I am happy to announce that designer Karen Tran accompanied by her daughter Aileen Tran, will be joining the Chapel Designers in NYC on March 17th 2013.  Karen and Aileen have agreed to design with the Chapel Designers on Tuesday March 19th. Much of this is possible because of my amazing friend David Beahm who is allowing me to not only bring students into his production offices but an additional design team. Finding design space for a group this big in NYC can be quite the challenge and none of this would be coming together if it were not for David. In addition to presenting on Tuesday, Karen and Aileen will be in attendance for the entire conference and they will participate in our group discussion day.

I am also happy to report that graphic designer Rachel Merkle will be joining us in NYC. Rachel helped to create The Full Bouquet blog and she is currently working on new websites for several of the Chapel Designers. Rachel will be available to speak with the designers about updates or graphic changes that they may need to make to enhance their business websites or blogs. Rachel will explain some basic things that we need to be doing to freshen up our web presence. The conference will also offer guidance from a financial adviser, many of us are small business owners and we need to begin saving for our future. We will also have a social media assistant at the conference if any of the designers need help with twitter, facebook, blogging, and linking. Many designers have requested help in these areas and I want you to know that I am listening to your requests, and I am doing my very best to oblige. I want to make the 2013 conference even better!!!

Please read the bio of our latest speaker and know that we are very lucky to have Karen and Eileen!!!
