ESSAGE
Greetings to all our IACA
members.
Do you see our changes? We
have condensed the large for-
mat IACA Journal to this new
four page IACA Journal. It will
not only save money, but will
give you more focused news
and information about IACA,
our events, and our members.
This is a direct benefit of your
membership. We are
constantly looking for ways to
stretch your membership dol-
lars and help you market your
business.
In addition to this publication,
you should check the IACA
website,
,
fre-
quently! It will always provide
you with the most up to date
information on shows and ac-
tivities. Its members-only area
is filled with tips and infor-
mation about the Indian arts
industry.
ENJOY!
