You spoke, we listened. Last year we had to make the difficult decision not to PRINT the PANORAMA. We received mixed comments and total understanding. But all in all, everyone missed the traditionally printed PANORAMA. This year, the conference ended up in the black; & we are thrilled to announce that we took the PANORAMA to press TODAY. The tentative mail drop date is January 6, 2012. Watch your mailboxes! If you have moved or do not have your address in your member profile you will not receive one in January. Please go to the Member Profile section and update your information so we can get one in the mail to you after February. (Drop a comment here to let me know you have updated your contact information.)
It is that time of year when we think of celebrating the Holidays. It is also time to think about the needs of your IAPP. We are approaching the time to elect new officers and directors of your Board. We need members to volunteer their services in order to maintain the viability of our Association. We must have members willing to step up to assist in running IAPP and planning future activities. This does mean that we need you to offer a few hours each month to work on tasks as determined by your President and Officers. So in this season of giving, please give a serious thought toward volunteering yourself as a nominee for a Board position, either as an Officer or Director.
Tonight we had a nice board meeting. A couple of quick notes:
- The conference was not only enjoyable but profitable as well.
- We are coming to the end of this Board’s tenure and need replacements.
If you wish to volunteer, contact John McCarthy
- We are planning the next conference in the great NW. If you want to volunteer to be on the planning committee contact: Glenn Cope
Keith Cooper shared this with us! thanks Keith!
Michael Westmoreland (our latest Lifetime member) is turning 80. Instead of sitting back and taking it easy, he is having an exhibition.

But not PPA? Why not? A new benefit was just rolled out:
