Hi Everyone,

BAA Newsletter ~ October 2022

Dear BAA members and friends,
So, let’s have a short newsletter this month! The BAA calendar is filled with fun classes. Stay up to date by checking the calendar on line at Calendar – Bartlesville Art Association. You can also find current “CLASSES” on our website MarLo is doing a great job of getting the word about upcoming classes and events so it makes my job easier.
Your Board will be having a full day meeting on Friday, November 4 to have a strategic planning session. As we get busier, we need a “roadmap” of the goals we want to achieve – like increasing membership, providing scholarships, and increasing visibility as the “go to” organization for visual arts in our community. If you have any suggestions, please let us know. If you are interested in participating, let me know.
SAVE THE DATE!! We will have a members’ only early Christmas gathering on Tuesday evening, December 6 at 6:30 pm with a festive spread of goodies and drinks. We will have a short members annual meeting to introduce your board members and address any necessary business during this meeting. If you want to know if your membership is current, please feel free to call the BAA office 918-332-8463,  Monday – Thursday,11 am – 3 pm.
Follow us on Facebook!

Members of the BAA participated in the first Community Fest. As a 501©3, the BAA is the recipient of volunteer funds to be used for our scholarship program.
