The Board of Directors has done several things to encourage people to exhibit.
A monetary award of $200 is given to the Best of
Show winner to offset expenses to take the exhibit and enter it in ANA competition.
Exhibit rules were revised to be more in line with
ANA rules to make the transition from regional to national exhibiting easier.
Since 2001, awards contain an
actual coin or token to make them worth something - not just another plaque.
New display cases were purchased to standardize
exhibit sizes and make them more attractive.
Exhibits have been taken out of the back of the
bourse area and put closer to the entrance so the public will take
notice of the displays. (They are now in a separate room just across
from the entrance, at the annual PNNA spring convention in Tukwila, WA.)
What more can PNNA do to encourage exhibiting? If
you have any suggestions or ideas, please let us know.
