General Membership Jul 2007

General Membership Meeting July 2007

The annual membership meeting was called to order by President Elaine MacKay. Karl Hufbauer and Verena Schwippert were reelected to the Board. Constance Jones and Rich Andler were elected as new Board members. The NWSSA Members thank them and welcome them.

INQUIRY: Elaine began a discussion of what NWSSA members want for their future. She expressed concern that we don't have enough younger members to sustain our memberships as older members leave. Are we happy in our current pattern of 3 symposia, Flower & garden show, and a social gathering in the fall or winter? Or do we want to look at the possibility of acquiring property, a possible place for workshops and shows? Leon White gave the example of an old hardware store in Kent being donated for use by the arts. Through a show of hands, the majority of the membership present is interested in exploring this idea further.
