Rebate for new bookstores at Fall Conference

Bookstores who have never attended get a free ticket package and a $100 hotel rebate. Purchase your full conference package then check in with NAIBA staff at the conference registration desk. Following the conference, submit your hotel bill to NAIBAbooksellers@gmail.com. Rebates will be processed after the conference.

Holiday Catalog: Rebate for Imprinting

Bookstores that purchase a full ticket packet for the Fall Conference before September 1 will receive a $50 rebate on their holiday catalog imprinting. The rebate will be sent by NAIBA to the store at year-end.

Holiday Catalog: Credit for Displays & Features

NAIBA offers a $50 credit to any store that sends us photos of catalog displays, newsletter articles featuring the holiday catalog, etc. Email us proof of in-store and online promotions of the catalog titles. We’ll credit your store $50 towards any NAIBA program – membership, event registration, etc.

Binc Scholarship to the NAIBA Fall Conference

Binc has generously awarded two Fall Conference scholarships to NAIBA. Two lucky first-time conference attendees will receive $250 each to cover travel and hotel expenses, and NAIBA will sweeten the scholarship by awarding each a complimentary ticket packet. The winners will be chosen at random. Fill out the raffle "card" for NAIBA by August 24 to be entered into the drawing.

**Do not delay in making your hotel reservation for the drawing, since rooms may be gone by then!

** You can hold off registering for the conference. If you don't win the raffle, you will still have time to get the discounted ticket package. If you've already registered, we will issue you a refund.

NAIBA Offering a WI Diversity Scholarship

NAIBA has funded a diversity scholarship to ABA's Winter Institute for a staffer from one of it's member bookstores.

Interested booksellers should email NAIBA the following:

Name, email & name of store

Number of years in bookselling

Diverse-identification 

One paragraph essay that discusses: why you want to attend WI; what you bring to your store & the industry; and what you hope to gain by attending.

Number of times you've been to Winter Institute (although this has no impact on the scholarship).

Booksellers who have won a scholarship of any kind to Winter Institute in the past three years are ineligible for the NAIBA diversity scholarship, as are booksellers who win any other scholarship to the 2019 Winter Institute. Winner must be from a store that is both a NAIBA and ABA member in good standing.

DEADLINE: August 24, 2018
