KEEPING UP WITH CHANGE
Last year, I commented that our industry is changing fast and how difﬁcult it is to keep up with all those changes. Although I knew major changes were coming, I still can’t quite believe how much – or how fast – things are changing. It’s hard enough to stay on the cutting edge when the waters are calm, but it becomes even more important when rough seas threaten our safety. This issue of BeautyLink provides an update of some of those changes and contains some terriﬁc articles that will help you stay on the cutting edge. By the time you read this issue of BeautyLink, the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) should be in its ﬁnal stages. I can’t begin to tell you how serious this NPRM is, and although I can’t predict the outcome, I want to let everyone know how hard the Government Relations Committee (GRC) is working to protect our interests. The GRC has spent countless hours reading the 503-page NPRM, discussing the effects and formulating the ofﬁcial response for AACS. We all need to support the GRC efforts and be thankful for all their hard work. The Beauty Changes LivesSM update announces the formation of a new non-proﬁt, 501(c)3 that enables AACS to raise tax-deductable contributions for scholarships and other philanthropic activities. Celebrity stylist Ted Gibson has been selected as the ofﬁcial Beauty Changes LivesSM spokesperson. To learn more about his new role, please see the article on page 15 and visit www.beautychangeslives.org. Please don’t forget the AACS Annual Convention at the Renaissance Orlando Resort at Seaworld in Orlando, Florida. You won’t want to miss this year’s convention. Check out page 12 for all of the convention details. I hope to see you there.

THANK YOU, CEA!
ON THE CUTTING EDGE: THE MOST ADVANCED AND MODERN STAGE OF SOMETHING, FORWARD THINKING AND FORWARD LOOKING, REVOLUTIONARY, AVANT GARDE AND EVEN R ADICAL.
I love when I receive the BeautyLink magazine. I can’t wait to open it up and start reading. The theme for this issue is, on the cutting edge. Before I get into the issue, I’d like to thank all who contributed to the success of this year’s CEA Convention. I hope you had an amazing educational experience at the CEA Convention in July! I know I did. I am already looking forward to CEA 2011. In the meantime, be sure to check out and utilize the many tools CEA has to offer you. Our website, www.beautyeducators.org, and the CEA Listserve are two of the many resources you have to help you stay on the cutting edge. Our website includes a resource room; educator’s advice; and tips on becoming an educator and more. The CEA Listserve offers you the ability to e-mail your fellow educators to share and ask questions. Both are very effective and can be used on a daily basis. What does on the cutting edge mean to you? To me, it means the most advanced and modern stage of something, forward thinking and forward looking, revolutionary, avant-garde and even radical. As you are aware, it is important for us to always be on the cutting edge in our industry, especially as educators. Enjoy this issue of BeautyLink. It is full of ideas and suggestions for you to utilize at your school to make sure you remain on the cutting edge. Live, love and learn,
