RPA is moving - and moving forward!

The RPA Board of Directors has been hard at work charting a new course for the association.  You will see some changes that are subtle - like refreshing our logo and website accent colors - and other changes that are more to the point.  Our office is now located in Dayton Ohio and Roxy West, CAE, is our new Executive Director.

2023 Annual Conference: Savannah, GA: Designing Inside & Outside the Box! 
February 22 - 23, 2023: Hotel De Soto

For the first time, RPA will be meeting in Savannah - trying a slightly different format that will provide RPA members, suppliers, and distributors with different ways to interact with each other and think ahead for 2023.

DeSoto Location Our headquarters hotel is the DeSoto, conveniently located in downtown Savannah - a charming Southern escape where art, period architecture, trendy boutiques, and haunted stories are all set under a veil of Spanish moss. Savannah is a place where cuisine comes straight from the coast and cocktails are served at every meal. Come and discover the enchanting soul of Savannah from the center of the city.
Hotel? Art gallery? Why not both? The DeSoto partners with the acclaimed Savannah College of Art & Design to showcase the work of SCAD graduates, emerging artists, and fine art photographers. DeSoto Lobby

Registration and more information will be available soon here.
