NOMMAEduCATiONFOuNdATiON In Partnership with the National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association NEF Wants You to be ready for METALfab2016 NEF Chair, Lynn Parquette End of year donation Request As chair of the NoMMA Education Foundation, i want to thank NoMMA members for their support this year. At this time, we would like to offer you the opportunity to make an end of year donation and receive tax savings. Because of the income tax charitable deduction, individuals who make their gift donations and itemize them by december 31, 2015 can reduce their income taxes. it is because of these gifts that NEF is able to fulfill its purpose. donations can be made online at www.nomma.org, mailing a check (NEF, Po Box 492167, Lawrenceville, GA 30049), or faxing a credit card donation form to 888-279-7994. donation forms can be found on the NoMMA website at www.nomma.org. A brief form is included at the end of this column. METALfab2016 Education Program Along with the outstanding line up of NoMMA members presenting at METALfab2016, NEF is providing a very special presenter Steve Baker, The Great Game of Business. Steve co-wrote the update of the #1 bestseller, The Great Game of Business. Known for his engaging and irreverent style, Steve coaches fast growing companies on open-Book Management, Strategy and Execution, and Leadership and Employee Engagement. having spent two decades struggling to help small business owners reach their goals without access to key business metrics, going 'open-Book' changed his life. he serves on the Board of the National Center for Employee ownership and SRC's ownership Culture initiative. Steve is a career marketing and branding professional and is an award-winning designer. Steve will be with us on Thursday, March 17 and Friday, March 18. he will also have a booth in exhibits so that he can spend time with individual attendees. i would also like to thank the METALfab Education Program Co-chairs Curt Witter and doug Bracken along with the NoMMA Education Presenter, Dave Filippi Co-Presenter, Mark O'Malley Committee (Rob Rolves, Roger Carlsen, and Lynn Parquette) for all of their hard work to create the METALfab2016 education program.

Whether you donate an item for auction or you bid on items, both are very important to the success of this project. We have had fabulous items donated through the years, and we depend on you to help us continue this great tradition. The Auction Committee is requesting donations of auction items which may include: Metal sculpture(s), a garden gate, hand-forged furniture, books, artwork or antiques; Non-metal items such as tools, gift baskets, gift certificates/coupons, jewelry, electronics, clothing, food/wine, presentation drawings, the use of a condo at the beach or airline tickets; specialized services to create a custom one-of-a-kind item for the winning bidder; or be creative - the sky's the limit! Every donated item will help the foundation to operate so that it can provide quality education for the ornamental and miscellaneous metals industry through the METALfab education program, continuing education classes, video productions, educational publications, as well as to support special projects important to the industry. if you wish to contribute an item(s) for this event, please go to www.nomma.org for a donation form.
