I plan to get started on our third annual White Cane Walk immediately after 
convention, so I'll try to check this meeting out.  We've got a good base of 
support going for it already, and I'm sure this is the right place to pick 
up more ideas!  Thanks for distributing.

Greetings affiliate/chapter presidents and Meet the Blind Month planners:

Once again, we are only days away from our National Convention in Detroit, 
Michigan.  This message is a reminder of the Meet The Blind Month Activities 
and Other Special Events Seminar on Sunday afternoon, July 5, from 3:15 
p.m. to 4:45 p.m., in the  Duluth B Room,  Level 5.

Find out about entertaining and fun events that you can plan for your 
affiliate or chapter's Meet the Blind Month in October.  A new component of 
Meet the Blind Month this year is Who's Whozit.  Learn who Whozit is and 
Whatzit all about.

Pickup ideas and strategies for planning other special events.   We 
encourage you to attend this seminar, or send a representative to share your 
ideas and learn what other Meet the Blind Month activities are being planned 
for this year.

In 2008, the NFB organized more than 400 events nationwide.  I anticipate 
that we will exceed that number in 2009

Effective and successful events take time to plan properly, organize, and 
advertise.  Make your upcoming events as successful as possible by learning 
techniques used by Federationists around the country.

Looking forward to your attendance.

Best regards,
