Greetings Fellow Federationists:
The 76th Annual Convention of the National
Federation of the Blind is almost here! Before
everyones 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.

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.
