The Search is on for a New BAG President; Thanks, Barb!

BAG Members,

BAG is having a great year, and it is only the halfway mark! I hope you have enjoyed the programs and are ready for our biennial juried show in September. All signs are that it is shaping to be extraordinary.

I would like to ask you to join with the Board as we plan for 2020 and beyond. I am finishing my terms as BAG President at the end of this year, and we now need to start a search for someone to step into that position.

It is a job that has varied roles and responsibilities that keep BAG building on its rich past and readying the organization for the future. It is a job for someone to bring their ideas for the growth of the organization, and to support the membership as active book artists in the community. It is suited for someone who has had some experience with all-volunteer organizations and enjoys the behind-the-scenes work that supports the stability of the organization.

If you have an interest in serving and would like to talk to me personally or to someone on the Board, please email and we will respond quickly. More information about being a board member is at

Thank you for the opportunities I have had in my role as President of BAG. I do plan to stay on the Board for two additional years, and in that capacity can support the transition.

Barb Macks
BAG President
