Letter from the President – November 2018

Nicole Jacquard

Nicole Jacquard

Happy Autumn Everyone!

I hope you all are having a great start to fall and that this finds you getting geared up for the holiday season.

In October, the board had its annual fall face-to-face meeting at Arrowmont, where we worked on SNAG’s next Strategic Plan, and of course getting geared up for SNAG’S 50th Anniversaries over the next two years — when we will celebrating the founding of the organization in 2019, and the anniversary of our first conference in 2020.

So with that I want to first say many, many thanks to each and every one of you who participated in the 219 for 220 initiative!! Your generosity is wholeheartedly appreciated and all the funds will directly benefit our celebrations over the next two years.

I would like to reiterate that the significance of reaching 50 years is a huge milestone. This organization is a community that you created, it quite literally is a safe-haven for like-minded people who are generous, thoughtful, inclusive and supportive of all creative activities. And you can help SNAG continue to be a strong organization, by investing in your community before the end of the year.

As we approach the holiday season, it is the time when we will be reaching out to the entire membership with our Annual Appeal. So please reflect on what SNAG means to you — how it has benefited you personally through its events, resources, and overall comradery of the membership. And when you think of these things in addition to all the other things SNAG provides, please be generous in your givingin whatever amount you can — to an organization that only exists because of your support.

Over the past 50 years, SNAG has helped forge a path, building the community of contemporary jewelry and metalsmithing that exists today. Our organization has created the framework that forms our international community and we want to continue bringing our traditions into the future. Your gift will allow us to continue do this. Thank you.

Again, I hope you are all enjoying the fall and being productive in all your creative endeavors.

Best wishes,

Nicole Jacquard
President
Society of North American Goldsmiths
