President Update_March 12, 2010

I want to give all current members an update on the progress of our new woodturning chapter.
Our David Ellsworth demonstration on March 18th is fast approaching.  Cost is $60 payable in advance or at the door.  If you want to attend but haven’t signed up, please contact Ernest Hilderbrand at hilderbrande@missouri.edu.

Our first official meeting will be held on April 18th from 1pm-4pm.  We will be meeting at Tom Stauder’s shop in Columbia MO.  I will send out directions closer to the date.  We will have a presentation by Matt Keim from Pacific MO on turning thin walled natural edge bowls.  Some Matt Keim’s artwork can be found on his website.  http://www.keimartworks.com/

Our website has been revamped and lots of information has been posted on the site.  As the president and also the webmaster, I need some information from each member.  I will be sending each of you an email requesting information that will be posted on the member roster section of the website.

We also have a photo gallery section on the website. We want to feature two items from each member.   Please send me two digital images of your artwork and I will get them posted. http://midmowoodturners.missouri.org

Along with our website we are still looking for an official logo for our chapter.   Do you know anyone artistic and willing to donate their time to help create a logo for our new chapter.  If so please let me know.

We still need someone to be the newsletter editor for the chapter.   If you are willing to create the newsletters please contact me.   Here are some examples of club newsletters to give you an idea on typical content.  It doesn’t have to be to fancy and most of the content will come from other members.  Sections like President’s report, minutes from last meeting and future event details will be provided.

Please feel free to contact me with any ideas, questions, or concerns to help make our chapter a success.
