Vote on Membership Increase.
As per TRAG Bylaws, this information needs to be placed for 2 consecutive months in the newsletter. In the Fall of 2022, the membership dues for individuals were raised but other membership dues remained the same – an oversight! Dues will be $50 for families or two people living at the same address and $20 for students. This is a $10 raise in both categories.
Discussed at the March meeting was having a new membership for businesses. The purpose would be to have businesses in a supporter category. Still discussing what the rate for the new category would be and how we would present them for events.
Program: selling your art
Melissa Gannon will present ideas about selling your art. Topics will include: tuning into artists who are doing what you want to do via websites, podcasts and classes, applying to galleries and shows, looking for grants, print on demand sites, taking stock of your unique skill set and thinking of ways that you can offer a product or service.
