Sarasota Surface Design Guild Policies 

WORKSHOPS:  Workshops may be scheduled from time to time.

PLAY-DAYS:  Play-days will be held monthly on the last Sunday of each month. The theme may or may not reflect the program/demo at the previous meeting.

MEETING PROGRAMS:  A program shall be a part of each monthly meeting. The program will be scheduled by the Program Chairman and may be one or a combination of a Lecture, Demonstration, Hands-on-Participation, or Show and Tell. The Guild will give an honorarium to invited teachers and lecturers as follows, unless otherwise contracted:

            $25.00 - 1/2 hour lecture or Show and Tell
            $50.00 - Hour long lecture, demonstration and/or hands-on participation

DUES:  Dues are $25.00 per member per year.  Dues will be prorated to $15 if a member joins after July 1.

MEMBERSHIP:  In February, the Membership Chairman will purge the membership file of non members. 

FEES: All monies for workshops, demonstrations, or any other purpose, will be paid in advance to the Treasurer.  There will be no refunds for non attendance unless there is a waiting list.  The member can find their own replacement if they cannot attend.
RECIPROCITY: The Guild will maintain full reciprocity with other surface design groups to the extent that they may attend our meetings and/or workshops and we may attend theirs.

VISITORS: Visitors are welcome and encouraged to attend general meetings. After attending two meetings, guests are asked to join the Guild. When there is a paid speaker or program with a fee, visitors will be asked to make a monetary contribution as appropriate. Visitors may attend workshops at a non-member price.
POLICY REVIEW: This policy statement will be reviewed and updated periodically by the Board.
