NEWS FROM NATIONAL
—Jain Lemos, ASPP Executive DirectorAnother fantastic issue of The Picture Professionalhas landed. We love our advertisers who make it all possible to bring you great images and information each quarter! Many have commented that the new cover design took them by surprise—most pleasantly!
One member wrote to us:
"I went to check the mail area at work today and saw this magazine on a shelf. I immediately thought, 'that looks pretty cool. Maybe it’s for me?' I had to laugh when I realized it was TPP. I didn’t even recognize it! I love the cover and the overall re-design."
If you have not received your issue by the end of the month, please contact me directly to be sure your membership is up-to-date and your address is correct.
Next up is our first electronic version of the magazine, and this incarnation will be accessible for our members in May. We want to give a special shout-out to CORBIS IMAGES who has graciously become our magazine's digital edition sponsor for 2012.

OUT AND ABOUT
President Michael Masterson has the latest chapter event updates in this month's President's Corner. If you are attending Visual Connections in Chicago on April 26 at the Chicago Cultural Center, I will see you there along with Doug Brooks, our National Education Co-Chair, and our awesome Midwest chapter board and members. The following day we'll be at their All Day Education Event, "Charting a New Course: The Changing Landscape of Image Rights." Please reserve your space now via their Eventbrite registration page!PLUS! ASPP and Visual Connections are delighted to have Robert E Potter III(aka REP3) on hand at the Chicago image expo to take your portrait. Robert will take a photo suitable for your FaceBook, LinkedIn or resumé; or, just for fun, he’ll be bringing a selection of costumes and disguises. Bring a business card and your photo will be emailed to you compliments of REP3, ASPP and Visual Connections.
Chris Farley got his job at SNL with a headshot that Robert sent at the request of Lorne Michaels. Bonnie Hunt once said that she never needed another headshot after the ones Potter crafted for her because, as a result of his images and her resulting fame, her agent now sends out a reel should someone not know her work. Who knows, maybe you’ll become famous too!
Please stop by our table to say hi, have Robert snap you and catch up on what's new at ASPP!
