Hello I am a student from Monticello High School, Charlottesville Virginia. I am involved in a group project for government that has to due with Social Security and i was wondering if this meeting would be open to the public tomorrow?

Usually these meetings are open to the public, although space is sometimes limited. I would go to the Advisory Board's website ( and search on the meeting; I think they'll have information there for people interested in attending.
