Old Business

  • CSA: Robin proposed that BGAC self-fund this project. It would be implemented by the members of the Program Committee, and some artist members have already expressed interest. Questions raised concerning the value to the artists and financial risk to BGAC. Following discussion, Marilyn moved that we proceed to develop this project with a feasibility evaluation and final approval in April, based on the numbers of artists recruited and shares sold. / Dave 2 /
