“Focus on Success”
It’s that time again! Who would have thought that a year could go by so fast, but we find ourselves again at an exciting time of the year for CTPPA. The 63rd Annual Convention and Print Competition will be held on March 8-12, 2012 at the Hartford/Windsor Marriot Airport located at 26 Day Hill Rd, Windsor, CT.
Have you blocked the time from your schedule? Have you registered yet? Have you made your hotel reservations yet? Don’t miss this golden opportunity for you to “Focus on Success”. If you are a CTPPA member, this convention is FREE! Yes, you heard it right, FREE. Where else can you hear Matthew Jordan Smith (sponsored by Sony), Tim and Bev Walden, M.Photog, Cr., Larry Lourcey, M.Photog, Cr., CPP (sponsored by WHCC), Bob Davis (sponsored by Canon), and Kevin Kubota (sponsored by WHCC, Asuka Books, and Kubota Imaging Tools) all in one space for FREE! If you aren’t a member of Connecticut’s premier association for professional photographers, check out the low prices for a full day of programming and also don’t miss our Free Sunday sponsored by Canon. New this year is our Pre-Con programming featuring California’s Lawrence Chan on Thursday March 8,2012. His program is only $50.00 for members and guests.
The Hartford/Windsor Marriott has kept their word and kept their price low at $89.00 per night. Don’t miss the fun as our hospitality suite keeps the networking and fun going late into the night! Saturday Night our past president’s party is a suprise this year and for only $20.00 per person will keep you dancing all night long. Another change we made is the Sunday night Awards Reception which is FREE for members and only $25.00 for guests. Make sure that you register for this event as there is a deadline, so we can make sure we have enough food! The format has changed and it will be finger foods, a cash bar and theater style seating for the awards so that everyone can cheer on all the award winners. Who knows it could be…..YOU!
