The year's starting full-swing and full-force, with a new chapter in the NAEA.
New officers have been elected for the year, and are as follows:
Jessica Sanford - President
Austin Smith - Vice-President
Becky Manning Hiatt - Secretary
Nikki and Tiffany - Publicity Agents
We hope that we'll have tons of new members this year to share in on the fun. If you're on the fence of whether or not you should join, PLEASE come out to the meeting. You can get a taste of what we're all about and hopefully that'll help you decide.
Some very important events/dates everyone should be aware of:
THIS FRIDAY September 10 - WE WILL NOT BE MEETING.
NEXT FRIDAY September 17 - WE WILL BE MEETING!
September 25 is the official day we will set up a booth at the Tate Street Festival to try and raise money for our organization. The UNCG homecoming is held Sep. 20-26, which is when we'll be there.
Art donations for the festival, from anyone, would be AMAZING! Donations include crafts and supplies such as stuffed creatures, pins, magnets, canvas art, most craft-ish items you can think of and paints, clay, cloth, anything to make something of. Donations should be delivered to room 206 in the Art building, but if you can't get there, PLEASE let us know, and we'll be happy to arrange for it to be picked up by one of our members. Jessica is willing to take donations as well, just let us know if you need her phone #.
Of course we realize that we all have pretty hectic schedules this time of year, but please know everyone is more than welcome to work on things on their own time. Halloween crafts are a great idea this time of year, and if anyone has any more ideas on what to make, let us know at the meeting.
We will also be meeting: (which are all Fridays at 2:30 - 3:30)
Officer meetings are held 2-2:30 (before chapter meetings)
Flyers will be posted in the Gatewood building and around Tate Street. Please tell your friends and family about the festival. We'd like to have as many people come by as possible!
The NAEA will be hosting a seminar in November, in what will probably be 2 sections/days. One day for lecture and the second, consecutive day for hands-on activities. Dates are to be determined. More than likely a Wednesday.
Jessica and Tiffany started off the year with a warm-up round at Maria's, where we dined on delicious Korean sustenance, provided by Maria and her family and friends. We went over some details of NAEA technicalities with Kara Seaford. It was a short visit, but a nice, informal introduction.
