As crafters are all aware, there are rules which address protocol and conduct at craft shows. These rules are intended to ensure a good and safe craft show for all participants.

In general, most crafters are excellent to adhere to the rules.

Yet due to some incidents, it has become necessary to address those incidents where crafters have refused to adhere to the rules.

Therefore, as of the craft show in March 2001, violation of the rules of the craft show will be addressed in the following manner:

 

  • At the first board meeting following the show, the board will discuss and reach a decision regarding the incident.

  • Crafters who refuse to respect the rules of the craft show will:

  1. Receive a formal warning or

  2. Have their membership suspended for a period of one (1) year or

  3. Permanently revoked.

  • The formal warning does not necessarily have to be issued prior to membership being revoked.

  • The decision of the Board will be final.

  • Crafter will be notified by registered mail.

 

Respectfully,

Board of Directors

2023
