Saturday, July 15
5:00-6:30 p.m.
Austin Convention Center / Exhibit Hall 4


This year's Annual Meeting will kick off with an Opening Reception on the exhibit hall floor. This light hors d'oeuvres and cocktail reception, featuring local favorites, is a great way for attendees to network with one another and visit exhibitors without scheduling conflicts—allowing plenty of time for dine-arounds and receptions to follow.

Featured at this year's event is the Typewriter Rodeo—give them a topic, they'll give you a poem! The poets of Typewriter Rodeo will take whatever word or phrase you give them, then type out an original poem on a vintage typewriter, right there on the spot. It's a conference keepsake you won't soon forget.

Attendees purchasing a Conference or Per-Day (Saturday) Registration will receive a ticket to this event; additional guest tickets are available for purchase.
