FFAA General Meeting – Sunday, July 25, 2021

Follow-up to Urgent Business Requiring Member Input

On My Honour by Darcy L. Hoover 2020 Future in Focus

The next meeting will be held on Sunday, July 25, 2021 to review the roster of volunteers for Board and committee roles. Members will be deciding on future activities, including the number and type of programs to be offered by FFAA, and possibly including an assessment of the continuation of the association. 

All FFAA member guild representatives are asked to pass this notice to their respective guild members in an efficient manner, asking them to plan on attending. 

All independent FFAA members are encouraged to add it to their calendar and plan to attend as well.

The Board has called for more volunteers to assist with planning and delivering programs to FFAA members. All members are asked to consider their experience   and skill set and come prepared to join a team to organize and deliver workshops, exhibitions and fibre art events. Note that the budget for these activities is in place; we need volunteers to deliver the programs. Suggestions for virtual workshop instructors are sought; please use the form on the Upcoming Workshops page to submit your suggestions.

We know the members are highly satisfied with the FFAA programs. It’s time for more members to join the team and continue to deliver these valuable programs to your friends and fellow fibre artists.

The July 25, 2021 Zoom meeting link will be posted a week before the meeting.

Please plan to attend and take part.
