Hello all,


This is a reminder to register for the NFB National Convention before
registration closes on June 15, 2020.  Maryland is battling hard with Texas
to have the highest attendance of any affiliate, and we can't let Texas beat
us.  And, to show our appreciation for you registering and getting your
friends to register, we will, if Maryland wins the attendance banner, hold a
drawing of all Marylanders.  First prize is $100, second prize is $50, and
third prize is $25.  Imagine that: Convention registration is free but you
can win money just for registering.  

You can register in a couple of ways: 

1.       Visit https://nfb.org/registration

2.       If you don't have an email address, send me your information and I
will register you - email me or have someone on your behalf email me at
President at nfbmd.org <mailto:President at nfbmd.org>  or call me at


Here is some more information, but let's go win the attendance prize!



The largest gathering of blind people will be held July 14 through July 18,

This will include most of the elements we all know and love, with some new
twists. The 2020 National Convention will be held virtually for the first
time, and you can participate by phone or web.  There will be multiple ways

Ronza Othman, President

National Federation of the Blind of Maryland



The National Federation of the Blind of Maryland 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.
