Dear Fellow Federationists:


We are just a week away from the excitement of the convention of the
National Federation of the Blind of Maryland in Annapolis, and I hope
that you plan to attend.  As you know the convention will take place
from October 22-24 (if you need more details on the convention hotel,
please visit www.nfbmd.org).


The convention is a wonderful time to learn more about progress in the
NFB and about resources available in Maryland. We are again pleased to
feature an exhibit hall on Friday afternoon and we encourage you to
spend a few minutes visiting with the exhibitors who have taken the time
to come to the convention. The exhibit hall will be open on Friday,
October 22, from 1-6 p.m. in the Mainsail West Room at the Doubletree.
