Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

Cool!

Something I noticed on the Active guidelines info (http://www.scratchboardsociety.com/u...guidelines.pdf) is that the PayPal address wasn't put in. Under PayPal instructions, line 3, it has (put in our paypal account here) instead of the actual pay to e-mail.

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

And some of you might be asking... why join now, at the end of the year, but just so you know if you join now your dues will also carry you through 2012! So you will get two free months!!

You might also be asking: What are some of the benefits of belonging to ISSA?
The goals of ISSA are to promote interest and excellence in Scratchboard Art by providing international exhibitions opportunities and creating teaching and learning opportunity for individual artists. ISSA hopes to connect artists with others working in the same medium as well. ISSA also provides materials for artists to hand out to help educate the public about scratchboard.

Additional benefits for all levels of members include:
- Connect with a community of other artists working in Scratchboard Art.
- Exposure for members on ISSA's web site
- Receiving e-mail newsletters which will be published quarterly
- Receiving invitations to annual show openings, workshops, and various other society functions
- The ability to hold office and vote on society matters
- Discounted entry fee for the 2012 annual international exhibition and workshops.

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

Thanks to all those who have labored behind the scenes to get this off the floor. Very much appreciated!! I have a feeling this will do wondrous things for scratchboard.

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

Looking at application and noted website url was red starred. I don't have one. Is this a required field?

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

Hi Terri,

That appears to be an oversight as a website should not be a requirement. I will make sure that it gets corrected. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

How much will the entry fee be for the initial ISSA show in 2012? Will the entry fees be consistent for all the annual shows or will they vary depending on the venue? Just curious.

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

Sent in application today but goofed on the PayPal. Sheba put it through and it went in her name (Bobbie Mote) without the note that it was for my membership. Help.

Terri, I'll let them know (if they haven't already seen this) and I guessed by your application that you've seen that the website field is no longer required.

I'll leave the entry fee question for Cathy to answer.

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

Hi, Lorna... I am very excited about this and am only dragging my feet on getting the images together. That's my goal for tomorrow (and not spelled 'manana' because I'm not putting it off another day). Thanks for the reminder through my website...

Diane

Re: ISSA Launched!!! Join Now!

I posted info about ISSA in the forum of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI.org). Quite a few GNSI artists work in scratchboard. Hope some of them find their way to ISSA.

If there's an official press release about joining, please let me know and I'll send it along to the appropriate parties at GNSI.
