YOU can be a Workshop Host!

The Program Committee is looking for guild members willing to serve as the workshop

host for each of the scheduled workshops this year.  The host manages the workshop: get the speaker settled, help him/her as needed, arrange lunch for the speaker and

participants and ensures the room is clean at the end of the day.  See Hosting a Workshop for details.

Please consider taking a turn as hostess.  If you are interested or have questions, please email
