having difficulties with newsletter layouts? Can't quite get the
hang of how to work with photos or typesetting? Does that printer
always do something other than what you want it to do? Well, come
on out to Tucson where newsletter editors from across the country
will gather and form into small teams and write, layout, publish,
and distribute two newsletters of our own during the Leadership
Conference August 14‑18.
The VVA Press
Club was established in Greensboro last year. This year's VVA
Press Club activities will be a fantastic opportunity and
experience for all VVA newsletter and newspaper editors in
attendance. We will try to cover as many events as possible,
depending on the number of participants. Each team will have
specific assignments and will be autonomous. The teams will decide
among themselves who is going to do what based on experience and
ability. If you are planning to attend and have a digital camera,
please let me know as soon as possible.

efforts. The ultimate goal is to help each of us who serves as a
VVA newsletter or newspaper editor improve the quality of our
will be given a shirt with the VVA Press Club and VVA logos on it.
If you are planning on attending, please let me know via e‑mail (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org).
We must know no later than July 1 if you plan to attend and what
your shirt size is.
editors should send me their e‑mail and snail‑mail address so I
can add them to our database. This information also will provide
you with access to information on current VVA activities and
events you may want to include in your publication.
forward to working with each of you in Tucson. I expect that we
will learn much from each other and have some fun at the same
time. I am convinced you will not be disappointed. So make your
plans now, and don't miss this opportunity. See you in Tucson!
