NAAFA Convention

This is an announcement for the NAAFA Convention, being held in Washington, D.C. from July 30 through August 3, 2009. I will be giving a workshop where I'll talk about the TravelScoot, and Hardy Huber (the TravelScoot inventor) will be there too. More information about the convention is available on NAAFA's website, at

Founded in 1969, NAAFA is a non-profit human rights organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for fat people. NAAFA works to eliminate discrimination based on body size and provide fat people with the tools for self-empowerment through public education, advocacy, and member support.

NAAFA Is Turning 40 and we are having a convention celebration that you won't want to miss!

Join us for our annual fund-raising Convention being held July 30 thru August 3, 2009 at the Dulles Airport Marriott in Washington D.C. You may register to join us through our website at We are forty years old and going strong with the strength we need to build the future.
This year's convention will be packed with learning, networking, community building, swimming, dancing and more. Friday night's 2009 NAAFA Fashion Show is promising to be the country's premier plus size fashion show with dinner and fashion plus our well-known Not-So-Silent Auction. Don't forget your prettiest party clothes for Saturday Night's Awards Dinner and Masquerade Gala as we share a sumptuous meal and dance the night away.

Sunday we will learn from knowledgeable experts the most effective ways of working to change our laws then on Monday August 3rd we will visit key representatives and organizations to present our case for changing this country's anti-discrimination laws. You won't want to miss this opportunity to be involved.

We have worked hard to keep the cost of this convention down and have made it easy for you to register for the convention as well as the hotel at Our earlybird special thru June 1 is only $199.00. We encourage you to register for the full package today and to fully participate in this exciting, life-changing event.


  1. I am really looking forward to Hardy being there and having a chance to show off our Scoots. good for you for giving the workshop. have they figured out the workshop schedule? I am doing both NAAFA and ASDAH workshops, and I plan to arrive a day early so I can scoot around the Smithsonian Institution.

  2. I'm looking forward to it too! I have a feeling the whole convention is going to be a TravelScoot workshop for you and me.

    The workshop schedule isn't finalized yet. I'm going on Tuesday and will be going to the Smithsonian hopefully on Wednesday or maybe Thursday. I've never been there.

    The topic of my workshop is going to be about living as a supersize person.
