October 1, 2021 WNCC Zoom Convention Agenda


The Zoom "waiting room" will be open at 6:15 PM so attendees are welcome
to join anytime during those 15 minutes before we start the meeting at 6:30 PM.

Introduction: President, Jan Liberatore will welcome everyone and Moderator, Sue Ivankovich, will discuss how we'll manage the meeting to help everyone better understand the process, and then invite all attendees to introduce themselves.
Presentation #1: Diane Thompson Naylor - "Thompson Art Company Portland, ME - Two Fred Thompson's"
1st Round of
BUY & SELL

We will go around to participants who are interested in showing what they have for Sale…or what they'd like to Buy...or to Share great finds.

  • If you're Selling:
    • Have your item(s) ready to hold up to the camera to show the group and specify your price for each piece. We recommend making a sign that has your name, email & phone number on it to display so people can contact you.

    • If you're able to create a slide show of available items, we can set up "screen share" for attendees to view your show. Each slide should include a price, and also your contact information.

  • If you're Buying: Let the group know your "wish/interest list" and plan to hold up a contact information sign.

If someone is immediately interested in an item for sale, they can either speak up, raise their hand, or post a message to the seller in the Chat window.

All transactions are between the Buyers and Sellers where they arrange the details of final pricing, shipping, etc. after the meeting.

5-Minute Break  
Presentation #2: Jan Liberatore - "Exploring Wallace Nutting's Old New England Pictures Book - A Rare Glimpse Inside". Jan will give you a look inside one of Wallace Nutting's rarest books. The presentation will include both the text and the 34 hand-colored Nutting pictures mounted in the large leather bound book.
2nd Round of
BUY & SELL
Conducted the same as Round #1 for any additional Selling, Buying, or Sharing.
Presentation #3:

Round Table Group Discussion - topic to be announced

Meeting Conclusion
& Informal Chat:
Jan will wrap up the meeting and we'll keep the Zoom platform open if people want to stay on for informal chat in the main meeting room...or break-out rooms for catching up, negotiating, etc.

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.

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!
