2017 Silent Auction and Etsy Shop

We are pleased to announce the annual ARLIS/NA Conference Silent Auction and the continuation of the online Etsy shop! This year’s conference theme is “Arts du Monde,” one that embraces New Orleans and its diverse heritage. We are looking forward to an outstanding array of items for you to bid on in remembrance of your time in NOLA.

As in years past, the onsite silent auction will feature donated items from our generous chapters and sponsors. All conference attendees will get a chance to bid over the course of two days in the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Exhibit Hall.

Building upon last year’s efforts, the Etsy.com shop will showcase handmade crafts, artworks, and other wares from our talented membership. The Etsy Shop will allow those not able to attend the conference to support ARLIS/NA, as well as give everyone another opportunity to shop for unique items.

The proceeds from any sales will be returned to ARLIS/NA to support travel awards, membership, professional development, and other organizational initiatives.

Individuals and organizations, local or international, are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Registration is open!

Good day ARLISians!

Registration for our 2017 ARLIS-NA annual conference is open! Take a look and make your plans now to join your colleagues February 5-9 in beautiful New Orleans.

The Early Bird Registration period lasts through December 23, 2016, so take advantage of it and register as soon as you are able. Another reason to register soon is that those wonderful Tours will fill up fast!

Keep in mind that:

  • As of December 24, fees will increase by $100.00 for regular, institutional, business, and affiliate organization members (from $280 to $380).
  • Other types of membership and non-member registration fees will also increase at this time (non-member fees include a one-year membership to ARLIS-NA, so if you are not yet a member, it’s quite a deal!).

After January 23, registration is available on-site only.

Cheers,

E. Lee Eltzroth, ARLIS-NA 2017 Publicity Coordinator
