Items Needed For Silent Auction

We will be having a silent auction at the WRAMTA Conference in April.

if you know of a local or national business that would love some great advertising, the WRAMTA Conference is a wonderful opportunity.

Contact Emily Schmid with your items for the silent auction.

Volunteers Needed for WRAMTA Conference

We need volunteers to assist in staffing the registration table during the conference.  The time slots are not very long, only about an hour or two.  We want the table to be manned at all times so this will require several volunteers to accomplish.

Please contact Patty Ahler and let her know your availability.

Thanks for serving!
