New Board of Directors for 2012

Sahuaro "Condo" and Full Moon Rising - S Farley

Arizona Plein Air Painters embarks on its 5th year with new changes in the board, and new blood and enthusiasm working behind the scenes to set up great opportunities for our members.
This year, our esteemed founder and past president David Haskell has chosen to continue on the Board of  Directors for APAP, and past vice president Cody DeLong is working on personal projects, although I suspect we'll see him now and again helping with various shows and paint-outs.

The newly-selected Board of Directors for 2012 are:
President Sandy Farley, Vice-President Becky Joy, Treasurer Barbara Donahue, and Secretary Mary Lois Brown, and Member-at-Large David Haskell
Committee Chairpersons
Executive Sandy Farley, Shows Becky Joy, Paint-Out Coordinator Cindy Carrillo, Publicity & Marketing Rita Goldner & Jeff Dolan, and Website Sandy Farley
While details for our Annual Juried Members Show in Sedona -- and publicity for that event -- are being worked out, we'd all like to encourage you to step up and volunteer for a task on one of the committees, or for a larger role if you like.  If you can only do single tasks, like baking for the show reception, helping with artwork intake, sitting the show for a few hours, working on the club members' biography book, or other individual tasks, please take a few moments right now to write to one of the Committee Chairs and tell them how you'd like to help.
Just like the cactus condo at the top of this blog, there are plenty of places you'd be at home in this organization, and it's just no fun if we don't have you here with us making our organization better for our fellow artists.  If you don't have available time for the show, then how about showing us a wonderful place to paint by hosting a paint-out near you?  It's so easy -- pick your time & place, then tell Cindy, Sandy or Rita, and we'll publicize it for you.  What could be easier?  And what a fun way to meet other Arizona artists!
I hope your 2012 is full of promise and fulfillment, and I hope APAP will be part of the reason it's better for you.
