Greetings Fellow Federationists:

The 76th Annual Convention of the National 
Federation of the Blind is almost here! 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 once again 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.

Our demonstration room will be available for walk-in traffic for five hours on:

Friday July 1, 2016 from 1:00 – 6:00 PM, and
Saturday July 2, 2016 from 1:00 – 6:00 PM

This demonstration room is intended to answer 
questions, distribute materials, demonstrate 
access methods, resolve subscriber issues, and 
sign up new subscribers. There will be several 
workstations set up in the room.

Our tables in the Exhibit Hall will need to be 
staffed for a total of twenty hours starting on the following schedule:

July 1, 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM
July 2, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
July 3, Noon – 1:45 PM; 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
July 4, Noon – 1:45 PM

We will be looking to fill these times in two 
hour increments and we are looking for support 
from our members who are familiar with the NFB-NEWSLINE® service.

Please respond and let us know via e-mail 
(<mailto:talbee at nfb.org>talbee at nfb.org), or by 
calling (410) 659-9314, extension 2354,  if you 
will be able to volunteer during convention. If 
you already have activities scheduled during the 
times listed above, please let us know that as 
well so we can work around your availability.

Thank you in advance for your time and for your volunteer work.

Best regards,

Scott White
Director of Sponsored Technology Programs
National Federation of the Blind
Phone: 410-659-9314 ext. 2231

The National Federation of the Blind knows that 
blindness is not the characteristic that defines 
you or your future. Every day we raise the 
expectations of blind people, because low 
expectations create obstacles between blind 
people and our dreams. You can live the life you 
want; blindness is not what holds you back.
