Survey for the TRAG Membership

Hello TRAG Members!!  We, your TRAG board members REALLY need your input!  Not being able to meet in person for two years has taken a toll on our art guild.  Overall, I think we’ve done a fairly good job keeping things going for two years, but still…..we’ve taken a hit.  Our membership numbers are down.  We are not alone in this….many organizations have been affected, and some have even folded.  We certainly are hoping that TRAG will continue and flourish in the coming year(s).  This, however, depends a great deal on participation of the membership.  This is one way that you can participate and have a say in how we move forward as a guild.  We’re hoping this will be an exciting time of “re-imagining” the guild as we begin to gather together again.  Previous surveys have only generated around 4 or 5 people responding.  My hope is that we get at least 50% of members responding.  Will you be one of those?  I sure hope so!  Thanks, in advance, for participating.

Tamara Scott
TRAG President
