I am pleased to be able to tell you about a new list. It is called 
NFB-Conventions. It is a place where you can make convention-related 
announcements, find a roommate etc. Below is the official description 
and subscription information. Please read the description before you 
submit any message  as it will explain what is allowed, and what 
isn't. Also, this is an announce-only list, so messages will be 
checked before they are allowed on the list. It is also not a list 
for discussion, just announcements. Here is the description.

This list is sponsored by the National
Federation of the Blind, NFB.

The name of this list is NFB-Conventions. The purpose of the list is 
to support our members, Chapters, Divisions, and Affiliates in all 
convention-related activities. The list is here to facilitate the 
exchange of announcements related to both NFB National Convention and 
conventions of NFB state affiliates held throughout the year.

Are you looking for a roommate, or do you have space in a hotel room,
then this is the place to let others know. Announcements concerning 
streaming, the agenda,
related meetings, transportation arrangements, and other 
convention-related matters are all appropriate
for this list. This is an announcement-only list. The list is 
moderated -- which means all posts will be approved
before they appear on the list. Only NFB related fund-raising 
messages will be allowed on this list on a limited basis (e.g. an 
affiliate or national division may post one announcement regarding 
its offerings at the exhibit table at the national convention). 
Please include contact information on all message submissions.

This is also not a forum for messages or announcements from 
Exhibitors or Vendors. These restrictions are intended to make the 
list most useful to those seeking information about NFB conventions.

The list is moderated by David Andrews. You can reach him at:

david.andrews at nfbnet.org

You should also contact him concerning technical problems.

To subscribe to the list you can either go to:


or send e-mail to nfb-conventions-request at nfbnet.org and put the word 
subscribe on the subject line.

David Andrews, Moderator and List Owner
