Greetings fellow Federationists:

The 72nd annual national convention of the 
National Federation of the Blind is rapidly 
approaching, so before everyone’s schedule is 
entirely packed, I wanted to write to you to ask 
for your assistance.  The NFB-NEWSLINE team will 
be hosting a demonstration room and a table in 
the Exhibit Hall this year.  Both of these 
activities will require a number of volunteers 
and we would greatly appreciate any time that you 
could offer to help with our convention activities.

We have recently launched new service features, 
and we want to give convention attendees an 
opportunity to become familiar with these 
additions so that 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 Global Publication 
Search feature and the NFB-NEWSLINE Mobile 
application for the iPhone (our newest access method, coming soon).

Our demonstration room will be available for 13 
hours of walk-in traffic and our tables in the 
Exhibit Hall will need to be staffed for 23 
hours, so we need plenty of 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 ways­by 
providing information, handing out literature, 
and helping sign up new 
subscribers.  Additionally, we need volunteers to 
staff our room’s four workstations to help 
convention attendees learn about recent service 
additions.  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.

Please send an e-mail indicating your interest in 
volunteering during convention to my assistant, 
Wanda Briggs.  Wanda can be reached via e-mail at 
<mailto:wbriggs at nfb.org>wbriggs at nfb.org or by 
calling (410) 659-9314, extension 2238.

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

Scott White
