Note from the Board of Directors
RAS pic Greetings from
Robert Summers, Chair

I'm delighted to report to our membership that our 6th annual symposium was a great success.  Not only did we surpass our fundraising goal through generous member donations and sponsorships, but our members survey results gave high marks for our program.  We're already planning our 7th edition to be held on May 1-3, 2009 at the brand-new AT&T conference center on the campus of the University of Texas.  As I mentioned in my closing comments in Fort Worth, we are excited about the Austin symposium for many reasons.  This location will allow us to hold the symposium in a full-service hotel with first-rate audiovisual and conference facilities.  The room rates are also very affordable.  Also, the conference center is located very near the the Blanton Museum of Art, the Harry Ransom Center and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, which will all be participating in our programming.  Our new and improved "Texas Art Fair" will include more dealers, and will for the first time receive local, statewide and national advertising.  Our members will  have an exclusive opportunity on Friday night to preview the Fair before the general public is invited on Saturday and Sunday.  Please mark your calendars and make plans to attend.  Further announcements will follow.  We're also excited about our new website and the members-only area, including the message board, where members can ask questions and share thoughts on Early Texas Art.  We will continue to add content and functions to the website.  Finally, I'd like to personally thank our members for their continued support of CASETA and our mission.  Please feel free to contact me or Courtney at the CASETA office with any comments or ideas on how we can better serve our members and our mission.
