As Ohio's oldest organization of blind people working together to change
what it means to be blind, the NFB of Ohio offers a convention that will
inspire, empower, and celebrate our accomplishments. Join us to learn more
about issues confronting blind people to day and walk away ready to advocate
for change.
Our 72nd Annual Convention entitled "The Team Convention" will showcase
inspirational stories about the work of our movement, its history, and
philosophy. With proper training and opportunity, the blind can live the
life we want. It is through love, hope, and determination that the NFB helps
to transform dreams into reality.
About the NFB of Ohio
The National Federation of the Blind of Ohio is a 501(c)3 non-profit
organization and a founding affiliate of the National Federation of the
Blind. We are proud to be an integral part of the oldest and largest
organization of blind consumers in the United States. We are a diverse group
of people dedicated to changing what it means to be blind. Our members work
tirelessly to break down the legal, social, and personal barriers to living
the lives we want.
The mission of the National Federation of the Blind is to achieve widespread
emotional acceptance and intellectual understanding that the real problem of
blindness is not the loss of eyesight but the misconceptions and lack of
information which exist. We do this by bringing blind people together to
share our successes, to support each other in times of failure, and to
create imaginative solutions to the challenges that face us.
The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.

Suzanne Turner, Committee Chair
Mastering the Holiday Inn
by Barbara Pierce
Though parking is available near the sleeping rooms at this hotel, you will
probably first park on the east side of the facility. The main entrance is
near the check-in desk, close to the south end of the meeting room block.
Imagine that the meeting room area is roughly a square with an add-on
section on the north side at the northeast corner. The sleeping rooms form a
print T that lies south of the meeting rooms with the stem running
north-south and beginning half way back the south side of the east-west
hallway, which begins at the front door and stretches west to the Simmering
Pot Restaurant at the west end of the hall.
The check-in desk is near the front door and on your left as you walk toward
the Simmering Pot. Just past the desk on the left is the base of the
sleeping-room T. You will find the three sets of elevators in this
sleeping-room area. Convention registration will be located near the
check-in desk in the lobby part of the east-west hall.
As you walk west toward the Simmering Pot, on your left you will pass the
check-in desk, the hall leading to sleeping rooms and elevators, and
Vinney's Lounge, where dinner is served as well as drinks during the
evening. On the north (right) side of the hall are three corridors leading
into the meeting-room area. The east-west hall is tile, and the three
south-north meeting-room corridors are carpeted, as is the hallway leading
to the sleeping rooms.
Just after you step into the hotel, you can turn right into the first
meeting-room corridor. It is called the sales corridor because the sales and
catering offices are on the right of the hall as you walk north. The Aspen
Room is the first door on the left of this hall. There are restrooms on the
right just north of the sales office. A pair of drinking fountains is just
to the north of the men's room. There is a low, wheelchair fountain and then
a taller one. Neither reaches the floor, so they are a bit of a hazard since
a cane will slide under them. After the fountains is a door to the outside,
which is one of the dog relief areas as well as a seating area for smokers.
There are two sets of doors to pass through to get out. There is a permanent
trash receptacle outside, and the hotel staff will probably place a couple
of others out there for your convenience. Please use them when picking up
after your dog.
On the west side of the hallway is a door into the Mulberry Room, which is
our general session room. This door is located at the north side of the head
table. There is another entrance on the south wall of the Mulberry Room at
the west end, which means it is located at the back of the meeting room.
Returning to the sales hallway, the hall stops at the north end at a door
into the Chestnut Rooms A and B. These will be breakout rooms, especially on
Saturday. These two meeting rooms are the add-on space at the north end of
the meeting-room square.
Returning to the east-west hallway, where the check-in desk is located, and
walking west past the sales and catering corridor, you come to the second
corridor leading north. This is opposite the check-in desk. Walking north in
this carpeted hall, you pass the west door into the Aspen Room. If you stay
to the right walking north, you will walk straight into the back door to the
Mulberry room referred to above. Just to the left of that door is the door
to the Sycamore Room and west of that room is the Cypress Room. These two
rooms are the hospitality room on Friday night.
On the west side of the south-north corridor is a door into the Board Room,
and around the corner in the east-west corridor that passes the Cypress Room
is another door into the Board Room. If you walk further west in this hall,
you will cross the third of the north-south hallways. Just beyond this hall
you will find a door on the south side of the hall, which leads into the
Juniper Room. There is a second door into this room which is on the south
end of the room and leads to the east-west hallway just outside the
Simmering Pot Restaurant. There are restrooms on the east wall of the third
north-south hall as well as the Butternut Room, which lies between the
restrooms and the main east-west hallway. When you leave the carpeting,
walking south, you will know that you are back in the main east-west hall.
When you cross this hall, you will enter Vinney's Lounge. The Simmering Pot
Restaurant is on your right at the west end of the hall, and the front door
of the hotel is to your left.
