Fall Membership Meeting at VisArts

We will have a general membership meeting Sunday afternoon, October 6, from 1:30 to 3:30 at VisArts at Rockville.  The meeting had previously been scheduled at Glen Echo but was moved due to the shutdown of the Federal Government.

Everyone is encouraged to bring pieces to show and discuss informally at a table that will be set up in the meeting room.  This is also an opportunity to ask for help with items that are presenting problems.

Voting on the slate of officers will be available for those who did not vote by email.

The program will begin with a short business meeting and introduction of the new officer candidates.  Tina Chisena will then entertain and educate us with enameling tips and tricks.  We will close with a session where several members will have an opportunity to present new work.
