Dear Members of the Artists Guild:
The Artists Guild will hold its annual
General Meeting on Saturday, June 8, 2024,
from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PDT via Zoom.  

We hope you will join us for this
important meeting. 

During the meeting, you will receive updates on past and upcoming Guild activities and exhibitions.  
Then, attending Artist Members will elect the
Board of Directors for the coming fiscal year. 
The slate of the proposed Board candidates
is as follows:

Jody Abssy 
Cecilia Anastos
Jim Bliesner
Lunjia Hu
Susan Mae Hull 
Kevin Inman 
Katerina Husar Lazarova
Barbara Leitzel
Mark-Elliott Lugo
Leslie Pierce 
Julianne Ricksecker
Lily Tanzer
Angelika Villagrana 

Guild vice president Jim Bliesner has agreed
 to take over the Guild presidency 
for the 2024/25 fiscal year.   
Kevin Inman has agreed to step up as vice president.
Barbara Leitzel will continue her role as treasurer.
I will continue to serve as membership chair/exhibitions
 and moderator of the
monthly Guild Zoom meetings. 
Mark-Elliott Lugo has stepped down as board secretary but will continue to work with 
Jody Abssy on the
History Committee and the completion of the
Guild’s Centennial Book.

we need a board secretary to take minutes of the Guild’s monthly board meetings (first Tuesday of every month, from 10:15 a.m. to 12 noon).  This is an officer’s position. It would require approximately two hours to prepare the minutes. 
If you are interested in serving as board secretary,
please contact me. 

Katerina Husar Lazarova, our current webmaster,would like to step down but will remain webmaster until we have found a replacement. If you have technical skills and are interested in serving as Artists Guild webmaster, please contact me.  You do not have to become a board member (and attend monthly meetings) for this position.

Several board and Guild members have stepped up to assist me with exhibitions:
Jody Abssy, Jim Bliesner, Kevin Inman,
Leslie Pierce, Julie Weaverling

We also need more help with marketing, promotion
and hospitality. 

There can be co-chairs for any position, or you may 
only work on a small fraction of these positions.   

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me at (619) 222-1034 or 
to discuss how you may assist us.  Thank you.

After the board elections, board members will introduce themselves to you and you will hear an address by the new Guild president.

After the formal meeting, we will, as always, invite attendees to share ONE of their works.  
Since we have less time due to the formal meeting, we would like to extend the art exchange to 12:30 p.m. PDT and hope that will work for you.

To receive the Zoom link for our June 8
General Meeting, 
please RSVP to me by Friday evening, June 7.  
I look forward to seeing you virtually on June 8.
Best wishes, and many thanks for
your continued support of the Artists Guild.

Angelika Villagrana, Interim President
