Mark your calendar for 2013 PMA@CES, Jan. 8-11, 2013
After a successful PMA@CES exhibition and conferences in Las Vegas, the leadership of PMA, the Worldwide Community of Imaging Associations, is looking ahead to year full of new programs, events and services.
“This year was one of incredible change in our industry and at PMA,” says 2012-2013 PMA President Allen Showalter, King Photo/Showalter Imaging Group, Harrisonburg, Va. “There seemed to be as much variety in the challenges we faced as there are SKU’s in digital products! As a result, PMA is focused on building our support for all our members with increased communication among members and suppliers.”
Showalter, who returns to PMA presidency after serving in 2008-09, is the association’s first two-term president. Other association officers were elected for the 2012-2013 term: Gabrielle Mullinax, Fullerton Photographics Inc., Fullerton, Calif., was moved to president-elect; Mark Klostermeyer, MCPF, Design Frames LLC, Falls Church, Va., was elected vice president; and Robert L. Hanson, Harold’s Photo Center, Sioux Falls, S.D., is the treasurer. PMA 2010-2012 president Brian Wood, Photovision, Salem, Ore., is a trustee. Jim Esp was elected PMA executive director/secretary.
