IAPP (Rescheduled) Fall 2021 Conference

There is an old saying “Third Times the Charm”.  We at IAPP are keeping our fingers crossed to see how true that phrase will be.  Our first two Conference attempts, October 2020 and April 2021 have been dashed because of Co-vid 19 restrictions and safety precautions for our members.  So, the IAPP conference once again is being moved to the fall of 2021.  Thanks to the hotel staff and cooperation from the liaisons at our venues. We will finally be landing in Rochester, New York albeit a year late.  Come spend time in the beautiful North Eastern U.S.A. with all its fall colors. The dates are October 19th through the 21st with a tag on day for those who wish to visit the finger lakes area for more scenic views and try some of its finest vineyards.  We will start off our adventure with a photo day at Letchworth State Park.  Visit the upper and lower falls area, many hillside streams and hiking trails. The Genesee River gorge carving its way north to Lake Ontario.  Later we’ll spend time to explore the George Eastman Museum and see some of the early equipment used in the making of panoramic photography and view the gardens.  Our time will include a visit to The Rochester Institute of Technology where we can interact with some of the imagemakers of the future.  As usual, there will be our panoramic photo contest (details coming soon).  Come one, come all who enjoy film or digital panoramic formats to learn some history, new innovations in panoramic photography and enjoy some wonderful photographic opportunities.
