I am happy to announce that Frank Swann has agreed to serve as exhibits coordinator for the 2017 IDRS conference at Lawrence University. Frank Swann studied oboe with Robert Sprenkle at the University of Rochester and graduated from Howard University with a degree in Chemical Engineering. He worked at Eastman Kodak for 9 years before relocating to Los Angeles, where he owned and operated a digital prepress/digital printing business. During these 25 years in LA, he was an active freelance oboist. Frank now resides in Washington, DC where he owns Capitol Cane, a double-reed cane business. He has served as an assistant with the exhibits for several IDRS conferences. Frank can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Also, please note that a merchants portal for conference exhibitors will be available on the IDRS website very soon. This will allow vendors to register online. More to come on this.
