In addition to the site preview, we'll have food and beverages, and APA leadership will be present to answer questions. This is also a great opportunity for you to network with other industry professionals. This event is FREE for members; non-members will be charged $15 at the door.

The Arizona Production Association is growing and evolving with the times to better serve our members' needs with a new on-line presence to make members more visible and provide information to producers about the Arizona production community. After much consideration, the APA Board of Directors decided to discontinue publishing the printed directory and move to an on-line platform. The APA will now have an interactive and informative electronic Directory where members can highlight their services and customize their listings to potential clients.

I sincerely wish I had better news, but the window of opportunity we had to get some traction on passing the Multimedia Production Tax Incentive bill, SB-1242, has closed. The hard work to try and stay one step ahead of the opposition was successful, but with every new approach we used, there was an equal effort to close doors we had already opened. The current legislative leaders were generally not supportive of our cause, so it became painfully evident that we are trying to push a bill that had little chance of success.

Mass mailing of the 2013 issue of the Guide is scheduled to begin on February 21. Since the post office changed regulations for mailings in addition to raising postage at the end of January, we're just waiting on the mailing house to get confirmation from the post office of how we need to do the mailing this year. Members who were not at the Annual Meeting will receive their copies as part of the mass mailing.
