Email forwarding – not

Imagemakers does NOT forward email to our members. The issue is that we have gotten up to a dozen requests per month to send this, that, or the other worthy, wonderful, meaningful, purposeful, world-changing, artistically-masterful event that comes with “Please forward this to all your members!!!”


I did that for a while, and got lots of angry emails back, demanding to be removed from the emails list, because of being deluged with email; because they thought it was spam. Or folks asked to be on the “ImageMakers only” list, and that I keep a separate email list for “others.”

If you are an ImageMakers member, you have everyone’s email address yourself. It comes in the roster. If it’s so important that all members need to see it (in your opinion) send it out yourself. 

If it’s an ImageMakers event, or member’s event, I’ll post it on the blog.

I try to limit what I send out to dues; gatherings and our own shows. I’m keeping the email to a minimum to keep everyone happy, and on the list so you don’t miss actually important news.

2017 Dues Increase

At the Steering Committee meeting of 12/10/15 the committee decided that we will need to increase the annual dues to $50 per year. Naturally there was some debate about this, but the simple fact is that we ran out of working funds.

Many of you have already paid your $40 membership fees for 2016, and we’re hoping that will carry us through. YOUR DUES FOR 2016 ARE PAID AT $40.  100% of our membership fees go the the running of ImageMakers: lights, display racks; food; room rental and so on.

We regret the necessity of making this adjustment, but feel that ImageMakers is worth it, and we hope you’ll agree.

As of January 1, 2017, (13 months from now) dues will be $50.

Thank you all for understanding.
