Houston Metal Arts Guild members will cast their ballots for the 2016-2017 Board of Directors at the annual business meeting to be held April 21, 2016.  The Guild is seeking volunteers (like YOU?) who are willing to contribute their ideas, skills and vision to help guide HMAG through its upcoming fiscal year.   Volunteers need not be business professionals nor have prior experience as directors of a non-profit organization.


Do you like what HMAG currently brings to your life as a member?  Great!  HMAG needs your energy and enthusiasm on the Board to ensure that the educational workshops, informative programs, exhibition opportunities and social events continue.

Do you have ideas about how HMAG can be improved?  Even better!  Join the Board.  It’s the perfect way to lend your voice and fresh ideas to HMAG’s ongoing mission to serve the metal artists of the Houston area. You (yes, YOU!) can help shape the future of the Guild.



Curious?  Intrigued, perhaps?  Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

What sort of time commitment is expected of a board member?

HMAG’s Board of Directors (BOD) meets on an as needed basis, usually quarterly,  to discuss the organization’s business and to plan activities.   Minutes of each BOD meeting are posted on the members-only section of  The minutes are an excellent way to get a glimpse of the Board in action and the business that is handled at the meetings.

Other than the BOD meetings, the time commitment varies by board position.  Some of positions, such as the Treasurer,  require small amounts of time each month while others, like Workshop Coordinator,  require concentrated segments of time once or twice a year.


Do I need to be a very experienced metal artist in order to sit on the Board?

Definitely not!  Every volunteer brings a wealth of  life and/or professional experiences that can be used to further the Guild’s mission.


Which Board Position is a good fit for me?  What would I have to do?

Contact Terry Fromm or Patty Scott  to discuss these questions- and any others!
