AMS Auction in Antwerp
During our annual meeting (this year at the World Congress of Malacology in Antwerp, Belgium), we will, as usual, host the AMS Auction of molluscan books and paraphernalia (no specimens) for all Congress participants. This event raises the necessary funds for our student programs, and provides a fun-filled evening for all involved, even if you don’t buy a thing! Paul Callomon will return as our auctioneer this is something you don’t want to miss! Because we are meeting overseas, transporting books and other items for the auction presents us with a challenge. For this reason, I am asking each attending member to bring or send at least one item for the auction. Please dig deeply and generously surely everyone has an unneeded book or something malacologically silly to contribute! and please notify me about your item beforehand so that we can plan appropriately. An approximate value of your item would help us tremendously as well. Your participation in this entertaining and worthwhile event will be heartily appreciated and will help AMS present its best face to the world!
If you wish to send your item to Antwerp, please do so no later than May 30, clearly mark the parcel “Hold for AMS Auction,” and send to:
