Canadian Council of the Blind (CCB),
Getting together with technology (GTT),
Citizens with Disabilities of Ontario (CWDO).

The objective of this tele town hall is to give participants an opportunity
to hear how consumer advocacy is carried out in New Zealand and Austrailia
and to give them a chance to ask questions of our guest speakers.
Subsequent tele town hall meetings will be similar in format to this one.

It is our hope that participants will be able to use the information
presented to consider a possible platform for the development of our own
made in Canada advocacy initiative.

This tele town hall is not meant to be used as any sort of  decision making
mechanism but rather as an open forum for constructive discussion.

If you wish to participate then you may send an email to us at
teletownhall1@gmail.com You will receive an email confirming your
registration.
During the week of Oct 09 you will receive an email with details of the call
in info along with the rules of engagement.

We will be posting additional announcements in the coming days.
We look forward to hearing from you.
