I'll be there.
One caveat, though: NFB of Washington isn't having a "spring conference" as
such. WE will hold a seminar for parents of blind children and blind youth;
Denise Mackenstadt has already described this seminar on the list.
See you Saturday.

> Hello All,
> Well, I know I haven't been on the list much, but that doesn't mean I

> Saturday, February 20, 2010 from 10 - 11:45am. We meet at the downtown
> YMCA, 909 4th Street, between Madison and Marion. Kay Burrows has been
> ill and unable to make the usual calls, so they are getting done, but
> I ask that you help spread the word about our meeting. Bring a friend,
> family member or another blind person you meet.
> This month we have a full agenda and we will need to start on time and
> end by 11:45am. This is because the YMCA closes at noon on Saturday
> and the staff at the YMCA cannot leave us in the bilding "staffless"
> (Yes, that is the word that was used when I talked with the people at
> the Y). So we will begin the meeting with introductions and reading of
> the minutes and the year end treasurer's report no later than 10:15am.
> As we have elections this month, we will be very busy.
> We will hear from Dr. Marc Maurer through the monthly presidential
> release. At this meeting we will also hear from Mike Freeman, NFBW
> President, regarding the Washington Seminar, recent legislation
> regarding DSB and the WSSB and any other bits of state news that he
> would like to add. Mike Mello will report on the recent developments
> with the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library. We will have an
> update on the Spring Conference and a brief plug for the National
> Convention and the Race for Independance. So, as you can see this is a
> packed agenda
> Now, to make Doug Johnson happy, anyone who still has monies from any
> of last years events, please bring them to Doug. Also, as you know,
> annual dues are now payable. Annual dues for the NFBW Seattle Chapter
> are $5 a year. Your dues must be current if you wish to run for office
> or be a voting member of the chapter. If you would like to be a
> lifetime member, just cut a check for $100! Anyone who still has Louis
> Braille Coin money should please be sure to bring this with you. I
> will bring more coins with me so anyone wishing to purchase them may.
> I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting. It has been a true
> pleasure serving as your Seattle Chapter president for the last six
> See you on Saturday.
