To view the video stream, please go to http://www.vfpnationalconvention.org/livestream.htm which will contain the entire schedule and the embedded video.  If instead you go to
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/vfp-national-convention-2010 then you will be able to register and chat with other viewers.  Either one will work.  All sessions will be archived for future viewing.

You should have an updated version of Flash to see the video stream - the convention link above has directions on how to get that.  The biggest reasons for people having a problem with the video stream will be a slow internet connection or an outdated Flash plugin.

Please forward this on widely to your chapter email lists, other relevant email lists, and friends.

If you cannot make it to the convention we hope to see you online on August 26.  I will send a few reminders about this in the next few weeks.
