Membership to CLAS includes a subscription to the Bulletin (see below), as well as notice and special member prices for CLAS sponsored workshops and lectures. Members have access to a lending library containing newsletters of other groups in the US and abroad. Videos, DVDs and books on calligraphic subjects are also available for individual or group study.
In an effort to encourage communications within Carolina Lettering Arts Society, we have a Yahoo! Group just for our members, called CLASofNC. There are many advantages of having a Yahoo! Group. This internet location provides our members with current information about calligraphy in North and South Carolina. CLASofNC is a place where you can seek information, encourage dialog with our own members and even get caught up with your calligraphy buddies. New members are invited to join our group by e-mail. Joining is a simple online process and mail receipt can be customized. Neither cost nor a Yahoo e-mail address is necessary. We ask that you send messages that pertain only to calligraphy or items that would be of interest to lettering artists. Please no attachments, spam, jokes, urban legends, or the like. If you do not get an invitation, please contact Kathi Fogleman kathifogleman^yahoo#com
All members receive an updated membership directory each year.
The membership year is from July 1st through June 30th. Annual dues are $30. Additional financial support from Supporting Members ($50) or Patron Members ($100) is always welcomed. Amounts over $25 are generally considered as deductible contributions for tax purposes. Please contact Membership Secretary Kathi Fogleman.
The Bulletin is published twice a year and contains both brief and comprehensive articles, interviews, book reviews, reviews of workshops, members' artwork, CLAS business information, and information about events occurring on a regional and national level. Submissions to the Bulletin should be sent to Annie Cicale.
