Message from the President, Deb Bettencourt

The dog days of summer are here!  We wait for the warm weather for nine months, then all of a sudden we’re excited for the first pumpkin flavored coffee to show up far too early!  I don’t know about you, but I find myself looking forward to the next job, next season, next vacation, without being fully present in the moment.  I think it’s human nature, but that doesn’t mean we should be resigned to it.  Let’s be sure to recharge ourselves this summer.  Stop and feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, the sound of the heat bugs, the free concerts under the stars.  Because before you know it we’ll be chilly and wishing for the Spring!  Why not enjoy it right now?
 
We had a great July program with Miss Sassy Mouth Marissa Balletti-Lavoie.  Her Guide to the Hustle “Volume One” showed what imagination and action can do for a business.  And I have a feeling she’ll be back with “Volume Two” someday.
 
Our Board is hard at work crafting a vision of PPARI that meets the needs of photographers today.  There’s always room for additional volunteers to be part of the forward momentum.  Interested in learning more about our Board?  Please reach out to a Board member to chat.  No obligation…just consider giving back, and getting so much in return.
 
So, please stop and take in all that summer in New England offers.  And be in-the-moment so you can go back in your mind when we’re deep in polar fleece season :0)
 
Thanks!
Debbi
