Membership Benefits

Membership in the Carolina Lettering Arts Society (CLAS) special member prices for CLAS sponsored workshops, retreat and lectures. Also, includes a subscription to the printed Bulletin (details below). Members also receive a printed membership directory updated annually.

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. Please contact Nell Hall or Liz Simmonds for more information.

In an effort to encourage communication within CLAS, we have a Yahoo! Group for members, called CLASofNC.  Because it is a moderated group, members are promised not to be encumbered by spam-like mailings, but remain apprised of events between Bulletins.  All new members are sent an invitation, via email from our Membership Secretary, to join the group.  If you are a member and would like to join the group, please contact Membership Secretary, Kathi Fogleman

Publication - The Bulletin

The Bulletin is published twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, and contains both brief and comprehensive articles, interviews, book reviews, workshop reviews, and members' artwork, CLAS business, and information about events occurring on a regional and national level.

Submissions to the Bulletin should be sent to Annie Cicale.
