Congratulations Mr. President! Nice agenda. Having done this a time or two I know how challenging it is to put a good agenda together. I know you didn’t do it all yourself, because it is the Team Convention. Good job Mr. President. Go Team!

> Pot Restaurant at the west end of the hall.

> 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

> north-south hall as well as the Butternut Room, which lies between the

> 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

> 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

> 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
