Silent Auction and NAIA Fundraiser: Good news! Following last year?s successful Silent Auction Fundraiser, we are again arranging for an auction to help support the NAIA, with some significant changes. We have been given permission by Maumee Bay to open this silent auction to all guests staying or visiting the lodge during our conference. Concurrent with our NAIA meeting, Maumee Bay is hosting a large medical conference. Additionally, other guests will be staying at the lodge. Opening the auction to bidding by other participants means:
- A wider audience that will see the auction artwork
- A larger bidding pool of individuals outside our own artist/contributor community
- Artists who contribute work may place a minimum bid on the work. Artists will receive their minimum on any work sold. Bid amounts over the minimum will benefit the NAIA and go into the NAIA’s general fund to promote the work of NAIA.Further information will be forthcoming soon about the Silent Auction and how you can participate! Be sure to check box if you are interested when you complete the registration. Also available on the PDF print registration form.
Activities for Children and Spouses: Maumee Bay State Park is a premiere vacation spot on the shores of Lake Erie, and is easily accessible to area attractions in the Toledo area. While you are attending the conference, there are many activities to stimulate their many interests. And all facilities at Maumee Bay Resort are open to conference participants. For further information, see Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Maumee Bay Resort.
Show Director Note: We welcome all show directors to attend this conference. Directors who attended last year?s conference reported that the conference was very informative and valuable to them. While most conference topics are geared toward artists, there will be many things that show directors will find of interest. The panel discussion on reaching out to and attracting art collectors to your show (see agenda) will be particularly focused toward show directors and will invite their active participation.
Preliminary Conference Agenda: Of course, the most important part of all of this is the agenda! To whet your appetite, here is the preliminary agenda. As this agenda is refined, we will update this page to keep you informed and eager.
(Please note that this is a tentative schedule only. We reserve the right to change times and topics.)
