Sponsorships for Young Feminists Conference, Hurray!

A Few Sponsorships with more on the way!
Tight budget? Generous long-time members of NOW in Virginia have offered to sponsor some rooms, and some fees. More may be on the way, but here’s what we have now:
  • 2 rooms are covered, rooms sleep  up to 4.
  • Student members of Women Matter at VCU, fees can be covered. Email Simone, WebEditor@vanow.org,  and I’ll get you in touch with the donor.
  • A donation of $200 has been made for rooms or for fees.
  • More may be on the way, we are beating the bushes! I’ll keep you updated.
Again, this offer is for young feminists, on a tight budget (in school / underemployed).
To contact us about these sponsorships, email me at the address above (or just reply to this email). Let me know how to contact you, and I’ll get your request to the executives at VA NOW in charge of these sponsorships.
It’s late notice, I know, but we’re working on it!!
Hotel registration deadline
is tomorrow, March 27th! 
For the $119 price, 4 occupants.
You can still reserve a room after this date, but the conference price will expire on Friday.
We know many of our members are used to registering on arrival, since all our schedules are difficult to predict.

Please, don’t wait this time.
The planning and logistics of this conference are far more complicated than in recent years. For our planning purposes, having your name on the list early will help us a lot!
