I wish that by getting "the most" people to a convention it also meant 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.............we 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 do. (remembering that the world thinks
 blind persons are incapable of anything useful)
Carol.

Hi Pichard,
I think the person who gets most people to the State Convention
should get dinner at a Restaurant they can use at home. That
oway you'll be able to redeem it. Of course, they could always
win some yummy Icecream from Coldstone.
We could always give the winner a cat! Just kidding!
Have a great day.
