The Countdown Begins

The Desert Dreams Conference is only days away and we hope you are all as excited as us.
The Desert Dreams Conference has always been considered one of the best RWA Chapter conferences around and this year is no exception. The committee, headed by Cathi Lombardo and Patti Osback, have been diligently working to bring you an experience you will not want to forget.

You can find all of the information about the conference by following the link on the sidebar.

After opening the conference on Friday night with several wonderful workshops we will meet at the main dining room for a "genre-themed" dinner. All guests and attendees are welcomed to dress in character. The dinner tables will each be set up to represent a genre and will be hosted by some of our wonderful speakers.
