OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:
ATTENTION AUTHORS! You are invited to display and sell your new book at our Annual Meeting during the 10:30-11:45 social period. We will have a limited number of tables, so please be prepared to share space with other members. Be sure to indicate on your registration if you'll be participating.
BOOKS NEEDED FOR RAFFLE FUNDRAISER. Members are encouraged to donate a new book(s) for our annual meeting raffle to benefit the VWC Education & Scholarship Fund. It can be a member's published book, or any other new book. Books are to be brought on the day of the event and placed on the raffle table for display. Raffle tickets will be sold for $1 each at the sign-in table and during lunch. Raffle drawings will be held after lunch until all raffle items are claimed. Winners go up to the raffle table as their name is announced and pick whichever book they want.
ATTENTION VWC CHAPTERS! Gift Baskets Needed for Silent Auction Fundraiser. Each VWC Chapter is asked to contribute a gift basket to be auctioned via silent bids to benefit the VWC Education Fund. Baskets can be regional, literary, or just great gifts. Chapters should come up with a jazzy title for the basket, a list of contents and approximate values, so we can prepare the bid sheets with those details. Your chapter will be responsible for delivery to Embassy Suites on the day of the event.
