Subject: [Nfbmo] Intent to run for first vice president

Good morning friends,

I would like to continue serving the National Federation of the Blind of
Missouri by running for the position of first vice president at the upcoming

As many of you know, I am currently a student at the Colorado Center for the
Blind.  I will be graduating from my training program in early June and plan
to return to Missouri where I will find a job and begin my journey in the
working world.

Many of you have asked me about my intent to return home and continue my
work with the Missouri affiliate.  Until recently, I did not know where my
career would take me.  Now, however, I plan to take my career in my own
hands and apply for jobs in Missouri so that I can be closer to friends and
family, including my NFB of Missouri family.

Although I have not resided in Missouri for the past ten months, I have
remained active as a leader in our affiliate.  I have not missed a board
meeting, have continued to chair our scholarship committee, and have
attended Washington and Jefferson City Seminars.  It is my goal to dedicate
myself to building our membership, growing our scholarship program, and
advocating for our legislation.

I am grateful for all of the opportunities the National Federation of the
Blind has afforded me.  Right now I am gaining skills at the Colorado Center
that I could not learn anywhere else.  And all of it began with our
affiliate and our welcoming atmosphere.  I believe I can use what I've
learned as well as what I continue to learn from all of you, to bring
members into our affiliate and give them the same opportunities I have
found.  So, yes, I am asking for your support as I intend to run for the
affiliate's first vice president position.

I look forward to seeing you all at convention next month!  One month away!

Most sincerely,

Julie A. McGinnity
