Whether you are interested in Fretwork, Marquetry, or Intarsia; whether you work in wood, or other mediums; whether you design your own patterns or use available patterns; no matter what brand of scroll saw you use; no matter where in the world you are located, the Scrollsaw Association of the World is for YOU!
In April, 2016 a membership letter was mailed to members asking for
volunteers to take over the responsibilities of SAW. The alternative was
to dissolve SAW. The deadline to was set for June 30, 2016. Very few
members came forth to take over and it appeared that SAW was going to
be dissolved. Fortunately, right up to the deadline, volunteers stepped up.
That is good news!
Your new Board of Directors have been interviewed, participated in a toll
free conference call and have shown that they have leadership qualities
and experience to renew SAW. I am excited to announce that SAW
leadership is made up of Local Chapter Members in California and Florida
and have appointed each individual to BOD responsibilities. Each will
gradually take over the responsibilities of their assigned position. Robert
King, President, California, Ron Ault, Vice President, California, Ron
Haigler, Treasurer, California, Walter Person, Secretary, Florida, Allan
Price, SAWDUST Editor, California. Robert King was appointed to the
existing BOD and will participate in the monthly toll free conference call
on Tuesday July 19, 2016. There will be changes, and eventually moving
the home office to California.
Some SAW membership renewal applications and fees have been returned
during the last couple of months. If you were one whose application and
renewal fee was returned, I really encourage you to resend and renew your
membership. Let’s show the new BOD that we are behind them 100% and
pledge our individual support to renew SAW.
I am excited to see the development of the new BOD and I hope you will join
me in welcoming them and pledging your individual support.
Local Chapters are in place or are being founded in many areas of the country. Members of Chapters are the enthusiastically addicted scrollers from a geographic area. All scrollers are invited to join and share their knowledge with the group. New scrollers can learn from the combined experience of the group's members. This is your opportunity to join in and explore the advantages of membership in this growing and vital Association.
Your membership will immediately give you a subscription to our quarterly newsletter, SAW Dust, and a copy of our current annual Resource Directory. These publications will enhance your scrolling, enlarge your community, and give you a valuable start to learning more about this wonderful craft. You can explore many of these benefits on these pages, but you will not have the full benefit of membership until you join the Scrollsaw Association of the World.
Join now and become a part of this growing community!
