Please count NM in the fundraising. I don't know which shift(s) I can
personally help with at this moment, but I am pretty available.

Subject: [Nmabs] Nabs Still needs your help at national convention!

 Hello Fellow Students,
  Convention is just around the corner- can you believe it?

  As you all know,  the National association of blind students is  planning
a lot of exciting things at national convention. What you may  not know
however is that we as a board  can't do  all of it ourselves.
 So we would  very much  appreciate your help in making  The nabs
activities a success this year!
  Where we would most appreciate your assistance is in two areas:
 1.  assistance  in staffing the nabs table  located in the exhibit hall.
  Here you will be partnered up  with a nabs board member selling  coffie
mugs and handing out nabs literature.  The schedule  for  tabling looks like
  Monday , July 4:
  Shift  1. 11 a.m. -1 p.m.

 Shift 2. 1 p.m.  - 3 p.m.

 Shift 3. 3 p.m. - 5p.m.

 Tuesday, July 5:

 shift 4:  9a.m. - 11a.m.

 Shift 5: 11a.m. - 1 p.m.

 Shift 6: 1: p.m. - 3p.m.
 Shift 7. 3p.m. - 5 p.m.
 Wednesday, July 6:
 Shift 8: 12 noon - 1:45 p.m.

 Shift 9: 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

 Shift 10:  8:30 p.m. - 10p.m.

 Thursday, July 7:
 Shift 11: 12 noon - 1:45 p.m.

 shift 12:  7p.m. - 8p.m.

 shift 13: 8p.m. - 9p.m.

 As you can see, we have  thirteen shifts, so  if you contact me with  your
preference, I will be more  than happy to get you scheduled in!
  *Note  to state Student division presidents: we would like to  offer  you
the opportunity to  sell your fundraising items at the nabs table,  if you
would be willing to  help us staff it.  If so, please  contact
 me with the times you would be willing to work.    If   your state
 student division president is not  going to be attending convention,  still
contact me, and we'll get your division in there to fundraise.

 2. The Nabs business meeting and elections.   We want to make
 registration and elections as painless and orderly as possible, and  you
can absolutely help with  this! We are going to need: individuals  who are
willing to marshal (you know, those folks that say "nabs
 meeting: this way!". If you are  loud, we could really use your help
 We will also need individuals to be "runners". These  individuals will
help to count ballots in the event that a voice vote is not sufficient  to
settle a contested election.  These individuals should be willing  to
collect and count ballot cards in order to  determine the winner of
  the electoral contest.  It is  strongly recommended that individuals
 serving in this vital role   do not seek election  to any nabs office,
 in order to  insure an unbias and fair election for all persons  involved.

 3. Staffing the nabs monte carlo night fund raiser. This is a great
opportunity to work shoulder to shoulder with us  in putting together  one
of our most successful events that we do.  For this we will  need:
  Individuals who can work  an early shift ( 7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
 Those  individuals will be asked to:
 a.	Marshal.
 b.	Set up for the event
 c.	Deal card games( blackjack, poker, holdemand other such games)
  We will also need Late shift workers (9:30 p.m. - 12:00 a.m.)  Those
individuals would be asked to:
 a.	deal card games (blackjack, poker, holdem and other such games)
 b.	assist with event clean- up and playing  chip  counting.

 Please let me know what shift(s) you are interested in working  (exhibit
hall, monte carlo or both), and please include a phone number
  which we can use to contact you at convention (just in case). If  Monte
carlo,  please let me know what job you would like to take on,  if you would
like to deal and what games  you would like to deal  (blackjack, poker,
holdem or other such games).
  This is a great opportunity for you to meet the nabs board, and us to  get
to know you. As well, this is  an equally great opportunity for  you  to
meet a lot of new people and have some fun at the same time.
  Please contact me by July 1 if interested.
  I can be contacted at: dsmithnfb at gmail.com

  Thank you   so much for your interest  and I look forward to hearing
 from you all real soon
  And of course, See you in Orlando!
