Board Protocol: Annual Art-in-the-Park (AIP) Participation
This resolution has three sections:
1. All TSAA members in good standing are eligible to
participate in Art in the Park regardless of their level of participation in
other TSAA activities.
2. The easel fee for Art in the Park will be $45 per easel.
Members who participate in two meetings in the 12 months preceding the Art in
the Park event will receive a discount of $20 per easel.
3. New members who have juried into TSAA in the 12 months preceding the Art in the Park event will be eligible for participation at the time of their initial dues payment, having then become qualified members in good standing. They will receive the $20 discount in recognition of their new membership.
This resolution is intended to recognize that all juried
members in good standing should have access to all organization activities. It
is intended to enhance participation of the membership in our signature,
yearly, promotional activity. It supports the encouragement of newly juried
members to immediately begin to participate in this event with rest of the
membership. There should be no better way to become an active part of the
organization than by spending the weekend in the park with the active members.
In support of these resolutions, the Board is committed to
maintaining complete and accurate attendance information to identify those
eligible for discounts, and, in addition, to promote participation among new
members and support them with information to prepare them to participate in the
The Board is committed to encourage attendance in bi-monthly
organization meetings by providing programming that is interesting, useful and
informative to the membership and by offering additional social time for formal
and informal member interaction.
