Affiliate Presidents:

As you are surely aware, the NFB national
convention is rapidly approaching, and so before
everyone's schedule is entirely packed I wanted
to write to you to ask for your assistance.  As
this is the first convention since launching
NFB-NEWSLINE® Online (Web site:
www.nfbnewslineonline.org), we wanted to seize
this occasion to afford convention attendees with
an opportunity to become familiar with our new
features, including Web News on Demand and
NFB-NEWSLINE® In Your Pocket.  To aid us in this
effort, in addition to our two tables at the
exhibit hall, the NFB-NEWSLINE® team has arranged
for a suite (accommodating up to 25 people) that
will allow for hands-on demonstrations of our
newest online initiatives.  This great effort to
promote the service to convention attendees means
that we are in great need of a great many pair of
hands to help us staff our suite and tables.  Our
suite will be available for 28 hours of walk-in
traffic and our tables in the exhibit hall will
need to be staffed for 23 hours--if you've got a
calculator you know that's a total of 51
hours!  We are looking for support from your
affiliate members who are familiar with the
NFB-NEWSLINE® service; our volunteers will be
asked to assist visitors at our demonstration
stations in the suite and provide information in
the exhibit hall, as well as other tasks such as
handing out literature and helping sign up new
subscribers.  I would very much appreciate it if
you could look within your affiliate to see who
might be willing and able to provide us with
assistance; and of course if you have an hour to
spare we'd be extra appreciative.  In return,
you'll provide a valuable service and receive prodigious thanks!

I would prefer it if you could compile a list of
available and interested individuals and send
their names, along with their contact details, to
me via e-mail.  If this is not practical for you,
please have possible volunteers send me an e-mail
indicating their interest.  My e-mail address is
<mailto:rwest at nfb.org>rwest at nfb.org and my inbox can accept a lot of 
entries!

If you have questions, you may also reach me by
phone at (410) 659-9314, extension 2411.

Thank you for your time and for your attention to this matter.
