Highlights of this year's SPCP Convention include:
Specialized first aid training (certificate provided) by the Red Cross. It is highly advised for all technicians to attend this class which includes information on maintaining a safe, hazard free workplace environment acceptable by both the CDC and OSHA. Space will be limited, so sign early.
Industry leaders and acclaimed speakers will address critical topics of the permanent cosmetics industry:
Lesley DeDecker CPCP will share her techniques and tips, presenting an eyeliner procedure with a digital machine.
Rose Ann Cloud CPCP will then present a brow procedure using the NeoTat machine.
Mary Jane Haake CPCP will let us know "The Benefits of Saying No". Not every prospective client is candidate for permanent cosmetics and we need to know when to say 'no', whether it is a first time client or a correction procedure.
Elizabeth Finch-Howell CPCP, President of the SPCP will discuss the often misinformed mystery of what is in our pigment bottles.
Gary Radelat CPA will address IRS issues and offer advice on the best direction to take when setting up a business or modifying an existing one.
Gustavo Colon, MD will focus on facial procedures, breast surgery, scar revision and other plastic surgery issues that relate to and affect permanent cosmetic procedures.
Liza Sims CPCP will round out the lineup as she humors the group with her antics. The audience will participate by trying to "Stump the Chump" as LiZa shares her insightful solutions to awkward situations in the work place.
