2017 Silent Auction Request
One of the features of the AIS Conventions is the Silent Auction. Nick Stewart and Debbie Strauss are already planning for this year’s event. The Fall 2016 Irises Bulletin has their request for donations on page 16. You can see the request silent auction 2017 (PDF) online as well. Please consider donating items and hybridizers please consider donating irises to this super AIS fundraiser.
Debbie Strauss adds this note: Hey all you local societies, have you started collecting items from your area to give to your RVP for your Region’s Raisin’ Region basket for the Iowa AIS National Convention? The silent auction really needs and appreciates your participation and so do our shoppers. Contact your RVP about where to send your donations! Thank you.
You can reach Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to let her know about your planned donations.
Registration and Schedule Pages
Two pages to help you plan your Convention experience are the Registration page and the Schedule page. Both can be found just below the Rhythm of the Prairie logo above. They are just what they sound like. Information for registering for the Convention, reserving rooms, and for the Geek Dinner reservations is on the Registration page. The Schedule page has the latest schedule for the Convention and is where to check for updated schedules. We will have the dates the latest schedule was posted so you know if there have been changes; right now you can see the schedule as of December 1st.
