NDGA 2014 Convention Information

July 12-13, 2014 - Wellington, Kansas

2014 show card The 2014 Convention Chairperson is Pam Meyer. She was also the Chairperson for the 2013 convention. She will be looking for volunteers to work at the Convention, and will be naming a Display Coordinator to handle the displays. Send her an email if you're willing to help.

The schedule should be similar to past Conventions, with a general membership meeting on Saturday afternoon, about a half hour after the glass show closes. Seminars on various topics will be presented during the Convention hours, and you know there will be a fantastic array of displays from individual collections. We will post the latest information from the Convention Chairmen as it comes in to us, so check back for updates periodically.

In case there is any confusion, ALL GLASS LOVERS ARE WELCOME. You do NOT have to be a member of the NDGA to attend this Convention. Come one and all, have some fun, buy some glass and learn a whole lot about American-made glassware. Although the organization name contains the words "Depression Glass", be assured that there will be all kinds of American glass represented.

Schedule of Events

The Convention will be held at the High School in Wellington, Kansas, shown at right. Wellington is also the home of the NDGA National Glass Museum, and that is no coincidence. The NDGA invites everyone who attends the Convention to stop by and check out YOUR Museum. The high school is located at 1700 E 16th Street in Wellington.

Wellington HS

The show and sale will open at 10:00am on Saturday, July 12. It will run until 5:00pm, after which there will be a half-hour break, followed by the Annual Membership Meeting of the NDGA (about 1½ hours). Newly elected Board members and Officers will be introduced and sworn in. All NDGA members may participate in the meeting. On Sunday, July 13, the Convention opens at 11:00am and closes at 4:00pm.

We are honored to announce that Myrna Garrison will be our special guest author. Her knowledge of the Imperial Glass Company is outstanding. Myrna and Bob Garrison have authored several books covering the candlewick pattern, Imperial milk glass, and Imperial rare patterns.
