Hello MAG members and friends,
At the end of last year, our board members gathered for what would prove to be a hugely inspirational retreat. So many great ideas came out of that day which we believe will continue to have a major impact going forward into the future. After months of hard work, we are extremely pleased to announce and show off our newly designed website to the world.
During this process, I sifted through all of the great photos and events from years past. I was struck by how great our community really is. Fun, inspirational, supportive, but most of all we really are a strong, diverse, and vibrant group. Our hope for this website is that in the years to come it will prove to be a valuable hub for our community and help strengthen those bonds. Thank you to everyone for making the Bay Area an awesome place to be for metalsmiths and makers!
I also want to thank our Web Committee (Lauren Engel, Wei Lah Poh, Jarex Schmidt) for taking the reigns. You can see our first site map session to the right. A lot of coffee went into that one! Thank you to the MAG Board for input on the design and arranging many great new member discounts. And, last but not least, a huge thank you to our outstanding web designer Christine Craven with Grey Graphic who has been absolutely awesome to work with. She got what we were trying to accomplish from day one and made our vision a reality.
