You are invited to join us and other VMAA members at our annual general meeting. While we can't be together in body, you're invited to join us online while wearing your favourite (and most comment-evoking) adornments to celebrate the last year's milestones.
The AGM is an opportunity for our board to report on the year and for the membership to elect board members and committee chairs for the upcoming year.
Only members in good standing will be eligible to vote. If you haven't yet done so, please renew or purchase a membership beforehand.
For a more detailed agenda
Are you passionate about metal and jewellery arts?

Don't be shy! We'd love to hear from you. Members and non-members are eligible to run for board and committee positions. If a nominee is not a current VMAA member, they will be required to become a member if elected. Please visit our volunteer page for more information on each position. We are seeking a Secretary for the 2020-2021 term The secretary is an integral role in any board composition. They are responsible for attending regular board meetings, taking minutes, and their role may extend to providing documentation and archival support. It's a great entry-level board position for those new to nonprofit board service and a fulfilling role for the experienced board member.

A few recommendations to make the most of your remote experience:
Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to set up your computer
Keep yourself muted unless called on to speak
You can connect using any computer, tablet or phone – however, we highly recommend you join using a laptop or desktop for the best experience
If you have headphones that you can plug into your device, please use them. This greatly helps to reduce echo from speaker feedback!
