ISHA News: Tickets on Sale for ISHA Awards, March 24 in Sun Valley
Plans are firm for Skiing History Week in Sun Valley, March 23-27, 2022. Tickets are on sale now for ISHA’s 30th Annual Awards Banquet at the Sun Valley Lodge. ISHA’s schedule includes the John Fry Lecture evening on Wednesday, March 23; a Retro Ski Day and Roundhouse Luncheon on Thursday, March 24, follow by a reception and Awards Banquet that evening; and an Historians’ Colloquium on Friday morning, March 25. In addition, ISHA will host a ski film festival at the Sun Valley Opera House. The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame holds its Induction Gala on Saturday, March 26 (an earlier Hall of Fame Induction will be held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, on March 5).
Sun Valley requires that masks be worn indoors. In addition, both ISHA and the Hall of Fame will require proof of Covid19 vaccination for admission to banquets and other indoor events.
ISHA Fundraising: Year-end Giving and Tax Planning
At the end of October, ISHA’s generous donors had reached 52 percent of our fundraising goal for 2021—typical for this point in our annual year-end campaign. Member dues provide about 20 percent of the revenue needed to produce, print and mail Skiing History magazine, conduct the annual Awards Program and maintain the website skiinghistory.org. The balance of revenue comes from tax-deductible individual donations, corporate sponsorships and income from endowment-fund investments. Contributions may be tax deductible regardless of whether you itemize or take standard deductions, and gifts of appreciated stock may incur tax advantages. Please consult your tax adviser.
Check Your Mailing Label!
If the mailing label on your copy of Skiing History magazine bears the word AUTO, it means that you are enrolled in ISHA’s Auto-Renew Program. If that’s the case, you need take no action regarding membership renewal—that will happen automatically, and we will NOT send a membership renewal reminder. If your mailing label does NOT show the word AUTO, it means that your membership will expire on the date shown on the label, and we’ll send a renewal notice with the magazine one issue ahead of expiration.
