    Treasurer’s Report

    • Printmakers Hand fees earned equalled out the awards given out
    • Insurance is due in September and Business License fee is due in October
    • Report has been posted at the studio

     

    PDA/Partners Report

    • No meeting of the Partners this month
    • Margaret submitted our ideas for participating in “Fort-topia” but the Partners seem to have lost our submission so Margaret will follow up
    • Apparently the program is scheduled for mid-October

     

    Membership Report

    • 35 members, no updates
    • We’re about at max for members because storage space is full, Sidonie asked if we would ever consider offering a lower tier of membership that wouldn’t have storage space but would have access to the studio
    • If you have thoughts on that, email board@corvidaepress.com to let us know your opinion
    • At a minimum, we should start keeping a standing waitlist for when spots do open up

     

    Printmakers Hand IV Updates

    • Opening night July 7, 5:30pm
    • If you can help out and bring a snack, appetizer or sweet to share on the opening night, please do–
    • Bring items to Northwinds between 4:30 and 5pm

     

    Print Exchange Updates

    • Prints must be in the drawer by July 30 at the latest – earlier is better so we can hang them for Studio Tour!

     

    Studio Supply Needs/Concerns

    • Andrea has been managing the supply list
    • The photocopier got moved — maybe for Fiddle Tunes Festival? If it doesn’t get moved back next Board meeting, we’ll check with Centrum  — Ed note from Geralynn:  Copier belongs to Centrum. Typically it moves to building 204 (next door) for the summer music camps and returns early August after Blues week. Corvidae members can use it at 204, first floor room on south end.

     

    Studio Tour, August 18-19

    • Margaret will be reaching out to Geralynn to check the status
    • If you’re interested in participating, reach out to Geralynn or email the board, board@corvidaepress.com
    • The board discussed adding some cork board panels for additional print displays – Margaret will look into that
