Future Chapter Events

Using the Tradewing Platform
with Jason Coleman, Tradewing

Jason Coleman will be leading our May chapter meet up with a 1-hour interactive webinar on how to start using the AICI Tradewing platform.

A few fun facts about Tradewing:
1. Tradewing will be replacing all our CEU and Non-CEU courses, webinars, live meets, and recorded training events on the AICI website, as opposed to using zoom.
2. As the new AICI Member Network, Tradewing is also a great place to meet and network with all AICI members worldwide, in your own language.
3. Much like Facebook, AICI Member Network is intended to be a “social network” for AICI members only. Members are encouraged to post and share frequent updates, memes, funny topics of conversation, or interesting aspects of their life, career, and the AICI organization.
4. AICI intends for it to be a great place to stay connected with all members as well as local chapter members, make communication easy and instant for everyone, as well as provide a valuable place for updates, news, and training for members only.

May Chapter Meet-up Information,
1. Date: May 30
2. Time: 5:00-6:00 P.M. CDT/6:00-7:00 P.M. EDT
3. Recorded: yes

Coming Later This Year:
Selecting Impactful Prints for Your Clients

with Nancy Nix-Rice, AICI CIP

Print selection encapsulates every aspect of the balance between a client’s personal characteristics and her clothing. Nancy will demonstrate how harmonious color temperature, value, intensity and repetition, contrast levels, motif shapes and placement, print scale and fabrication come together in prints that put your client in the spotlight and also how prints that lack that harmony – even if they are lovely themselves – end up visually devouring your client.

Learning outcomes:

1. List at least 6 categories in which a print can repeat attributes of the individual’s appearance
2. Evaluate print balance with a client’s color temperature, value, intensity and contrast
3. Describe how a print’s scale and motif shapes can relate to a client’s characteristics.

• Date: TBD
• Time: TBD
• CEU: .01
• Cost: $25
• RSVP: “Selecting Impactful Prints For Your Clients”
• Recorded: yes
