Happy New Year and welcome to another exciting year at PPGH!

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as President of PPGH in 2020.  Current board members are listed on our site under About>Board of Directors.  We have a great team working together for the coming year and we hope you will contact us with questions or suggestions.

We always have volunteer positions available for members to serve PPGH.  At the moment, we are looking for someone to create graphics for our monthly programs & workshops.  Let me know if you would like more information about this opportunity.

Texas School registration is January 3rd at 11pm.  There are so many opportunities to learn from knowledgeable instructors that I keep changing my list of classes.  I usually am early to bed, but tomorrow I’ll be sitting at my laptop waiting for 11pm.  Here’s a link to the site:

This month our meeting is on January 14th, the second Tuesday, due to Imaging.  Michael Martinez is our presenter with a PPA merit program starting at 12:30pm. This is your opportunity to learn from the owner of a successful boutique studio. Come join us and learn how to increase your profit from sales and take your business to the next level.  If you cannot attend the day portion, Michael is presenting an evening program 7–9pm during which he will explain his ‘circle of happiness’ & how to use this to your advantage in business. Don’t miss this opportunity to increase your profit.  You can find more information & register on our Home page.

Image competition will be starting a little earlier now, at 5:15 pm to allow our Image Competition Team & Judges  time to review all the images & tabulate scores for the ribbon winning images. If you entered an image, you will be able to sign in before winners are chosen.  By entering image competition, you already are a winner, because you will receive valuable feedback from our judges.

Updated PPA merit program times are:

  • ·         12 pm             Check in Desk Opens
  • ·         12:30 pm       PPA Merit Program Bjegins
  • ·         5:00 pm          Check in desk opens for the evening program
  • ·         5:15 pm          Image Competition begins
  • ·         6:15 pm          Dinner & Social Time
  • ·         7-9 pm            Evening program

Our Fellowship Program Description, Tracking Form & our Submission Form have been updated on our site.  The tracking form is now a copy of the submission form so if you print it and fill it out during the year, it will be easy for you to input your information on the submission form; no more hunting for the right category.  A description of the PPGH fellowship program and the forms can be found under MembersOnly>Fellowship Information.  These awards are available to Professional Active & Lifetime/Honorary members.  Laura will oversee out Fellowship Program this year & will be able to answer questions you may have regarding accumulating points and fellowship awards.

I hope to see you on January 14, 2020.

Kathy Kinser

      In these days there are a large number of people who are unemployed and go out search for jobs. For this purpose they bring in their use to get the good the better work. In this way they earn a lot of money and increase the financial support.
