3. Seeking Member Feedback:

Q: Member Meetings: Help us learn how to connect with our members by giving feedback including but not limited to?
– Do you think MCA should hold regularly scheduled member meetings? How often?
– How about regional meetings – a time to connect with other members in your area
– And / or media specific meetings – a time to connect with other makers like you
– Do you like meeting by Zoom indefinitely or should we try to meet in person once safe to do so?

Q: Now that the pandemic is established and many of the challenges are known and/or have caused longer term shifts – what do you / craft artists need from the MCA? How can we help now?

We hope to see you!
