Brad Benjamin will be co-moderating several breakout sessions at the 2006 AIGA Leadership Retreat. This year’s retreat, entitled Continuum will be held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, CA, June 23-25, 2006. The AIGA Leadership Retreat is a gathering to bring together the leadership of the 48 chapters throughout the country with the national board and staff from New York to assess the state of the organization and to look ahead toward future plans and initiatives.

On Saturday, Brad will be speaking about the deployment of the AIGA Internet Kit which he helped to design for the chapter. The kit is a turn-key software product designed to help individual chapters in building a web presence that also integrates seamlessly with syndicated content on the national site. On Sunday, Brad along with Robert Bynder will demonstrate and answer questions about Emma® email marketing software. Emma's easy-to-use software has been in use for over a year by the Los Angeles chapter, will soon be rolled-out to all chapters through integration at the national level.
