The Beat Goes On With A Board of Directors In Transition
With the beginning of a new year, it is time to say good-bye to some retiring IACA Board Members
and to welcome in new ones.
Pahponee, Ron Mitchell and Michael McNair retired from their Board responsibilities at the end of
2013. Each of these individuals contributed hugely in transitioning IACA to an entirely volunteer
organization. These highly talented and dedicated people deserve our gratitude for serving and con-
tributing as they did so well.
At the same time, we are happy to welcome new IACA Board Members to new two year terms on
your board. They include Dee Dowers, Beth Hale, and Dave Eversmann, all collector members;
Jacque Foutz, wholesale member (Jacque has previously served on your Board of Directors); Martin
Seidel, wholesale member; Georgia Fischel, retail member; and Barbara Gonzalez and Earl Plummer,
artist members.
During 2014 your IACA Board of Directors is as diverse as ever with strong talent representing every
sector of the
World’s Leading American Indian Arts Alliance.
We say goodbye and thank you to old friends retiring, and a hearty welcome to our new team of

Pam Lujan-Hauer Accepts New Challenge as President
My name is Pam Lujan-Hauer and I am pleased to begin my tenure as the new IACA-Ed-
ucation Fund President. I am a native of Taos Pueblo, New Mexico, and a traditional and
contemporary potter. I am an alumna of the Institute of American Indian Arts and have
been a member of IACA since 2008.
This will be a learning experience for me, as well as a challenge, which I am honored to take
up on behalf of our organization. In the coming year we will continue to educate and inform,
and encourage the ongoing positive impact IACA-EF has in the Native Arts world.
I would like to thank everyone for their continued support of IACA-EF.
Your contributions are vital to our organization.
