If you are interested in joining The Pastel Society of North Carolina, annual dues are $40.
Additionally, there is a one-time charge of $65 for an artist’s bio and gallery page on our website (in addition to the annual dues). Please submit your bio, head shot, and three paintings (with titles) using this form. You may also use the same form to update your bio and photos at any time.
The History of the PSNC is now available. Written and researched by our Historian, Chris Kanoy, the history follows the organization from formation to present status today.
We have also added a new Signature Membership level – read more information about how to earn points toward this designation here.
For further clarification regarding calendar renewal versus rolling renewal of memberships:
We’ve seen from other Societies, a more effective way to conduct our membership renewals, and are instituting a Calendar renewal vs a Rolling Renewal.
What that means is that everyone’s renewal will come due on January 1, 2018 regardless of when you joined. If you were a renewing member last year and your renewal anniversary was, let’s say in July, then your renewal will be prorated. If you’re a new member you’ll also be prorated. However, come January if you renew in March, then your membership renewal will no longer be prorated. At that point we will have a January 1 to December 31 calendar year.
The reason to do this is just to make our illustrious treasurer’s life easier. Anne Kiefaber keeps immaculate records but this will clean it up so very much.
Many Thanks for understanding and working with us on this small but important issue!
