Welcome to Winter Conference
On behalf of the Wilton ALA I would like to invite you all to attend the 2014 Winter Conference to be held this year in Bismarck on January 31 through February 1 at the Ramkota Hotel. We have a special guest coming, our National President Janet Jefford. We are so pleased that she can make time in her busy schedule to be here with us, so I would like to show her a warm North Dakota welcome. We will be sending more information to you, but right now I would like you all to make plans on attending. It will be fun to see everyone again and it is sure to be a great conference.
See you soon,
Unit President Wilton Unit 163
- Saturday morning visit each chairmen’s round table for a mini workshop ALA programs. Visit 3/4 of the tables and be eligible for a drawing
- Sunday morning features National President Janet Jefford and a Question & Answer session.
As you know, President Janet Jefford is going to attend our Winter Conference and she likes to do some sor tof public service when she goes places, so I’m asking each of you to bring something along to Winter Conference for the Ruth Meier Hospitality House and she, Marlys and I will visit the shlter and deliver the “stuff”. Please be North Dakota proud and bring something. The list of their needs is in my other article (see December Message).
