Dear  Students  in the Nabs southwest region(CA, NV, HI, NM,AZ)

 Hello, I would first like to take this opportunity to introduce
myself. My Name  Is Darian Smith,  I am a board member with the
national Association of Blind Students (nabs).  I currently serve as
the regional representative for your area.  I   would  like to  take
this opportunity to gage interest in two things.   First, I would like
to see what kind of interest  there   might be  in a regional
gathering of the  state student divisions?  If there is enough
interest from all of you, we would look to move forward with planning
an in-person  gathering for sometime in the early part of 2010.
 Secondly, I would like to set-up a regional meeting via conference
call to happen during the first  part of November, possibly that first
weekend of?  This would give all of us an opportunity to  talk about
what our states  our doing right now, be it fund-raisers, Meet the
blind month events, or anything fun.
 We can take  time during the meeting to talk more about   the
possible regional gathering, and what  we would like it to look like
and who would like to  take the lead on helping to plan it.
 If you have   interest in either one or both of these events, please
feel free to  e-mail me @dsmithnfb at gmail.com
 Thank you all  for your time and I hope to hear from all of you soon!
 Best wishes on  an enjoyable weekend!

"And if you will join me in this improbable quest, if you feel destiny
calling, and see as I see, a future of endless possibility stretching
before us;
if you sense, as I sense, that the time is now to shake off our
slumber, and slough off our fear, and make good on the debt we owe
past and future generations,
then I'm ready to take up the cause, and march with you, and work with
you. Together, starting today, let us finish the work that needs to be
done, and
usher in a new birth of freedom on this Earth."- Baraq Obama
