Missouri  Federationists,
Only two more hours left  to apply!
   I want to remind everyone that the deadline to  apply to receive a 2013 
Rittgers Stipend to attend National Convention is  5:00 pm, today, 
Wednesday, 05/15/13.  If you or someone you know is  interested, please apply ASAP!
    The National Convention will be held  Monday, July 1st through Saturday 
afternoon, July 6th 
at the Rosen Centre Hotel, 9840 International Drive in  Orlando, Florida.  
Please check the NFB website for more  information:
     The NFB National  Conventions provide an amazing, life-changing  
opportunity.   NFB members from all over the US and from  across the world meet 
to network, share tips on all aspects of  living, to make new friends, to 
learn new skills  and to discover opportunities to enhance your  current 
skills.   There are numerous seminars,  interest group meetings, demonstrations by 
vendors of new and  improved devices and much much more.  
     As noted in an  earlier post, applicants who have never attended a 
National Convention,  whether as a member of the Missouri affiliate or any 
other affiliate have  priority.    Successful applicants are required to  
participate fully in convention activities each day, and to be prepared to  report 
on their experiences if requested.  You are also expected to  share a hotel 
room to help defray costs.   Applications for a  stipend will be considered 
for non-first timers if funding is  available
