2012 Conference and AGM update

Lots of information to pass along…

There is still time to register for the Joint Canada-US Richard III Society Conference and AGM being held in Oakville, Ontario the weekend of September 28-30. Owing to the catering requirements however, we will not be accepting conference registrations after TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25. You may scan and email your completed registration form to "tbryce [at] cogeco [dot] ca"  or fax it to 905-634-7857.

Unfortunately, the unsold rooms of our reserved block returned to inventory on August 31, but if you state you are with the Richard III Society, and ask to speak to Becky (Rebecca) Van Clieaf, the Sales and Catering Manager, you should be able to get the conference room rate of $109 Cdn. per night. You must call Becky directly at 905-829-7980.

If you are flying in to Pearson (Toronto) airport, and have not made your own arrangements to get from the airport to the hotel, please contact me immediately at "tbryce [at] cogeco [dot] ca" so we can try to accommodate you.

We are in need of willing hands for the following tasks:
  • Event photographer
  • Three session moderators to introduce and thank speakers
  • Two people to spell off the Sales Officer on the sales table
  • Two assistants to help tally up the silent auction at the end of the AGM
Please email Victoria at "vlmoorshead [at] rogers [dot] com" if you would like to volunteer for any of these tasks.

We will have 10 copies of Dr. Arlene Okerlund’s book, Elizabeth of York, available for purchase at the Conference for $40 Cdn. No doubt, Dr. Okerlund would be happy to sign a copy for you.
We shall also have a few copies of the National Portrait Gallery’s poster of Richard III for sale.  The NPG tell us they are no longer printing and selling this poster, so once they are gone, they’re gone!

We look forward to seeing you later this month!
