1991 Convention - Little Rock, AR

The seventeenth Annual NDGA Convention was held in Little Rock, AR. The Convention was decidedly a group effort, led by Chairman Bob Schmidgall. He was assisted by Judy Schmidgall, Tom Purdy, Charlotte Purdy, Esther Mitchell, Scott Dunlap and Jennifer Dunlap. The Display Coordinators were Dorothy Fletcher and Bonnie Koeninger, and the Preview Party Coordinator was Denise Fleming. The event was held at the Hall of Industry. The Saturday night Banquet was held on the Arkansas River (OK, on a boat ...) - a wonderful dinner cruise.

Seminars presented at the 1991 Convention

There were two Seminars presented at the Convention, with the first one presented on both days. Here are the speakers and their topics:
