I hope that when we are trying to get people to attend the convention the
purpose is to educate them on nfb. I know that some will stray but even they
will reap some of the fruit. We must also understand that more will be asked
of individuals and chapters to off set the cost. When ever I say lets get
more to the convention it means because we have limited state educational
programs where we have national  and state reps together to walk the walk
and not only talk. 
I think this convention marks great important to the future of the
affiliate. Together we can build and not just in numbers. Richard

these people would participate and attend sessions to make it worh their
trip.  Numbers are important in only so many ways.  If we had a hundred
people attending from Capital chapter and yet only 12 ever showed up at any
given session at any time............ddwe still have not accomlished our
purpose.  While we are encourging people to come and building these numbers
we also need to re-educate them on the purpose of the convention.the reasons
behind it all, not just encouraging an expense paid trip  We need to
re-educate and, reinforce, the learning experiences, networking goals and
revitalization of chapters in order to share the NFB PHILOSOPHY AND GOALS.
Every person you bring to convention is a potential leadership recruit and
participant in growth, fundraising and helping show the world what blind
persons CAN DO NOT WHAT THEY CANNOT D.  (REMEMBERING THAT THE WORLD THINKS
