KPA schedules Viers to lead 'Technology Academy'

Posted June 11, 2014

Russell Viers has been scheduled to lead a two-day seminar in July that will instruct participants on how to use Adobe Creative Suite products to their fullest.

The "Technology Academy" is set for July 17 and 18 at the Kansas Press Association office in Topeka and is partially underwritten by a grant from the Kansas Newspaper Foundation.

Participation is just $99, covers two full days of training and is limited to the first 12 who register.

"Russell has been our most popular speaker in recent years, and most of our members have asked for a more in-depth training session," said Emily Bradbury, director of member services for the Kansas Press Association. "This will fit the bill and then some."

Viers will lead sessions on the most popular Adobe Creative Suite programs, including InDesign, PhotoShop, Illustrator, Bridge and Acrobat XI Pro.

A special hotel rate of $79 has been secured for Thursday, July 16 at the ClubHouse Inn and Suites, 924 S.W. Henderson Road, which is within a mile of the KPA office, where the sessions will be hosted.

A registration form is available here.

"Don't delay," Bradbury said. "This will fill up fast." Only six slots remain.
