BOARD NOMINATIONS COMMITTEE:
Looking for New Board Members

Now is a pivotal time to make a difference in the future of the Northwest Stone Sculptor’s Association.  With the societal shift brought on by Covid-19, we are at a crossroads with the organization and looking for people to strengthen and support the health and long-term wellness of NWSSA. Help carry this transition successfully by offering your skills to build strength in these new times to keep NWSSA thriving.  

Our organization has a solid pool of enthusiastic donors but only a handful of volunteers.  NWSSA would greatly benefit from your unique perspective and skills.  We offer the only stone carving symposiums open to all skill levels sharing interest and passion for stone sculpting.  The inclusiveness offered by the community gives all the opportunity for growth and development as an individual, in the NWSSA community and as a stone sculptor.  Through NWSSA offerings professional sculptors carve and share wisdom side by side with newly inspired stone carvers this unique opportunity has been fostered over the 30 years of its existence.
 
Currently, all NWSSA Board meetings are on Zoom, so location no longer limits your involvement.  Please consider reaching out to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Board and Committee Updates Dec 2021

BOARD MUSINGS:

NEXT MEETING is January 18, 2022 @ 6:30pm on ZOOM

This is your board. If you have ideas that you want the board to consider, please let us know and we can put you on the agenda. Members are always welcome to come to the meetings and listen in. It is easy since we have our meetings on Zoom. Please contact our Prez, Denny Tsang at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. He will send you a zoom link.
We are continuing to work on ways to get members involved. Let us know what ideas you may have!

JOURNAL COMMITTEE:
Barbara Neswald is chairing this committee and working with Maya Kilmer and Arliss Newcomb. They are planning on sending out the journal on a quarterly basis and expect to have their first copies out in early spring.
Ben Mefford, who has been our Journal editor for about the past 3 years is retiring from this job but hopes to publish the last copy of his tenure before January 1st. That is dependent on the ability to get paper (which he said is now in short supply due to supply chain issues).
Thanks Ben for putting together a great journal that we have all gotten to enjoy!

LEGAL GUIDANCE COMMITTEE:
The Legal Guidance Committee is: Patty McPhee (chair), Bill Weissinger (volunteer) and Tamara Buchanan (liaison to the board.) This committee is currently working on connecting to a legal service that specifically specializes in working with non-profit arts organizations. The focus of the work now is reviewing and updating NWSSA documents and forms for events.
If you have info that might help them, please contact Patty McPhee This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
