As we’ve done in the past couple of reunions, we will we are offering an additional incentive to register early. For those registering prior to 1 February 2019, there will be a drawing for a free room. This does not take the place of the traditional free room raffle. We will still have the normal free room raffle (depending on having enough attendees) plus the 50-50 drawing. To help defray expenses, we will have a silent auction of items donated by individuals or Chapters. If you have something to donate and have a minimum auction price, please inform Lori to so designate it and assure that it is not sold at too low a value.


#45 promises to be a West Coast reunion to remember, but to make it happen we need sponsors. Each Chapter can help by buying an ad in the Reunion Booklet. A business card size ad will run $10. If you have a small business, this is a good buy. We would like to see those with businesses sign up for the $10 business ad, or just a comment on a personal level. A quarter-page ad will cost $20. Half-page advertisements are $40, and a full-page ad is $80. Most Chapters get full page ads, which is appreciated. Please send your advertisement and payment to:
