New and Exciting News for the FASM website!
In the next few months FASM will be launching a new website. During the build of the new website there may be a delay in getting some information put back up. Example the Members Gallery may not be up for approximately a week.
Reason for the Change: The FASM website is currently using a very old version of WordPress, based on the website host provider we cannot upgrade to the newest version without impacting the current website.
We are still in the planning stages and will update members as to the date when the new website will be started. All attemps will be made to minimize the disruption to the website and information contained on it. We appreciate your patience during this time of change.
FASM is looking for a few hours of your time. The following positions need to be filled…
Events Coordinator - required to attend Executive meetings, works with a team, organizes events and special activities within FASM
Newsletter Editor - puts together 3 newsletters a year, uses spell-check with abandon, works under the guidance of Louise Botha, Communications Chair
Photographer - takes amazing pictures at FASM events
Studio Tour volunteers - we are always looking for individuals to help with Studio Tour, whether you distribute brochures or help check the route in the days before the tour, your time is of value to us.
Please look in the Milton Community Services Guide book for lists of fabulous WORKSHOPS for all ages at the Milton Centre for the Arts!!!
