Oliver Building Clock

As you know by now, we are adding something new to this conference and it is the participation by students. Students who are studying to be our future colleagues.

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 […]

Reaching to Connect!

After a successful trip to Pittsburgh this week for our PA Presenters Southwest Regional Meeting (It was GREAT to see everyone there!) and our board meeting/site visit to the Embassy Suites, I wanted to blog about a piece of art that I found in Mount Washington and how I thought it was a perfect tie-in to our conference in June.

This bronze statue, Points of View, sits high on Grand View Scenic Byway overlooking “The Point” where the three rivers meet in […]

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 […]
