Next ZOOM CONVENTION

Saturday March 27th

With our scheduled 2020 Cape Cod Convention being canceled like most everything else last year, we decided that although we couldn't meet in person, we could get together on Zoom. So our first-ever virtual convention was held on October 23rd, and it worked out great!

It was received really well
, everyone adapted to the Zoom technology, and we were able to catch up with many current, former, and new Wallace Nutting enthusiasts! We had a full agenda including our Annual Meeting, two Presentations, the Buy/Sell Marketplace, and even the Hospitality Suite.

This was also an opportunity for people to participate who haven't been able to attend the "live" conventions. Because it was a win-win for all, we've decided to have Zoom meetings more frequently, and we're planning our next one on Saturday morning, March 27th.

Details and agenda to be announced...please check back.

Highlights from the 2019 Convention

Another outstanding fall event, and this time in early October with our destination being the lovely and historic Saratoga Springs. It was a great few days where members enjoyed the expanded Markeplace, excellent Presentations, and a Tour of the historic North Broadway estates/mansions. Aside from our annual Club Dinner, most of us also gathered at another excellent restaurant on Thursday evening. Always a highlight of the event is that everyone enjoys the camaraderie with old friends, and meeting new people, when we come together at these yearly gatherings.

Highlights from the 2017 Convention

This year's convention was held back at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ft Washington, PA. It was a great weekend where members enjoyed two days of Wallace Nutting events and camaraderie, beginning with Friday's Auction and Hospitality Suite. Saturday began with the Buy/Sell/Trade set-up followed by the Business Meeting; Presentations; and Show & Tell. Saturday afternoon found us in Doylestown for lunch and tours at the Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle. The day was then capped off by our annual and always-fun Club Dinner, followed by a final get-together in the Hospitality Suite.

Highlights from the 2016 Fall Conference

We held a very special 3-day event from Sept. 22-24 in conjunction with the Webb House's 100th Anniversary Wallace Nutting exhibition in Wethersfield, CT. Unique Webb House tours were offered, as well as Friday's Wallace Nutting Auction, and capped off with Saturday's Conference where members offered WN items for sale, presentations were made, and historic Nutting books displayed. We enjoyed seeing our Member friends, and also meeting new people interested in Wallace Nutting and sharing knowledge!
