*Please make sure to bring plenty of your Affiliate EE Program’s Information! (Membership brochures, newsletters, flyers, pictures, etc.) If you have questions please email Brenda at brendasmetcalf@aol.com or call at 740-215-3376.

*Affiliate Auction Items:
NAAEE Affiliate Annual Conference Donation Challenge: Rather than bring a basket full of “stuff” in 2018, why not bring a certificate for HELP?

What services can you offer to do for another Affiliate?
Help write a newsletter? Run a workshop? Assist with citizen science project? Create a promotional video? Scan old photos and documents for their archives? Help with their annual conference? Pump up their social media or website? Send them puppets and teaching props? Grant writing help? Copyright free photos? Nonprofit management help?

PLEASE note: You do not need to bring a certificate for a service from your affiliate. You can always bring an item that has special meaning to your state, province or territory. You could also bring a gift card from one of your favorite local shops. NAAEE will be very appreciative of any item(s) you can donate for the auction. Thanks!
***Please let Brenda know what your affiliate plans to donate so that we can make a comprehensive list of Affiliate Auction Items. (brendasmetcalf@aol.com) ***
