Hi,
My usual email, ktwnldy.az.us has been recieving but not
sending mail for a month now, so I am using this. It is good to be able to
respond to you all again! :)

In response to:

>>>I don't like the feeling that the conference is a money raiser for the
NAEA.
Presenters get nothing, not even reduced registrations, Vendors are charged a
lot for a booth, many of the presentations charge a $25 fee which goes to
NAEA and not the presenter. <<<<

This year I did not get to go to the conference, and am green with envy of all
of you who did. A friend of mine was on the conference planning committee in
the past used to fill my ear with how the association usually lost money on
conferences. They have to pay mega bucks for the convention areas, Keynote
Speaker Fees, Travel, projection equipment, coffee breaks, etc, etc, etc. The
DC conference is a larger draw compared to some of the others due to the
number of art teachers in the area and the multitude of great art experiences
there.

As a member of NAEA, I believe you have the right to ask for a statement of
costs... it might change your understanding of the situation.
