IVRPA treasurer position available

Dear members,

The IVRPA will need a new treasurer as of January 1st, 2012.

Sandra Mexa has been our treasurer for two years now, and has done an amazing job of setting things in order. They were busy years, with two major conferences, the Photokina show/conference, the Palmela exhibitions, and the patent challenge special account. But now understandably Sandra needs to devote more time to her own business and family.
