I received this email from an adult self-help agency whose Board I used to chair. I've never been a part of these calls so can't speak first hand to the process, but the information is from a reputable source. It occured to me that some of you might want to try it. My source is in Hawaii, but it looks like this is in fact a mainland number.

We're once again resuming our monthly disability calls.
In order to help keep you more informed, we host these monthly calls to update you on various disability issues as well as to introduce you to persons who work on disability issues in the Federal government.
This call is open to everyone, and we strongly urge and ask that you distribute this email broadly to your networks and listservs so that everyone has the opportunity to learn this valuable information.
If you received this email as a forward but would like to be added to the White House Disability Group email distribution list, please visit our website athttp://www.whitehouse.gov/disability-issues-c... and fill out the contact us form in the disabilities section or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your full name, city, state, and organization.
We will be addressing a number of issues during this next call since we have not had a call recently.
Also, we will begin answering the questions and issues many of you raised through disability.gov. So, dial in to hear if we answer your question or address your issue.
And, we will have some exciting announcements!
I would encourage you to call in about five minutes early due to the large volume of callers.
