It’s that time of year again! You’re cordially invited to our Michigan SLA’s Annual Meeting and Holiday Party. Come join fellow members and wander the silent auction table then feast on a delicious buffet topped off with a decadent dessert from Weber’s Inn. It’s a great way to reflect, meet the new board members, and mingle with your colleagues.
A few examples of items available at this year’s auction will be a Motawi Tile and a Family Fun pack to the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum. We’ve got tickets to Wild Swan Theater, The Henry Ford, Purple Rose Theatre, and other local venues, as well as a Trader Joe’s goody bag and other items.
And, for the first time ever, we’ll be offering the services of a photographer to take your professional headshot, so start planning your outfit and hair-do now!
We also need your help with the Silent Auction…read on!
The Holiday Party Silent Auction is back by popular demand! The auction is used to raise funds to send a student member to the SLA annual conference. In addition to items donated by local businesses for attendees to bid on, we would love to include something donated by you or your organization!
- Do you have a knack for knickknacks and other arts and crafts?
- Consider donating one of your works. Last year’s items included handmade jewelry and other crafts.
- Want to support the travel stipend fund, but aren’t up to contributing a homemade item?
- Feel free to donate an item you’ve purchased. Last year, members donated gift baskets, and previous years have seen wine and even a heated cat mat!
- Or, bring your checkbook–we’ll be accepting checks at the event (or you can make arrangement to mail one in if you can’t be there in person).
- If you work at an organization that makes neat stuff they’d be willing to donate or that might be willing to support the travel stipend fund directly, please consider asking them to join in on the fun, too! Last year we had a nice little gift package from Mango Languages.
Please contact Celia Ross (email@example.com) if you are interested in making a donation of any kind or have any questions.
