NDGA Convention 2002 - Kansas City, MO

John Knox Pavilion The 28th Annual NDGA Convention and Glass Show was held July 18-20 and was sponsored by the "Heart of America Glass Collectors, Inc.", a very active organization in the Kansas City area. The Convention Chairperson was Bev Harris. The 2002 NDGA Convention varied from the familiar format, for this one time only: the Convention was held on Friday and Saturday, with the Membership Annual Meeting and Show Preview on Thursday evening.

The location of the Convention for 2002 was the John Knox Pavilion in Lee's Summit, MO. Lee's Summit is located south and east of Kansas City, MO, and is considered a suburb of Kansas City. The weather was quite warm (and humid), but the Pavilion was nicely air-conditioned and everyone enjoyed the beautiful glass on display and for sale.

Seminars and Speakers

There were four seminars presented in Lee's Summit, two on Saturday and two on Sunday. Here are the Seminar speakers and their topics:

Glass and Pottery Displays

One of the highlights of the NDGA Convention is the fantastic array of displays. These are put on by NDGA members who share their own personal collections with all of us. We thank all of the folks who displayed their collections this year.

The background on all of the pictures is not the greatest - stacks of chairs don't lend themselves well as photo backgrounds. Still, the displays were awesome and you will enjoy the pictures of the wonderful glass and pottery that was shared with all of us.
