 From Scott White, our Newsline Director:
 Greetings fellow Federationists:


The 72nd annual national convention of the National Federation of the Blind
is rapidly approaching, so before everyone's schedule is entirely packed, I
wanted to write to you to ask for your assistance.  The NFB-NEWSLINE team
will be hosting a demonstration room and a table in the Exhibit Hall this
year.  Both of these activities will require a number of volunteers and we
would greatly appreciate any time that you could offer to help with our
convention activities.  


We have recently launched new service features, and we want to give
convention attendees an opportunity to become familiar with these additions
so that they can make the most of them.  To aid us in this effort, in
addition to our two tables at the Exhibit Hall, the NFB-NEWSLINE team has
arranged for a demonstration room that will allow for hands-on
demonstrations of our recent service enhancements, such as the Global
Publication Search feature and the NFB-NEWSLINE Mobile application for the
iPhone (our newest access method, coming soon).  


Our demonstration room will be available for 13 hours of walk-in traffic and
our tables in the Exhibit Hall will need to be staffed for 23 hours, so we
need plenty of help!  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.  Additionally, we need
volunteers to staff our room's four workstations to help convention
attendees learn about recent service additions.  We will provide those
interested in volunteering with information on these new service initiatives
before convention via a conference call so that everyone is up to speed.  


Please send an e-mail indicating your interest in volunteering during
convention to my assistant, Wanda Briggs.  Wanda can be reached via e-mail
at  <mailto:wbriggs at nfb.org> wbriggs at nfb.org or by calling (410) 659-9314,
extension 2238.  


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


Scott White
