Greetings UFVA Members!

YOU DECIDE who will be the new leaders of the University Film and Video Association by casting your vote in the current election for a new President, Vice-President, and three new board members. Who will undertake to lead the organization in new directions? Who will seek to preserve the traditional activities of the association? Do you want to elect fresh new members with new perspectives? Or would you rather have experienced members who have served the organization in the past? The kind of organization that you want depends on whom you elect to serve. Please take a moment to read each candidate’s position statement—you’ll find it on the web site and also attached to the ballot that was sent electronically. Submit your electronic ballot by the end of June.

UFVA welcomes Avid Technologies in its new role as a major sponsor of the association. Avid will host the Wednesday night reception at the conference in August. If you haven’t already registered, sit yourself down and make plans to attend the annual conference in Boston, hosted by Emerson College. The keynote address by Holly Willis, panels, screenings, installations, the Avid Reception, a harbor cruise, the final banquet at the historic Parker House, and great colleagues from around the US and beyond will inspire and enlighten you. See you there!

Here’s wishing you a great start to the summer. See you in August.
