SLWS 2015 Dues are Due Now

The SLWS 2015 dues invoice will go out this week via email for all of our members with email addresses, and by mail to the members without email addresses.  The dues are $35 this year.  An increase was necessary and explained in our August newsletter.  

Please mail your payment and include the invoice completed with any changes you may have for our Directory, your email address if you have one so we may communicate with you via email, and if you would like to "go green" by reading our newsletters on our website instead of receiving a printed one in the mail.  

All members who pay their dues by October 1 will receive advance registration forms for our 2015 Workshops -- Tom Lynch, April 14 - 18, Bev Jozwiak, July 13 - 17, and Jean Haines, two sessions on October 24 & 25 and October 27 & 28.  Registration for our workshops will go public this year on November 15 so don't miss your chance to reserve a place before that date.   

Our first membership meeting will be Wednesday, September 17th.  We will be accepting dues at our meeting if you would like to save postage. 

For your convenience, we are providing a form with this post for you to print and use.

Here are some candid shots taken by Suzanne Galli Koenen of our Big Splash 2014 Opening Reception at OA Gallery on Friday evening, Sept. 5.  If you were unable to attend the opening we hope you will stop by to see the show . . . and bring your friends and family.  We thank OA Gallery for hosting the show in their gallery, all our members who entered artwork in the show, Steve Teczar for judging the entries, all our volunteers who worked to make this event possible, and our sponsors who made generous contributions for our awards.
