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)

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.

Dear President,

My name is Jenni Sperry and I am working with Ron Gardner in coordinating
further A T M testing for the NFB. Please read the following information
from Ron regarding your help with this project.

 As part of the settlement agreement with Cardtronics Inc. the NFB is
responsible to test a few more A T M machines. You will recall that last
year we tested over 150 machines. This year however, we are only testing a
small number. 

Your affiliate will be sent a $60 check for each machine that is tested and
for which a ten question survey is completed on our NFB website. I am
attaching a document which explains how to complete the survey.

This testing must be done as quickly as possible. The results are needed for
a report to the Federal Court. 

Last year we were given a list of hundreds of A T M machines to test. This
year we are being requested to test specific machines. The three machines in
your state are listed below. Please immediately assign the testing of these
ATM machines. The machine information is copied from an excel file and is
listed as follows: first by serial number, second the location, third the
address to the location, the city, state, and then zip code. If you have any
questions please contact me at 801-299-9349 or 801-232-6547.

Well said Carol. I for one am going to try to encourage our chapters members

to go and learn all they can. The more you know about what you are trying to

do the more succesful it is going to be, and I for one want to be the best I

can be at what I am doing.

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

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

200 blind high school students have just 
converged on the campus of the University of 
Maryland to spend a wild week learning about 
science, technology, engineering, and math.  With 
more than 70 adult blind mentors, they will build 
greenhouses, dissect sharks, learn CSI techniques, and even drive cars.



You can follow along through the week and learn 
breaking news from the NFB Youth Slam by going to

<http://www.twitter.com/NFBYouthSlam>www.twitter.com/NFBYouthSlam

or follow ???NFBYouthSlam??? if you already have a Twitter account,.



Two hundred blind and low vision students from 
all across the country will attend this five-day 
adventure that will engage, inspire, and 
encourage the next generation of blind youth to 
consider careers falsely believed to be 
impossible for the blind.  Have you ever wanted 
to build and launch a rocket?  Are you interested 
in learning about forensics?  Or do you have an 
interest in journalism?  The possibilities are plentiful at the NFB Youth
Slam!

While staying at the University of Maryland, 
College Park, students will be mentored by blind 
role models during fun and challenging activities 
designed to build confidence and increase science literacy.  Participants
Students and mentors dance during the closing party of the 2007
will also have the opportunity to attend 
workshops on topics such as leadership, career 
preparation, and blindness.  In addition, 
students will have time for fun and mingling 
during social activities, such as extreme sports, 
recreation night, and a talent show.

Dear Dawn and any chapters this ideal is a challenge to all. We are trying
to grow and educate every one we can. I am not worried about any one being
more active than the Dayton  chapter we are game for the last lap of this
race do you taste the dust? 

Thanks Richard
