January 2021 Newsletter
Updated: Apr 9, 2021
Because we have lots to share, we are showing double the love this month with a second, or new and improved, newsletter. Our monthly newsletter has been a bit hit and miss over the last year, so we thought it was time to work harder at producing a monthly newsletter. Starting with this newsletter we will be producing and emailing you this publication four to six days after our board meetings. The new format will include the following sections:
Board Meeting Minutes (summary)
Announcements and calls for Artists
The DCAA Event Schedule and updates on Events
Additional announcements and calls for artists from sources outside the organization
The next Membership and Board meetings date, time and locations
If you have something you would like to see in the newsletter; and event you would like to promote or other information, please send it to email@example.com no later than 1 day before the current month's board meeting for publication in the following month's newsletter.

Status of the Grant
The grant has been extended until schools are back to in classroom teaching and the program can be executed.
Membership Meetings and COVID Restrictions
The Governor's current restrictions will not allow for public gatherings such as a full membership meeting. Therefore, a decision was made to conduct membership meetings via ZOOM or other video platform during this time. Mel Archer, Event Chair, has volunteered to host our upcoming membership meeting on ZOOM and Kimberly Krueger, Marketing Chair, will be the cohost monitoring the chat feed during the meeting. A link to join this meeting is at the end of this email.
Due to COVID restrictions and additional scheduling changes we are going to continue with our planning of published events with the understanding that locations, dates and times will be tentative and subject to change. Additionally, the September, 2-day Art Market has been removed from the schedule. In its place, another Frost Fair event may be scheduled for November 12 and 13. The tentative location will be the High Desert Music Hall.
The process for sending updates and changes for our website to Dan Mooney was discussed and decided upon. All updates/changes will be sent to Kristi Stone, Chair, for approval and forwarding to Dan.
The format and schedule for a monthly membership newsletter was discussed. We will be mailing out a monthly newsletter to current newsletter subscribers. Please direct your friends to be added to our mailing list! To add a name and email to this list click here.
All entries/data (outside the DCAA board) for this newsletter must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 1 day before the current month's full board meeting for the following month's newsletter. Anything added to the newsletter must be approved by the voting board members before publishing.
