Sarah Pendergraft headlines our September 8th meeting.

The next evolution of LIVA announced.

After talking with a lot of people this last year
and considering all the options we are psyched
to announce beginning in January 2016, LIVA
will be moving half of our meetings into NYC.

We've had so many requests and a ton of
interest that we're going to make it happen.

The structure of LIVA moving forward will be
five meetings a year in NYC and five meetings
a year in Long Island alternating each month.
There will be three ways to join LIVA:

1) You can join just to attend the NYC meetings.
There will be five meetings in 2016.
Dues are $125.00 per year.

2) You can join just to attend the Long Island meetings.
There will be five meetings in 2016.
Dues are $125.00 per year.

3) You can join and attend all the meetings in BOTH locations.
There will be ten meetings in 2016.

Dues are $175.00 per year.
These are the current early-bird rates.
Dues will increase at the beginning of 2016.

LIVA membership is now January to December.
Unless you have paid dues in the last month
you are not currently a member of LIVA.

Yearly dues are now due no later than the
January meeting. However, if you renew NOW,
you get to attend the last two meetings of 2015
for free (Sept and Oct). Both meetings will be
at the current location in Long Island. LIVA will
permit non-members to attend any meeting they
want. The fee will be $50.00 per meeting.
Obviously, you are much better off actually
joining LIVA.

LIVA is not splitting the organization just the
meeting locations. Content will not be repeated
at both locations. Each meeting will be awesome.
It’s that simple.

Those who didn’t attend our July meeting missed
Cali Hlavac’s tear-down of Instagram. Killer meeting.
You should have been there.

In case you don’t know, ALL! the board members are
volunteers. 100% of the money collected from dues,
raffles and donations goes to supporting the
organization. We've lined up major sponsorship
for LIVA in 2016. The new and improved association
will be bigger and better than ever.

Moving into 2016 we will focus on all aspects of
event filmmaking. We will continue to delve into
weddings while adding additional content on
corporate and commercial work.

Our September meeting will feature one of the
most talented event filmmakers in the industry.
Sarah Pendergraft, owner of Pen Weddings in
Oklahoma, is killing it while traveling all over
the country filming some of the most spectacular
weddings. She will teach you how she tackles
marketing, audio and editing.

Sarah has been a featured speaker at many
recent national and international conventions,
including InFocus and WPPI, and is our keynote
presenter on September, 8th.

As if this wasn't enough, additional content
will be announced soon. Our October meeting
is also a beast you won’t want to miss.

If you join LIVA before the September meeting
you get to see Sarah for FREE!, plus you get to
attend the October meeting NO CHARGE.

We will post instructions on how to join/renew LIVA shortly.

If you haven't renewed your dues for 2016

this is the time to do it. It will help us continue

to bring in high profile speakers and create

very worthwhile programming.

. . . . . . . . . .

LIVA meetings are open to everyone.
Guests that wish to attend simply need to show-up.
There is no guest fee for the remainder of 2015.
