We decided to start sending members a periodic newsletter to keep you informed and up-to-date on what’s new with SAG, remind you of the benefits of membership that you may not be taking advantage of yet, and let you know how you can participate and help us do more to promote you and your art. I hope you enjoy our first edition and find it useful.
