Group members of the MCBA Visual Journal Collective who are members of the group's Facebook or Yahoo Lists have already been notified that member Suzanne Hughes is now co-coordinator for this group.
I wanted to post about it on my blog because I'm very excited that Suzanne has agreed to come on board in this position, and because I know that newer members might not be on either of the info lists, or check the "page" for the Collective here on this blog very often. I don't want them to miss this exciting news.
Suzanne will be handling the Yahoo list (also assessing its utility to the group), working with the Facebook list, and checking into some other possible ways the group can communicate effectively and quickly and visually.
Suzanne has also been helping me work out what to put on the schedule for 2013 and she will continue to be involved in that capacity. If you have any questions about the group or have suggestions you should feel free to contact either of us.
You can visit Suzanne at her blog, Suzanne I Am. For now blog updates about the meetings will continue to be posted on Roz Wound Up and topics will be listed on the MCBA Visual Journal Collective Page. We'll keep you posted about any changes.
We've devised some fun group activities and are organizing some interesting speakers for 2013 so I hope that you'll save every third Monday of the month for attending the Collective. (Typically we meet from 7 to 9 p.m. but the page will list any earlier or later starts because of topic needs.)
Suzanne is an avid journal keeper and binder of books. She is an art teacher. She believes in the power of observing and sketching. She has been a long-time member of the group who has not only helped with meetings in the past but presented at meetings. Our group is continuing to grow and Suzanne has already been a vital part of that. I'm very excited about how she'll help the group go forward into the future. I hope you'll all join me in welcoming and supporting Suzanne in this position.
P.S. Suzanne is so good at this stuff that she has already set up a new Flickr group for the MCBA Visual Journal Collective! (I'm so challenged you know that never would have materialized with me!) Thank you Suzanne. Now members have a way to share and discuss their art with the images present.
