MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES

Members can choose an affiliation with one or more specific arts disciplines that reflect their background, profession, or cultural interests (see the application for categories.) Alternatively, they may join as Sustaining members; this is a general category for persons who enjoy or support the arts. Sustaining members may later apply for affiliation in an artistic area. Regardless of their category, members may join committees and engage in activities focusing on any artistic discipline.
