SDP is headed to Chicagoland for the 2013 Conference & Expo! Mark your calendar today to join us for a week of decorative painting, learning, and fun.

The Conference will be held May 13–18, 2013, at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Ill. (a northern suburb of Chicago). Pheasant Run Resort is the perfect place for SDP's 41st Conference—great classrooms, wonderful exhibit space, plenty of rooms, PLUS all the amenities of a resort—restaurants, swimming pools, golf course, a spa, and more. Plus, downtown Chicago is just a train ride away for all of the shops and museums that the city has to offer. The best part? We have worked out a deal with the resort to keep the cost of rooms low-just $109 for double occupancy. Reservations for the Conference will be available on June 1, 2012. Watch the SDP blog for more information on registration and the Conference.

Now that we have a time and place, we need a Conference theme. This year, we are opening up the naming of the Conference to you, our members.

All SDP members are invited to submit as many ideas as they can think of. If we use your theme idea, you will receive FREE REGISTRATION at the 2013 Conference, plus FREE 2013 MEMBERSHIP–a value of over $150.

To enter, simply email your theme idea to before June 1, 2012 with subject line “2013 Conference Theme.” A committee will evaluate the themes for marketability and creativity. In the case of duplicate ideas, only the first submission to arrive at our offices will be eligible. The decision of the committee is final.

So put your painter’s brain to work and create our 2013 Conference theme—the deadline (June 1, 2012) is quickly approaching. Planning for the Conference is just getting started, so stay tuned to and the SDP Blog for all the details.

*Teachers: submission for for classes are due June 27th. The contract will be available online at on June 6th.
