Additional unelected positions:

As you can see, we need some one to fill the position of secretary.  Marilyn Martin has held this position for several years and needs to step down.  It involves taking notes at a monthly board meeting and the monthly program.  Computer skills necessary.

It is important for any organization to have positions filled by new folks.  If you enjoy WVAS programs, please consider coming along side one of the board positions during this next year.  Board meetings are held the Wednesday evening before the Tuesday monthly program.  Members are welcome to come and see how the planning is done.  We are grateful for Rachel Lattimore's contribution since her move to Lafayette two years ago.  Diane Camberato has stepped up to help with the exhibits that we all enjoy.  Please respond to this e-mail if you would be willing to serve as WVAS secretary.  Thanks much. 

October 15 - Special Presentation by Golden Artist Colors representative!
