Hello my fellow federationists.
took me all week to recoup both at home and at work but wanted to post a thank you to all.
This past week I attended my first convention in Orlando. This was an incredible experience!
Also wanted to thank all of those I may have either bumped into, had a chance to chat with or apologize to those I wasn't able to catch up with.
Thanks to our state affiliate and the Kenneth Jernigan for the scholarship funds that allowed my participation possible.
I enjoyed very much attending meetings, general session to help me learn more about the NFB goals and philosophy.
Our Dr Maurer is a very inspirational speaker. We actually had many inspirational speakers that shared with us.
I plan to attend next year and as many in the future as possible.
I found the support, encouragement and Camaraderie excellent in helping with ones self confidence.
This environment is for sure a true test of mobility skills. A true challenge to learn the layout and to find the correct room in time for the meeting you were trying to attend. *smile*. As I was not always as prompt as I had intended when I left my room.
also, hats off to the UPS volunteers that kept us all headed in the right direction. These folks were very helpful without overdoing, and a very friendly beacon in the sea of humanity
Thanks so very much to the NFB organization and to all that played a part in this most awesome event.
>From an awe struck new member. I hope to be able to share with another the same help and generosity that I have been shown.
