Good Morning Potential Exhibitors, Past Exhibitors, and Sponsors:

If you are receiving this e-mail, we believe you may be interested in 
becoming an exhibitor or sponsor of the 2009 National Federation of 
the Blind (NFB) National Convention, being held in Detroit, Michigan 
from July 3-8, 2009.   Many of you are past exhibitors and sponsors 
of our convention, and I hope you will return for our 69th annual convention.

Dr. Maurer's attached open letter provides an overview of the other 
documents available which will answer questions about sponsorships, 
sponsored events, exhibit operating hours, costs related to 
exhibiting and electric service, access to Internet, details about 
the hotel, and related information.

You are encouraged to read through all of the information provided in 
one of two formats, either Word doc, or PDF, which are located on our 
Web site, available at this link: 

Exhibitors should be aware that all applications and payment are due 
by Friday, May 29th.  Exhibitor applications received after May 29 
will be charged a late fee of $100 per table, if space is still available.

Sponsors must complete and return an application and provide ad copy, 
by May 1st to reserve ad placement in the agenda.  Sponsorships will 
be accepted after May 1st, but ad placement in the agenda is not guaranteed.

The 3rd annual March for Independence will be held on Monday, July 
6.  Corporate sponsor information is available by going to the 
following link: 

In the event you have additional questions about exhibiting, or 
becoming a 2009 National Convention or 2009 March for Independence 
sponsor,  please contact Jerry Lazarus at the phone number listed 
below or by e-mail.

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to working with you at 
our 2009 National Convention in Detroit.
