TSAA Bylaws Omission and Revision, Article III Section 7

When I was transposing the bylaws from a hard copy to the TSAA website, the following section was inadvertently omitted.

Present members shall retain their status as artist members as long as their annual dues are paid on or before June 30 of current year. If an artist fails to pay dues by June 30 of current year he/she will still retain membership so long as dues are paid by June 30 of following year. If an artist elects to pay dues in this fashion (once every two years) then the following  assessment will apply: Payment for year missed will be the usual fee of $20 plus $5 late fee for a total of $25. Then the current year dues will apply of $20 by June 30. If dues are not brought up to date for both years by June 30 of that second year, artists will be required to jury into TSAA again to receive approval by the Membership Committee.

Note: This omission under Article III will move from section 3 to section 7.

NOTE: At the October 9 general meeting, Ron will discuss and ask for a vote to alter Article III section 7 with the following language.

Section 7(New)

The Membership year runs from June 30 of the current year to June 30 of the following year.

Members will retain their membership as long as they remain dues paid members in good standing.

Dues for the coming year will be due by June 30 of the current year. If dues are paid after June 30, a late fee of $5 will be applied. The member will retain good standing if the late dues and the following year’s dues are paid by June 30 of the following year. Members not paid up by June 30 the second year will lose their good standing and membership. Loss of membership will require re-jurying.


Article IV - DUES

Section 1

The annual dues, as determined by the Board, shall be payable by June 30 of the current year. If not paid by June 30 a late fee of $5 will be applied for late payment. Non-payment as defined in Article III Section 7 will result in loss of membership. The President will be exempt from paying due.

ATTENTION:  Photography Category 

"The Tri-State Arts Association is implementing a new pre-screening process for artists jurying in the photography category. The club receives more artists applying in this category than any other and yet only a small percentage is accepted into the club. The TSAA wishes to change this trend by asking these artists to submit digital files to our email so that they may be reviewed by a panel, and constructive feedback be provided for a more successful jurying process. Acceptable entries will be judged on composition, color, tonal values, editing processes, and creativity. Please submit (5) JPEG images at web quality at least 2 weeks in advance to the jurying date."
