For ease of travel for all members, meetings have been held up and down the Colorado Front Range and through Zoom during the COVID pandemic. Gatherings include a short business meeting followed by topical discussions, demonstrations, artistic "show-n-tell" critiques and often a mosaic swap & shop where members trade tesserae and other items.
CMA Meetings Schedule
Gatherings are usually the second Sunday of each month (except Mother's Day), but...
Since April, 2020, and COVID-19's impact on society, we've been meeting on Zoom ... not as much fun as face to face, but nearly as valuable for learning new techniques and staying in touch. Zoom meetings are being held every OTHER month and normally start at 1 PM Mountain Time, running about two hours. We'd like to begin actual "face to face" meetings as soon as they are possible in the Denver region, but will work to maintain our Zoom presence too. We'll see if that's technically feasible. We enjoy knowing that members don't have to come to the Front Range to be actively involved. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will keep you informed about Zoom access and in-person meeting details in the coming months.
We have three annual official business meetings in January, April and October. Rotating board members are elected in November after their 2 year term is up.
The other months we have a quick recap with important news, planned activities, ranging from demonstrations, presentations, critiques or other topical discussions, and lectures.
One of the highlights of the meetings is "Show and Tell" where work in progress and finished pieces are shown. Each member shares their techniques and if desired, constructive critique is provided.
Once "face to face" physical meetings resume, "Swap and Shop" will let members bring unneeded mosaic treasures and supplies to swap or sell.
The schedule may change in coming months so please contact us by email if interested in attending in person or on Zoom. Our email is: email@example.com.
Finally, please be respectful when bringing swap and shop items. Do not leave them behind if they are not snatched up. Thank you for understanding.
