A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

As I write this, my first note to you as your President, the volunteer NCECA board as well as our Executive Director and key staff are all back home from our meeting in Houston snug and nestled in their beds…. actually they're probably sitting in an uncomfortable chair at a computer following up on NCECA business. They are conveniently located on each of the coasts as well as strewn across the center of the country, odds are you already know them from your own presence in the field and as an NCECA member or are quite possibly neighbors. We invite you to reach out and share with any one of us your perspectives and ideas about our beloved field. We want to engage you and hear from you—you are what makes NCECA one of the greatest arts organizations in the world.

What we all came away with from Houston is the love we have for our field in a way that unified us immediately, a microcosm of what is NCECA. Expect to see the fruits of our labor and yours in everything from publications, to exhibitions, to programming, to communications and all things in-between.

As a membership driven organization you might be interested to know that just prior to our spring meeting we completed the Annenberg Alchemy training sessions for non-profit excellence. What we learned has been implemented into the effectiveness of the way we do the business of the council. NCECA has relationships that not only includes training from organizations like the Annenberg but also generous support from the Windgate Charitable Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts who recognize our record of professionalism, reputation, impact and fiscal responsibility. Our organization is coming of age.

And, lest we forget, the clock is ticking down to our 50th Anniversary celebration in 2016. Listen closely for the site announcement after the closing lecture in Houston. Task force groups have been implemented to help us make a big splash and set the tone for NCECA's long-term legacy. We want to hear from you, get involved and let us know what you're thinking whether its about the 50th celebration or what you'd like to see in Houston or Milwaukee.

Take your career to the next level.
Expose your art to an audience of international ceramic leaders
through this outstanding exhibition in Santa Fe!

Ecumene: Global Interface in American Ceramics is a national juried exhibition developed and sponsored by NCECA to run concurrently with the general assembly of the International Academy of Ceramics (IAC). Composed of leading figures in ceramic art from throughout the world IAC members will be meeting in the US for the first time since 1984. This event is projected to draw hundreds of international artists, curators, writers and leaders in the ceramics field. Selected works will be seen by an international audience while insulating participating artists from the complexities and costs of international shipping. NCECA will design a print on demand catalog and all artists included in the exhibition will receive a complimentary copy.
The exhibition runs August 29 - September 20, 2012 and will be featured during the IAC general assembly meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Submissions will be juried by Jane Sauer, Linda Ganstrom, NCECA's Exhibition Director and Santa Fe Community College's James Marshall and Clark Baughan.

*** Due to technical problems encountered by some applicants in our outsourced exhibition adjudication software the deadline has been extended to Friday, June 15.
Contact kate@nceca.net if you have any questions or require help with your submission.
