Oct. Presidents’ Column~Speaking of …

One of the common themes in many of the surveys completed recently was that CAG members hope we will find ways to do more outreach. We take that to mean that many of you recognize how fortunate we are to be creative people in the visual arts and that you wish to have some options for giving back to our communities. It’s great to hear of your eagerness to put ART out there in our communities, wanting to share your skills, energy and enthusiasm for the creative life.

As co-presidents, we want to make sure that each of you finds your particular niche in our Guild. We feel certain that the CAG will be implementing some outreach program(s) this year which will satisfy the desire that many have to help others enjoy the arts.

With that in mind, we are putting a lot of effort into making it easier for volunteers to know what to expect when they take on a job. We are developing job descriptions for the Board and several committee positions presently. During the Social Half-Hour at each meeting, you will find sign-up forms where you can decide whether this particular job (which we hope to have described) is where the rubber meets the road for YOU. Your involvement is so essential to the vitality of this Guild. We enjoy working with each of you as you help the Guild flourish.

We hope to see you on Monday, Oct.1, at the Library!

Brandi Dayton and Carolyn Madsen, co-presidents
