I also thought the selection of speakers for Austin was great. It will be a great convention. :p

The one question I get asked the most is "Where can I learn more?" either about shooting, business, or Photoshop.
While we all have great fun at the parties and while in Austin, the great bars along 8th St (I think that's the right number. Too many beers last time in Austin mades my memory fuzzy),
the really great part about the Convention is the amount of education we all get when we're there. My biggest complaint about being on the Board is all the programs I now miss.

Speaking of parties, The Texas School party will be Saturday night for everyone. We are going to be in a bar on 6th street with live music and alot of fun. It is going to be FREE to anyone who had registered for the convention. Austin is know for it's "Live Music" Even if you do not like the bar sceen, this will be worth seeing, and now all the bars are non-smoking, even a better time.

I'm thinking about being a student volunteer for this event through SPS. I have to wait till I get down to school though, and know my schedule.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Even January isn't too cold to ride your motorcycle to Austin. The Texas Hill Country has some of the best riding in the US, if you find you have too much time on your hands (though the programs should keep us pretty occupied). I plan to ride.... anyone else??

This is my first year as a PPA member. Is Imaging USA open to all members? I was also wondering what the difference is between the Austin event and the San Antonio event? Does anyone have any pointers for me?

Thanks

Ken,
I'm up for a ride...
Not being the ironman you are....I'm whimping out and trailering down there. My trailer is in the shop as we speak getting an expanded metal deck and new lights.

Dear Jaime, first of all, welcome to PPA, and I hope you have many years of a sucessful business, and more importantly, I hope you meet a million of the best souls in the world, who happen to be fellow members!
Now, regarding your Imaging USA questions...being from Texas, I'm taking the liberty to briefly explain that the difference between IUSA in Austin, and the next year, is like having the conference in Boston one year, and Washington D.C. the next.....Texas is a mighty big place, with lots of varieties in our cultures, our landscapes and certainly our foods, and music.....but the ONE thing that will be found anywhere in the state is our open hearts, and our HOSPITALITY.....ask anyone who has ever attended the Texas school, and you'll understand why these two conventions are gonna be a blast, and each quite unique in thier own settings....so, do a little research on the funkiness of Austin, in the magificent Texas Hill Country, and the laid back historical culture that is defientely San Antonio.....You'll never want to go home....so bring your boots, make a friend or three hundred, and come see us now, ya hear? P.S. Texas is derived from the word that means "friends". Oh yea, by the way, the programming will be outstanding too!!!!!!C

I noticed that a lot of the folks who're touting the "festivities" are from down South. Does PPA ever hold it's Annual's in the northern part of this country where some of us who are not as "flush" as you party-goers would have a chance to learn something? :(

PPA used to allow nonmembers to attend the trade show. What is the status of this situation?

I agree with Ken, I rented a Harley for the day in Austin. The Imaging expo is a great way to double as a vacation during the slow months.

As a new member of the PPA team, I am very excited to take part in the Imaging USA convention! This community definately has a passion about the craft of photography and it is apparent in the attention paid by the PPA team!

If I can be of any assistance to the members of OurPPA.com, please do not hesitate to ask.
