Notice Regarding Renewals (July 2020):

Dear members:

Recent attempts to update and/or pay membership dues has resulted in some payments being declined. The board is working with Wells Fargo to open a new bank account and will again be accepting payments beginning in August.

Thank you for understanding and continuing to support The Society of American Miniaturists.

Wonderful Workshop Weekend Update - Please Read!

Dear SAM Members,

After much consideration, the board members unanimously voted to cancel the Wonderful Workshop Weekend for 2020.  It was not an easy decision; however, it became a little simpler once the Marriott Courtyard described what COVID-19 protocols the hotel would have in effect for our safety and the safety of their personnel.  These measures would have made every aspect of our weekend very difficult, if not impossible.

I want to thank all the members who signed up to teach and for the work they did to put together their classes.  I understand some of them may want to offer their kits for sale. 

There are some details that will need to be worked out, specifically how to facilitate the annual meeting, and sending out pictures the prototypes for the Birthday Party in Dallas, and we will send out more information as we work through these issues.

In the meantime, take care and stay well.  See you in Dallas and/or Killeen 2021.
