    Your interview was really magnetifico with this deaf lez coordinator of the WRAD office in the GLBT community center.

    Many deaf GLBT in DC area seems forget about the upcoming RAD conference. I will be definitely going to the Windy City for this conference.

    Please list all the airline services within the Chicago-NYC flight connections for the RAD conference.

    Does this WRAD office and the community center have the VP and webcam for visual communication via online?

    I would be much than happy to be of any assistance for the preparation of the WRAD/RAD 2009 conference in DC area. Just send me a DVD promotion of the RAD conference for our upcoming CMRA meeting and monthly coffeehouse as a gentle reminder for people to get ready for next year’s conference.

    Jimactor and everyone, Let’s bring back the ole’ great social events for people to get together in despite of the changing society within the Internet access and home entertainment!

    Greetings to our Friends and families from Far and Near,

    Like Fookembug says above….Yes, we do sell t-shirts! We are glad that you like the design of the t-shirts. Flashing NEWS: We have another NEW t-shirt design: Handshape of ‘C’ with rainbow in curve as in signing “Chicago”. It will be posted along with the current rainbow colored handshapes fingerspelled: C.H.I.C.A.G.O in our website soon (see Fookembug’s comment above for the link). I also would like to share with you that the RAD09 Conference Combo Tickets are on SALE –> “Yellow”. The Yellow Combo rates will soon be expired on September 30 2009. Better hurry and purchase them. Another exciting information to share with you and that is the Sheraton Hotel which is located right along the Chicago River in the heart of Chicago! The hotel room rates are at unbelievably low rate. That’s not all…we host monthly fund raising events. Visit our website for more information about WCRAD, RAD09 Conference, t-shirts, events, social gatherings and many more!

    On the behalf of WCRAD and myself, I wish to thank JFLMad and Jimactor for the interview and for sharing this information with you all worldwide. If you ever stop by Chicago, please be sure to look us up. Email in advance if you wish to visit our office.

    See you this coming SUMMER! ~~~ RAD 2009 CONFERENCE – CHICAGO ~~~

    Hi RLM,

    Thank you for sharing your interest in helping us in promoting our exciting RAD09 Conference. A minor correction: its WCRAD (add ‘C’) not WRAD. *Wink!* I will be gladly to have one of my committee send you a DVD of our upcoming conference.

    The Hospitality Chairperson is working on the transportation including the flights, shuttles (from airports – Midway and O’Hare to Sheraton Hotel) and Chicago’s famous “L” trains.

    As for VP, WCRAD has a VP in the office (888-772-5072). However, the office is not open on a daily basis. Whenever a WCRAD officer shows up in the office, all missed calls will be returned effectively. We do our best to return all emails and VP calls as soon as we can.

    Thank you, Robert!
