Western Alberta SAQA Members Parlour Meeting

Western Alberta SAQA members Parlour meeting
Red Deer, Alberta September 16th

Place : 61 Allan Close Map Google for directions to my home.

Time 930 a.m. -> 2 p.m.

Lunch; Pizza, salad & fruit tea, and juice all provided by me.

Agenda: Bring something to share with members, a project or talk about something you have been working on.

It has been far too long since we got together, so this will be a meet, greet and visit meeting. Any SAQA concerns bring so I can address them before stepping down Jan 2014. Unfortunately, sadly my time is overdue for sitting as your Alberta SAQA Rep and truly will miss continuing on after Jan 2014. It has been way too much fun and truly an honour to be part of such an incredible group of talented artists! "Wow"  I would still like to manage the installment and delivery of "The Best of the West" to The Royal Alberta Museum and "The Burgess Shale" project. If whoever steps up to be our new Alberta SAQA Rep is in aggreement with that.
Otherwise, I will be an active member within the group and help out when asked.

Looking forward to seeing you on Septembert 16th, 2013.

Those that can come please email me
