Dine-Arounds – Sign Up Early

Dine-Arounds – Sign Up Early!

There is a lot going on in Pittsburgh Thursday night. Stanley Cup Finals, Three Rivers Arts Festival, regular cultural events…

Dine Around Sign Up

Our Spring Conference Dine-A-Rounds on Thursday night offer six choices of interesting and diverse restaurants led by an enthusiastic PA Presenters’ host!  For those unfamiliar with the concept, the intent is to provide a platform for dinner on-your-own, but shared with colleagues attending the conference.  There’s no agenda or presentation; conversation is casual!  Sign-up sheets are posted online and will be […]


Time to Register

You may not know this, but I am obsessed with numbers, stats and time. I panic if I think I will be late for anything and like to help others not suffer as I do, by reminding them of deadlines and other important dates and times.

I am writing now, to help you remember two upcoming important dates (that I have conveniently made into one date)..

Early Registration Discount and the Last day of the Hotel Block end on May 9th. 

The cost of the conference is only $175 until May 9th. The regular conference registration is $200. Register Now […]

MAPAM State of Mind

By BlogMaster RP


It was suggested that I should attach a “glam” shot to my blogs – like our esteemed president, Ms. Kendall did with her blog (not to say that Ms. Kendall’s picture was a “glam” shot. I’m certain she looks just that perfect each and every day when she enters her office.)

Well … here you go.   This is me, glamourous isn’t it!  OK, we’ll talk about the glam part later. Because the real point of this Blog is: “How Do You Prepare For A Conference?”

If you’ve had the pleasure of sitting with me […]

It Ain’t Easy Being Green…

It Ain’t Easy Being Green… By Randall Presswood.
From arts to garbage and back to arts again – and keeping it green.

I know you all will find this hard to believe…I sometimes marvel at it myself! Hard as it is to accept, I haven’t always lived and worked in Pennsylvania. Yeah, right?!  In fact, way back in the mid 80’s, I worked in up-state New York for the SUNY system of higher education.  The weather always sucked (sorry  SUNY – but it did), so I knew I was not going to spend forever under the dreary grey skies of upstate […]
