Re:  Volunteer workers
Where: NFB Convention, Orlando  FL
When:  Wednesday, July 12th
Times:  9 am through 8:30 pm (prefer 2 hour time shifts)
Room location:  TBD Rosen Hotel

When you reply to this message, please provide the following information:
·         YES...I can work the following shift(s):
·         My cell phone number that I will have at convention is:
·         I live in (state):
·         MAYBE.....I'll check my schedule.  If 
possible, my preference is to work these hours
·         Braille skills (including if you read 
by touch or by sight as a sighted person)
Note:  If you are a parent of a blind child under 
the age 18 (or still in high school or below), we 
know that you will want to attend the NOPBC 
Annual Meeting which takes place just before the 
BBF, but we would welcome you to work either 
during the event or on the clean-up shift after the event.

The Braille Book Fair has become one of the 
highlights of the convention for many teachers, 
parents, blind kids, blind parents, and adult 
beginning Braille readers.  But the event could 
not take place without the help of many 
dedicated, talented volunteers.  And that's where 
you come in.  As a past worker, or simply 
interested supporter of the Braille Book Fair, I 
hope you can either volunteer, or give me the 
contact information for someone that you recommend.

You do not need to work the entire afternoon or 
evening, but I do ask that you try to work an 
entire shift.  We especially need for people who 
help customers to come BEFORE we open the doors 
at 5:00 pm and to commit to staying until at 
least 6:30 pm. Book lovers are great for this 
shift, as you will assist visitors in book decisions/selections.

Thanks so much for taking time to consider this 
request, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
If you can help, please contact Sandra Oliver, 
NOPBC Board Member at 713.825-4573 or
