Programming Committee Meeting

I would like to extend an invitation to all members who are interested in being on the Programming Committee to attend a meeting next Tuesday, July 15 at 7:00 p.m. (sharp!) at the NOPA Gallery, 1111 St. Mary St.

The Programming Committee is responsible for developing exhibitions, educational events, public forums, and exchange programs with other similar institutions.

The primary focus of this meeting will be to firm up our 2009 Exhibition Calendar and form subcommittees for each show. See the attached pdf for the exhibit schedule as it now stands. We need to revisit this schedule and discuss the possibility of having an invitational exhibit next year and, therefore, replacing one of these shows.

If you are unable to attend and want your ideas to be heard please email me @ thomnola@yahoo.com. I will present them for you.

Remember, your voice is the voice of the Photo Alliance so come and be heard. Look forward to seeing you there!

Thom Bennett
VP of Programming

P.S. There will be pizza! BYOB.
