Invitation to members in Toronto and Southwestern Ontario

To all of our members located in the Toronto area and the areas west of the city, this is a special invitation to contact Regional Representative, DWAYNE WANNER and chat with him about your needs, any special opportunities to gather in a Regional Meeting format and to advise if you are aware of a meeting location that would accommodate SAQA Central Canada members in the city or to the west of Toronto. It is so important to make opportunities available for all members and we understand that a drive to the Perth, Ottawa or Kingston area is just simply impossible for many of members.

We have 22 active members who are in this Southwestern block in and around Toronto, including areas west of the city. SAQA has been very supportive in their recruitment of three SAQA Central Canada Regional Representatives for the new year. This will afford more coverage, a wider representation of our members and the opportunity for Regional Reps to meet with everyone. Can you help??

Dwayne would like to hear from each of you, sharing your willingness to travel to a meeting set up within a reasonable drive for each of you, perhaps in Oakville or Toronto area. Should you be able to volunteer to host a meeting in your studio, or have a meeting room available in your area that would accommodate approximately 20-25 members, please drop Dwayne an email or call him to  share that information. All suggestions and feedback are welcome.

We hope that you  can help make the next Regional meeting a possibility in YOUR area, and encourage the sharing of SAQA news, exhibition opportunities and hopefully for many of you, to plan participation in the upcoming "IDENTITY: CONTEXT and REFLECTION" joint Conference of SAQA/SDA on March 29-April 1st, 2012.

Please feel free to contact: Dwayne Wanner
