Guild Meeting and Plans for the Future

Hello, everyone!

We had a small but productive meeting on June 25, at Rick Bouchard's wonderful little house and studio in the woods. At the meeting we discussed plans for the future and caught up on what some of our Guild members are doing.

We currently have about 30 active email contacts on our mailing list, so one of our jobs is to touch base with names on the list who no longer have valid emails. We decided that we would no longer charge annual membership dues, since most of our membership receives their updates via email, and postage and printing costs are negligible. Hopefully, this will allow members to participate in the guild more easily. We will still charge a small amount for play dates (to cover materials or teacher fees). Workshops will be a bigger expense, but all felt that it is important to bring high caliber teachers to the area on a regular basis.

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, October 15, 2011. We will have a business meeting at 10:00 a.m. followed by a brown-bag lunch and then a Zentangle workshop at 1:00. This playdate is open to all levels. We will put a calligraphic "twist" on Zentangles for those students who are more familiar with the process. For more information about Zentangles, go to: www.zentangle.com .

More detailed minutes and play date information will be coming to members shortly through email. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at mcneicester@gmail.com.
