SLA MN Holiday Party!

The annual SLA MN Holiday Party is fast approaching! The event is on December 5, 2016 from 5:30 to 8:30, at HGA Architects and Engineers, 420 5th Street North, Suite 100, Minneapolis, MN. The cost of the party is $20 for students, but SLA members have the option to sponsor students (and several donations have already been received). You will still need to register and pay $20, and depending on how many donations are received, there will be a drawing to reimburse students. This event is an excellent networking opportunity (with really good food and drinks). More details can be found here.

Several people have asked about the possibility of a carpool from St. Kate's. Please send us an email if you are interested in carpooling to the party. 

The SLA Student Group is responsible for putting on the Silent Auction to raise money for a St. Kate's student to attend the SLA Conference. We are currently in the process of soliciting donations from alumni, professionals, and businesses. We will need volunteers to help set up the silent auction on the day of the event! Please let us know if you are interested in helping with the silent auction!

This is a really great event, so we hope to see you all there!
