Conference Bits N Pieces (PART I)

Hola all,

Just a note to alert everyone to have their eyes peeled for the mailman this week, for our Spring Newsletter is in the mail and on its way, packed with Conference Information including the details on the Scott Hoffman sessions. As soon as I spy one myself, I'll send out the same information here on the Roundtable and George Lies will distribute it via his e-news.

While we're on the subject of the Conference, one of the popular annual events at the conference is the Silent Auction. This is where you the membership can donate items to be auctioned off silently (via open paper bid sheets). Each year we request such items from conference attendees as well as any items you might be able to persuade businesses in your area to donate. You can use our auction solicitation letter to seek contributions from those area businesses. These items could be anything, really, but something of local flavor from your particular part of the state is always nice. (The Flatwoods Monster porcelain statue, from last year, was a hotly bid upon item.)

Conference attendees may bid on the silent auction items with cash, check or with any WV Writers Fun Money you may have saved from years past.

This year Lynne Sturtevant will be our Silent Auction coordinator. If you have items you'd like to bring, please send her a note at to let her know what to expect.
