CRAFT: It's Friday, January 9
News from the Craft Organization Development Association:
CODA members are invited to participate in a “Best Practice" presentation, to share with your colleagues on a national stage. We’re looking for anything that is new, now, hot, and exciting. Don’t miss this opportunity to show off your recent efforts, creativity, and successes! Participants will be highlighted in promotional materials and on the CODA website before and after the conference!
Already slated, for example: CraftNet will present its “e-Commerce for Artisans” online curriculum, developed to assist community college faculty and to help artists use the Internet more effectively to market and sell their creations.
