New Virtual Component (Member Benefit)
Due to ongoing COVID 19 Restrictions and some membership concerns we are going to have the educational and sharing components of our 2021 Convention online. Video content will be posted in this section of the website closer to Convention dates.
For 2021, our Reunion Events will be July 7th – 10th. The Society Headquarters will again be the Quality Inn & Suites (Formally the Comfort Inn). The Quality Inn is located at 500 Monroe Street in Zanesville, Ohio. The telephone number is 740-454-4144. A Hotel Room Layout is found here. A map showing the location of the Quality Inn is given below. The Quality Inn will set aside a block of rooms, at a reduced rate for Convention attendees. The reserved rooms will be held until at least mid-June. The block of rooms are set up for 2019 so make your reservations early to receive the reduced rate. Please tell the attendant that you are part of the McCoy Pottery Collectors’ Society Group.
A popular feature of the convention is in-room selling. All attendees are invited to bring any J.W. McCoy, Nelson McCoy or Brush-McCoy pottery that they wish to sell and offer their pottery for sale in their hotel room. In-room selling of pottery may occur at any time during the convention at times chosen by the individual sellers. In-Room selling is a major event and many people participate as both buyers and sellers. So, if this will be your first convention, don’t hesitate in bringing those McCoy pieces that you would like to sell. Whether you bring only several pieces or those boxes full of unwanted McCoy’s that you have accumulated over the years, any number is welcome.
