AMICA Minneapolis 2005 Convention Costs
By Frank and Shirley Nix

Frank and I attended the AMICA Convention in Minneapolis, and want to
respond to the disgruntled person who wanted to attend only the mart.

The Conventions depend on the attendees for hotel room nights, meals,
bus trips, and lots of other things.  It wouldn't be fair to have some
people attend only one or two events, because you would end up with
too many non-members or members who were not really interested.

The Minneapolis Convention gave good value for the money, as have
all the conventions we have attended.  It takes a lot of work for a
committee to put on a convention, and any one who wants to argue should
try it.

Perhaps if this person joined AMICA and got involved he would find he
wanted to attend.  However, if he doesn't want to attend even local
meetings there isn't much chance.  I wonder how involved he was when he
was a member of MBSI?

The people in these organizations are the greatest, with common interests
and goals, and it really is a bonus to become involved with them.  You
never know until you try, and this is, in my mind, a worthwhile

One last note, many of the local meetings have marts, too, and everyone
is welcome there.
