Get to know your current GNSI Board members via photos (not all serious!*) and brief bios. *Note: the silly picture is the result of eight straight hours at the annual Board meeting; chocolate flows like a river, but a LOT of serious GNSI work gets done! Board group photos by Bob Guth. Also pictured: Virge Kask, GNSI Bookkeeper, and Leslie Becker, GNSI Administrative Assistant.
Congratulations to Trudy Nicholson, who received the Special Service Award 2014 at the Boulder Conference Awards Banquet. This award was developed for long-term dedication to the Guild through efforts of volunteerism, service, teaching, mentoring, or other ongoing and substantial support of the organization.
Current GNSI members in good standing are invited to submit their work to be showcased on the GNSI Facebook page. You may submit one piece of art, a link to your own website or portfolio page, and a brief paragraph about you and your work. Please fill out the short form here so we have consistent information to display, then upload your image using the link.
Do you have any news and information that might be of
interest to your fellow GNSI members? Be sure to share it with
