Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed your holiday season! Our next UPVA meeting is coming up soon, on January 6th.

So if you’re interested, please come to the meeting at 5:30, 1 hour early.

Our regular UPVA meeting will begin at 6:30, we will be discussing our goals and outlook for the upcoming 2010 year in wedding and event videography.

This meeting will also be your last chance to turn in your entries for the Creative Excellence Awards! We know that you all have great videos out there, and this is a good way to get feedback on your work, as well as see how you stack up with other professionals in our state.

Another note about January’s meeting–Chris McClain will be stepping up as the 2010 UPVA president, and would like to meet with anyone interested in serving on the board. There will be a short meeting before the regular UPVA meeting, starting at 5:30. This is a great opportunity to be involved in the local industry and promote professional videography. If you have any questions about the meeting or UPVA in general, please feel free to contact the current UPVA president, Spencer Hale at or by phone 801-694-5194. We hope to see you all there!