When you begin walking east toward the check-in desk, you will pick up the
carpeting leading south into the sleeping-room area. This is the stem of the
T. All of the elevators are on the stem: the first two pairs of cars are on
the left, and the third, single elevator is on the right, almost at the
junction of the stem of the T with the cross piece. The left or east arm of
the cross piece is shorter than the west arm. The sleeping rooms all have
ADA signs. Even-numbered rooms are on the right, and odd-numbered rooms are
on the left. Large circular mirrors with thick frames are hung at shoulder
height alternately right and left in the hall, so be careful not to hug the
walls as you walk, or you could locate the mirrors the hard way. There are
ice and soft drink machines near all the elevators. On floors one and six
there are rooms with a coin-operated washer and dryer. These are located
just after the second elevator bay. There are three sets of elevators on the
stem of the T. The first two sets go all the way to the sixth floor; the
last elevator goes only to floor five. That elevator is located on the right
(west) side of the hall almost at the cross-piece hall, and there are only
five floors of rooms on the cross piece.
A door leading to a dog-relief area on the west side of the corridor is
across the hall from the second set of elevators. This is a large grassy
area, and trash receptacles will be placed outside the door for your
convenience. Remember to take your room key card with you in order to get
back into the hotel.
I will conclude with my usual plea: do not just read through this article
once and then feel frustrated because you do not have a perfect map of the
hotel in your mind. Read through it carefully several times. Consciously
construct the map in your mind. Making maps is one of the skills of
blindness, but it takes practice to do it quickly. Use this article as a way
of developing the skill.
Announcements
Free Aira Site Access at National Federation of the Blind State Convention
The National Federation of the Blind has partnered with Aira to provide free
Aira Site Access to NFB members during our 2018 state convention. Aira
subscribers who are National Federation of the Blind members can use the
service at our convention for free without having minutes deducted from
their plans. In addition, those interested in Aira have the unique
opportunity to try out the service for free while at our convention. This
convention-wide, free site access is available only at NFB state
conventions, giving NFB members an exclusive opportunity to test-drive Aira
in a convention setting.
Aira allows blind people to connect using live video to a trained agent
through a mobile app or wearable glasses to get real-time visual information
or assistance. Learn more about Aira and special pricing available for NFB
members at go.aira.io/NFB.
How it Works
Before you head to convention or as soon as you get there, download the free
Aira app from the App Store, and create a guest account if you are not
already an Aira subscriber. Also make sure your phone's GPS feature is
enabled. When you enter the convention Site Access location, your phone will
receive a notification letting you know that the space you are in is part of
the Aira Network. When you connect with an agent, he or she will also
confirm that you are now covered by the network, and no minutes will be
deducted from your account.
When you leave or enter convention areas that are covered by the Site Access
network, you will be informed by the Aira agent.
To learn more about Aira and the special plan available exclusively to NFB
members, visit go.aira.io/NFB.
The Ohio Action Auction
Throughout the convention we will be holding an Action Auction to raise
money for the affiliate. The auction will be great fun with many valuable
items up for bid. Our chapters and divisions have submitted numerous items
including electronics, gift certificates, food baskets, and more to raise
money for the affiliate. The auction will take place throughout General
Sessions on Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, and at the Banquet.
Please bring auction items and door prizes to the registration table in the
hotel lobby. When registration is closed, you can call Annette Lutz, at
(614) 288-4323 to make arrangements to get your items to her.
Registration and Literature
Pre-registration packet pick-up and registration will take place In the
lobby of the hotel. Those who have completed their registration prior to
convention will form a line at the pre-registration table for a speedy
process. Visit the registration table to register for convention or to
purchase additional tickets to events. Both tables will be open for three
shifts on Friday, November 2, from 8:30 - 10:30 AM, 12:15 - 1:45 PM, and
6:00 - 7:00 PM, and then again on Saturday, November 3, from 8:00 - 8:45 AM.
The Cuyahoga Chapter volunteered to staff both tables at convention. Please
contact Shawn Martin at (216) 939-0502 with any questions or concerns.
NFB literature will be available throughout the convention and in the
Holiday Inn Lobby. Feel free to take as much as you like and share it with
your friends and family.
If you need assistance from the NFB of Ohio (such as helping a blind child
get a good education, getting access to blindness skills training, learning
to use NFB-NEWSLINE(r), or resolving an employment discrimination problem),
please go to the registration table. After the convention a member of the
NFB of Ohio will contact you. In addition, if you would like to sign up to
receive any of our publications or would like to get regular updates about
our programs and legislative efforts, please also visit the registration
table. The table will be open during the same time as the registration.
For more information please contact president Richard Payne at (937)
396-5573.
Door Prizes
Door prizes should be labeled clearly in print and Braille with the donor's
name and the amount of cash or type of gift. They may be brought directly to
Annette Lutz or left at Convention Registration with instructions.
Door prizes will be drawn periodically throughout convention sessions on
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and at the banquet. To be eligible for door
prizes, you must be registered for the convention and present in the room
when your name is called.
Guide Dogs
There are two relief areas for your convenience, one outside the convention
room hall and one near the sleeping room hall. Please read the hotel
description for details. For assistance with any guide dog issues, please
contact Deanna Lewis, President of the Ohio Guide Dog Users Division at
(513) 328-7976.
Exhibit Hall
Whether you are an information-seeker or a new-gadget shopper, you will find
everything that you need to help you live the life you want at this year's
exhibit hall. Visit the exhibit hall in The Aspen Room on Saturday, November
3, from Noon to 4:30 PM to explore the latest technology and to get answers
to the questions on your mind about employment, healthcare, services for the
blind, and much more.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
