ASBA Annual Meeting and Conference planning update from our missed meeting...

A New Opportunity for Working Together

Hello Members!
We wanted to give you the information that was to be presented at last Sunday's meeting, cancelled due to weather! It may seem like it is still a long time away, but an event like this takes huge amounts of planning with lots of volunteers. This Conference is the 20th Annual Meeting and Conference of the ASBA, and the second time it has been held in Denver. RMSBA was awarded this event in recognition of becoming the first Chapter of the ASBA at the first meeting held here in 2000. In that Conference, the first to have workshops and lectures over two days, RMSBA set the bar for a thriving conference culture in the ASBA which continues to grow and change with the times.

We need your ideas for workshops about art media, computer art, botanical art history, framing, exhibiting standards and how-to's, specialty specimens and other topics you want to include, educators you'd like to see teach, field trips you know will be wonderful, and support for the Silent Auction and Banquet and Awards activities. There are so many creative ways to help, from designing table decorations for the Banquet, to teaching, to shepherding first-time attendees, etc.

There'll be a Small Works Exhibition during the conference, and we need your help to manage the handling of artwork, labeling, opening reception and other fun tasks.

Rare-ing to Go!

Once you've looked things over, find a place where you can provide your support. Please contact Susan Fisher at susan@susanfisher.com  and let her know what you would like to do to help with this event. We need you!

All the best,

Dorothy DePaulo
President, RMSBA
