Membership 2020/2021 Announcement


As we are all aware by now, Covid restrictions have limited what we can do as a guild this year. The decision was made to continue on with Zoom meetings until otherwise able to meet. Please be sure to follow this blog as well as our Facebook and/or Instagram accounts for notification of Zoom meeting information. 

After much deliberation, we have made the choice to require membership registration for this year despite the change in structure, and as part of that to ask for a $15 membership fee. This is just less than half of our regular membership fee; even though we are meeting virtually, we still have expenses, and want to ensure the continuation of our guild for the future. 

Expenses include the Zoom membership fee (free accounts are very limited and don't serve our needs), any small honorariums we may want to offer our Zoom guests in future, and any unexpected things that may arise. We need a financial reserve to allow us to rent space when that is an option again, and to make sure we can stay in business! 

If you feel you cannot afford this membership fee this year, please let us know by emailing or by messaging executive member Laura Van Niejenhuis directly on Facebook. We will make it work for you.

If you feel able to add an extra donation to your membership fee of $15, this will be used to support our members who cannot afford the membership fee this year due to Covid hardships. Thank you for sticking with the SGG this year and for your support. 

Please fill out the membership form found here on the website or via the Facebook page, and email it to, and send an etransfer to the same email address, noting your name. You can find the form and further information on our Membership Page. 

As always, if you have questions, please email or leave comments here or on the Facebook or Instagram page for us to get back to you on.
