Steps to run the raffle at a WiG conference
(Revised November 2005; Updated 2014)
Note: This needs to happen only once every three years or when the conference relocates to a new site.
Subject: call for WiG conference raffle donations
Dear WiG members,
Last year's raffle during the WiG conference was a success, thanks to all of your donations and to your ticket purchases. Proceeds of the raffle were used to subsidize WiG graduate student travel/expenses. [Note to raffle organizers: fund designation may change. Please confirm with Steering Committee members.]
Please consider making a donation this year. Any kind of donation is welcome even if you do not plan to attend the conference. Last year's donations included items such as copies of recently published books, WiG T-shirts, and graduate student WiG memberships.
If you would like to donate:
1) e-mail both of us, the raffle organizers: firstname.lastname@example.org and xxx.xxx.edu with a description of the item; and
2) indicate whether you plan to bring the item with you to the conference or would prefer to mail it. The mailing address is: xxxx.
If you have any questions, don¹t hesitate to contact either of us.
At the conference:
