Millie Lewis AMTC
(American Modeling and Talent Convention)


To Whom It May Concern:

I went through the sites. They are working all sides of it. They have their four-day Search/convention; they have their traveling photographer (you should only use their photographer and not the bad local ones); they have the online comp cards; they have their sell-back/sell-through with the modeling school/agencies (some are franchises).

They haven't missed a trick at how to make a buck.

I am sure if you tracked their success stories you would find attending this convention had very little to do with them making it.

O.D.


Response from Millie Lewis President:

Dear O.D.,

It's obvious you've never been to a Millie Lewis convention. I'd like to respond to several points in you letter.

First, we admit no franchise schools: no Barbizon, no John Robert Powers, no John Casablancas. All of our directors are credible, small-business owners who sign an extensive Agreement of Ethics before they can even attend AMTC. If they violate a rule, we release them.

Secondly, we have the best agents, managers and casting directors of any convention in the world. Yes, you've probably heard of Ford, Elite, Wilhelmina and
Next. However, excellent smaller agencies also represent many supermodels and talent.

Following this letter to you is a list (see below) of definite acceptances for our Orlando 2002 convention, as of today's date, May 30, 2002.

Thirdly, our WebComps began during the high excitement about the new possibility of internet representation. Because so many new and questionable companies began selling this service, we have decided to discontinue it.

Please look at our new website to be launched at the end of June.

Sincerely,

Carey Lewis Arban
President
The Millie Lewis American Modeling and Talent Convention and Millie Lewis International, Inc.
