What a wonderful couple of weeks! A big thank you to PACCIN for a fantastic conference last week in Bentonville.  It was so amazing to see many people again, meet new people, and listen to some fantastic presentations.  I hope you are all getting out there.  I had some great talks with the vendors at the conference and have added many of them to this issues resource list.  Conferences are a great way to start a new relationship with a company that can be an asset to you for years.

Take a look at the articles in this issue and see what is going on in the art pro community.  I am proud to say that my second article has come out in Art World News.  I am really having fun working with the Art Handlers Network to publish these articles and I hope you all take a minute to check out their site.  Also, take a look at the Freelancers Union in the resources section.  This is a fantastic group with local chapters all over.  If you are working as a freelancer they can help you with advice on everything from insurance to contracts.

While the week of travel was a blast, it did keep me from getting a podcast published.  I hope you will take a moment and catch up on past episodes.  Especially listen to the one on networking to get tips on how to get back into the swing of meeting up with folks.  More episodes are headed your way soon!  Whatever you’re doing…Get Back Out There!
