Photo Education for Today and Tomorrow
It is an honor and privilege to be the President of PIEA. I would like to extend a warm welcome to the attendees of the 2010 PIEA Education Conference in Anaheim, California. In addition, a sincere thanks to PMA sponsors for their ongoing support.
It’s early fall and the hustle and bustle of a new school year is in the air. I’m trying to imagine what February 19, 2010 in Anaheim, California will be like. One thing is certain: I can imagine energy much like the start of a new school year infused with California sunshine. The annual PIEA conference will be buzzing with the chatter of old friends and fellow educators, paired with the excitement of new friendships in the making. Undoubtedly, the topic of conversation will be how PIEA has influenced education, teaching, and photography. Two strengths that immediately come to my mind are the people and the juried exhibition. We are a great organization for engaging professors, teachers, professionals, artists, enthusiasts, and communities throughout the world. I’m certain the 2010 conference will leave a lasting memory.
