2017 CDS/NACDEP Joint Conference Update

May 31,  2017

Greetings NACDEP Members -

It is less than a month until the NACDEP Annual International Conference in Big Sky, Montana June 11-14, 2017. And, it's a joint conference with CDS! We hope to see you there! This conference is shaping up to be a great event with outstanding plenaries, workshops, sessions, posters, tours, and the Silent and Live Auction that raises funds to support the NACDEP Endowment and make it possible to provide scholarships to support the professional development of NACDEP members.

Please know that donors to this year's auction will have the choice of where the proceeds go: NACDEP, CDS or a split of their choosing between the two organizations.

So What Can You Do?

Donate unique auction items that exemplify your local culture. Be creative! Select items that reflect your community and the local culture such as handmade crafts, artisan works, clothing, music, literature, beverages of all kinds, and foods. (No university or organizational swag please.) If you want to ship your item(s) ahead of time or cannot attend the conference, you may ship them to Emilie Drishinski.

Help us plan for and promote the auction in advance. Do you already have auction items in mind? Have you found or made a great item that you can't wait to preview? Send us some pictures! Items received by June 1st will be previewed online. Don't fret if you can't make this timeline - we will accept donations until the start of the conference. Simply complete an auction item donation form and send photographs of your auction item(s) to Linda Lee Blaine.

Make a direct cash donation to the NACDEP Endowment. Donors will be recognized at the conference!

Your donation of a locally made product, participation in the auction, or direct donation is a great way to make a lasting contribution to the NACDEP Endowment and support the continued professional growth of our members through the Scholarship Fund.

The NACDEP Development Committee and Membership Services thanks you for your support!
