To emphasize this sense of community, we would like to call upon our members to nominate fellow artists that they feel deserve this recognition.  We are looking for artists that represent the broad range and innovation of work being created by our membership.

SNAG’s 50th Anniversary Planning

SNAG 50 years logoCall for Volunteers:  SNAG’s 50th Anniversary Planning Committees

Did you know that SNAG’s 50th anniversary is coming up in 2019? We want to celebrate this event BIG TIME and are looking for people like you who would enjoy helping us plan. No prior knowledge necessary, we are looking for YOUR ideas on any of these committees:

Exhibitions + Events – This committee will think about and plan special events and exhibitions taking place during the 2019 and 2020 conferences.

Fundraising – This is a big birthday for SNAG and we are hoping it will also be a big year to help our organization be financially stable for the next 50 years.

Print – We will be putting together a booklet which will detail SNAG’s history. It’s a wonderful opportunity for a SNAG history buff and  those with writing and editorial skills.

Digital Activities –  In addition to the conference activities we would like to post several web-based projects such as stories from past presidents or interviews with current members about what they envision the future of SNAG to be. If you are digitally savvy or a good social media person, we would love to have you on board!

Interested in volunteering for a 50th Anniversary Committee?  Email our Executive Director Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith. We can’t wait to have you join the team and hear your ideas. Thank you!
