Greetings Fellow Federationists,

This is just to let everyone know in advance the assignments for chapters during our 2017 convention to take place at the Holiday Inn and Suites in Charleston from September 7 to September 10.  It is hoped that the sharing of responsibilities will help make our convention run smoothly and efficiently.

You will notice that not all chapters will have responsibilities this year as we are no longer doing as many things during convention.  These chapters will take their turn in 2018.

For all members, please feel free to pitch in during convention wherever you feel help is needed.

Registration Table:  Huntington Area Chapter
The chapter in charge of the registration table will be responsible for collecting convention and banquet registration fees, handing out name tags and agendas, and providing receipts when requested.  They will also be responsible for collecting the name tags at the close of the convention.

Members Auction:  Kanawha Valley Chapter
The chapter in charge of the Members Auction will coordinate this through Chairperson Sheri Koch.  This chapter will be responsible for making contact with all chapters several times throughout the year to encourage all members to obtain at least one item for the auction.  This chapter will also be responsible for gathering auction items at the registration table during registration times.  This chapter will also be responsible for setting up for the auction.

Collecting and Awarding of Door Prizes:  Sightless Workers' Guild
Please be aware that during the March 2017 meeting of the NFBWV Board of Directors, it was decided that door prizes be valued at no less than ten dollars and that every chapter provide a minimum of two door prizes  in the form of cash or merchandise.  This chapter will be responsible for collecting the door prizes from the registration table.  This chapter will also be responsible for making the name cards that will be used for the awarding of the door prizes.  This chapter will also insure that the door prize gets to the winner.
