Conference Notes

The September 30, October 1, 2, 3 (2015) Norman Mailer Society Conference in Provincetown is fast-approaching. Currently, we expect 85 to 90 people to be in attendance. This will be our best attendance ever.

This email (and future emails) is going out to everyone who will be attending: presenters and guests alike. Attached to this email you will find:

I am asking that you PLEASE make payments for 2015 Memberships and Conference Registrations by September 16. I will send individual reminders to those of you who may owe dues and / or conference fee payments. Please make every effort to get your payments to me by September 16 or sooner.

For those of you making presentations and needing multi-media support, please contact me IMMEDIATELY. I will need to know what technology you will be bringing and what you will precisely need us to have available for you.

We would like to include a conference program insert of the biographies of conference presenters, panelists, and moderators. By September 9, please email to Mike Lennon a brief 50 word maximum biography (anything over 50 words will be trimmed).

All Standard / Standard Inn / Waterview rooms are ALL BOOKED. Attached is the list of available rooms for you to reserve (see below). Please contact the Inn NOW if you wish to stay there.

The devil is in the details, and the details begin now. My one and only goal is to make your conference experience a memorable one. Expect periodic emails from me as we move closer to the conference dates.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. If I don’t immediately have the answer, I will get it. I will be monitoring emails constantly, even while I am sleeping.

We want this conference to be “electric” and “exciting” and “exceptional.”

Provincetown awaits you!
