Greetings fellow Federationists:

As you are surely aware, the NFB’s 2011 National 
Convention is rapidly approaching, and so before 
everyone’s schedule is entirely packed I wanted 
to write to you to ask for your 
assistance.  Because we have recently launched 
new service access methods and features, we 
wanted to seize this occasion to afford 
convention attendees with an opportunity to 
become familiar with these additions so they can 
make the most of them.  To aid us in this effort, 
in addition to our two tables at the exhibit 
hall, the NFB-NEWSLINE® team has arranged for a 
demonstration room that will allow for hands-on 
demonstrations of our recent service 
enhancements, such as the NFB-NEWSLINE® NLS 
Digital Talking Book Downloader and our Job 
Listings feature.  Convention-goers can also come 
to our demonstration room to get help with other 
access methods and service features and to get 
other NFB-NEWSLINE® help.  Because we really want 
to have an impact in promoting our service and 
its exciting features to convention attendees, we 
are in great need of a great many pair of hands to help us out.

Our demonstration room will be available for 10 
hours of walk-in traffic and our tables in the 
exhibit hall will need to be staffed for 23 
hours, so we have plenty of need for help!  We 
are looking for support from our members who are 
familiar with the NFB-NEWSLINE® service; our 
volunteers will be asked to assist visitors in 
many ways; by providing information, handing out 
literature and helping sign up new 
subscribers.  Additionally, we need volunteers to 
staff our room’s four workstations so as to help 
convention attendees learn about our new service 
additions, especially the NFB-NEWSLINE® NLS DTB 
Downloader and our new job-listings feature.  We 
will provide those interested in volunteering 
with information on these new service initiatives 
before convention via a conference call so that everyone is up to speed.

I would very much appreciate it if you would take 
some time during the convention to assist us in 
promoting and demonstrating the service to 
convention attendees.  Please also ask others in 
your affiliate who you know use NFB-NEWSLINE® to 
volunteer their time as well   In return, you'll 
provide a valuable service and receive prodigious thanks!

Please send me an e-mail indicating your interest 
in volunteering during convention.  My e-mail 
address is <mailto:rwest at nfb.org>rwest at nfb.org 
and my inbox can accept a lot of entries!

If you have questions, you may also reach me by 
phone at (410) 659-9314, extension 2411.

Thank you for your time and for your attention to this matter.

Renee West, Marketing and Outreach Manager
