WCAF Expo/PPFA Convention Postponed- New 2021 date to be announced later

As many of you may already know from a PFM press release, the 2021 West Coast Art & Frame Expo, originally slated for Jan. 24-27, 2021 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, has been temporarily postponed
owing to the COVID-19 pandemic; the new date will be announced later.

And so our PPFA framing ‘family’ will be unable to get together in January due to the postponement for our Annual Convention that is hosted annually at the WCAF Expo.

While this is disappointing for everyone, we have to keep our framers and suppliers safe during this crisis; and we will hold our Annual PPFA Convention at WCAF once the new dates are available: stay tuned!

We will miss seeing PPFA members in January! However, as always, technology will help our global members stay in touch, through the PPFA CONNECT newsletter, PPFA Framers Corner, Facebook, Twitter, ZOOM study groups, and much more.

The CPF Exam can be taken online by arranging a proctor and location (e.g. library or college); and the MCPF exam can be arranged locally. We will hold another CPF Exam Study Group in early 2021, date TBA. Email
certification@PPFA.com to get on the list. Recertification can take place via download in the PPFA Online Store.

We will postpone the finals of the International Framing Competition; and ask participants to please keep your entries under wraps until the finals are rescheduled. Information about the new PRINT and 2021 Competition will follow later.

Stay safe and healthy, and stay in touch with your fellow PPFA members!

If you have any questions, email me at info@PPFA.com, and I’ll be happy to
assist you.

Best regards,
Robin Gentry, MCPF
PPFA Coordinator
