BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! FCA BROWN BAG SERIES 2.0 Digitally Remastered!
What is an FCA Brown Bag program? Grab your lunch and pull your chair up to your computer to hang out with your FCA colleagues. Each month we’ll explore a new topic relevant to our work. Using GoToWebinar, we’ll talk virtually with each other, allowing for conference call, video in some cases, and screen sharing. Each session will engage several panelists with experience in the topic, so come with questions AND ideas and thoughts based on your own work. Brown Bag programs will be more like a conversation with colleagues and less like a presentation or conference session.

Four Techniques to Improve Your Images August 2017
It's easy to get overwhelmed with all the tools in Photoshop and InDesign. In this session, long-time editorial designer Bruce Tria from Tria Designs will provide you with four simple techniques to utilize in these programs to improve the quality of your images. Following along with this Photoshop and InDesign tutorial is best, but hard-copy handouts will also be provided. The target audience for this session is designers, digital media managers and anyone else who edits photos using Adobe productions.
Some of the people who work on the front-line with our collegiate members are outside of our membership -- campus professionals. We'll discuss how to engage this audience both proactively and reactively.
