This new program is launching in early 2018. Each Council Leader will facilitate meet-ups, send out monthly emails to their region’s members about opportunities and events in their area, welcome new members, and report on member achievements and events to the SNAG office. Council Leaders will also write posts for the SNAG Connects Blog and create short SNAG videos that will connect members virtually, creating a more dynamic online community.
Thank you to the Crafthaus website and Liz Steiner for interviewing one of our new SNAG Connects Council Leaders, Cyd Rowley. Read the interview here. Crafthaus will continue to interview the Council Leaders.
SNAG members are already hearing from some Council Leaders. Erin Elm Harris says, “I was so excited to get your email! I feel sooo disconnected up here in Vermont so I’m looking forward to getting more info on this program and opportunities in the New England area.”
