2017 Convention - June 21-24
Plans are rapidly coming together for the 2017 National Cambridge Collector's Annual Convention. Our theme this year is ANIMAL HOUSE and the Convention will be held from Wednesday June 21st until Saturday night June 24th.
We have an exciting program planned as well as outstanding glass animal displays of not only Cambridge Glass, but many other depression-era glass makers. Here is the most current program schedule.
Also, there will be an exciting custom tour for NCC members of the Columbus Zoo's The Wilds, located just 21 miles from the National Museum of Cambridge Glass. The first tour will be led by our very own NCC Board Member Sharon Miller, so be one of the first to register. Cost is $30 a person. For more information, check out this article from the April Crystal Ball in PDF form).
Ever search the internet for information on Cambridge Glass? It's a jungle out there! To help you navigate this treacherous land, join us for a Digital Safari led by our Miami Valley Study Group. They will show you how to best drill down to find the information you need and want. Come prepared, this safari will be hands-on and interactive. For more info, see this article from the March 2017 Crystal Ball.
