Greetings fellow Federationists:<?xml:namespace 
prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

As you are surely aware, the NFB national 
convention is rapidly approaching, and so before 
everyone’s schedule is entirely packed I wanted 
to write to you to ask for your assistance.  As 
this is the first convention since launching 
NFB-NEWSLINE® Online (Web site: 
www.nfbnewslineonline.org), we wanted to seize 
this occasion to afford convention attendees with 
an opportunity to become familiar with our new 
features, including Web News on Demand and 
NFB-NEWSLINE® In Your Pocket.  To aid us in this 
effort, in addition to our two tables at the 
exhibit hall, the NFB-NEWSLINE® team has arranged 
for a suite (accommodating up to 25 people) that 
will allow for hands-on demonstrations of our 
newest online initiatives.  This great effort to 
promote the service to convention attendees means 
that we are in great need of a great many pair of 
hands to help us out!  Our suite will be 
available for 28 hours of walk-in traffic and our 
tables in the exhibit hall will need to be 
staffed for 23 hours--that’s a total of 51 
hours!  We are looking for support from our 
members who are familiar with the NFB-NEWSLINE® 
service; our volunteers will be asked to assist 
visitors in many ways; by providing information, 
handing out literature and helping sign up new 
subscribers, and demonstrating the service’s 
features.  I would very much appreciate it if you 
would take some time during the convention to 
assist us in promoting and demonstrating the 
service to convention attendees.  Please also ask 
others in your affiliate who you know use 
NFB-NEWSLINE® to volunteer their time as 
well   In return, you'll provide a valuable 
service and receive prodigious thanks!

Please send me an e-mail indicating your interest 
in volunteering during convention.  My e-mail 
address is <mailto:rwest at nfb.org>rwest at nfb.org 
and my inbox can accept a lot of entries!

If you have questions, you may also reach me by 
phone at (410) 659-9314, extension 2411.

Thank you for your time and for your attention to this matter.
