Hi all,
 One of the things I love about NABS is that anyone and everyone can take part in building the success of the division. 
 No one person can make it possible, it's truly a connected effort if we really want to change what it means to be a blind student by showing that you can live the life you want.
 I encourage  all who will be at convention to look into their schedules and see what time they can carve out to contribute to what our division does to fruther the work of the National FEderation of the Blind.
 Thanks so much and check out the below announcement.


>> Hey Nabs!! 
>>>> As you all know, the National association of blind students is
>>>> planning a lot of exciting things at national convention. What you may
>>>> not know however is that we as a board can’t do all of it ourselves.
>>>> So we would very much appreciate your help in making the nabs
>>>> activities a success this year!
>>>> Where we would most appreciate your assistance is in three areas
>>> 1: marshalers for the NABS meeting.   
>>> They  are the few, the proud,   the people who make sure you know  where the action is. 
>>> They help you find the right line to stand in.   Without them, we don't know how the night might go.
>>> five to ten people are needed for the NABS meeting
