Club Support for Mentorfest

Sep 25, 2007

Greetings Affiliated Club Newsletter Editors!

As you may have heard by now (at least, we hope), Mentorfest 2017 is next month (October 21, 2017) in Irving.

We are still looking for contacts from clubs who are coming to set up a table and participate in the activities and festivities.  We've got a lot of great presentations lined up (although there's still room for more), but we've gotten very little response from clubs that will be helping and representing.

All of the information for Mentorfest is on the NTX section website at:

There's also a flyer you can download and print for distribution.  If your newsletter hasn't yet gone out for next month, please include Mentorfest in your next edition, and encourage your members to come and learn, help, and participate.

For any questions, concerns, inquiries, or confirmation, please use the email address: 

That address will forward your message to ALL the Mentorfest board members.  He hope to see you and your club's banner there!
