General Meeting
started at 6:45pm and ended at 9:00pm

The theme of the meeting was:

RICKIE LEITER, entrepreneur and president of The Rickie Report, an online publication that features artists and art events in South Florida, will be guest speaker at the Artists of Palm Beach County Artists’ Sharing Meeting, in the great room of the Concordia East, 3560 S. Ocean Boulevard – 2nd floor, Palm Beach, on Monday, September 10, 2012 from 6:45 pm -9:00 pm.

Please come early. There will be no one at the door to let people in after 7:30.

Before moving to Florida, Rickie owned an art consulting business in Massachusetts, where she and her business partner represented local and national artists. Rickie also spearheaded the marketing for a local Massachusetts beading and jewelry store. She is on the National Board of Hadassah, where she previously chaired the Marketing and Communication Department. Rickie, an artist herself, enjoys working with polymer clay and designing jewelry.

Rickie will share her expertise in marketing, networking, advertising and online publishing, offering helpful hints to assist artists to market their art work and connect with the South Florida art community. "Understanding the artists' needs is central to helping them develop a variety of marketing strategies. One thing does not work for everyone. That is why I love publishing The Rickie Report. I can offer a variety of ways to help artists see opportunities they have not tapped into yet."

There will be a drawing from business cards from those in attendance for a personalized press release in The Rickie Report.

Joe Friedman, President of APBC, will give us an update on Art on Park, the proposed new home for APBC in Lake Park, and Norm Berman will talk about our first open call to artists exhibition, PARTICIPATION 2012, which will be at the Armory Art Center, December 14, 2012 to January 12, 2013. Members and guests will be invited to share information about events they are involved in.
