Exhibition Coordinators: Our goal is to offer an all-member exhibition on an annual basis. Research and track the availability of regional exhibition sites, and get MAPAPA placed on the exhibition calendars of these sites.
Education Coordinator: We have good ideas for educational seminars and MD Hall is readily available. Coordinate one or two such events a year and develop new ideas for the future.
Fundraising Coordinator: For those with a talent for writing grants and soliciting funds from donors, this committee focuses on raising both money and awareness of the programs offered by MAPAPA.
Membership Liaison: MAPAPA sends e-mails to the membership and receives questions about membership. Our correspondence needs to be composed in conjunction with our events and calendar.
Authors: Do you like to write? MAPAPA’s stories need to be told. Writing can contribute to our Web site, Newsletter, and also be submitted to regional media to promote our events and organization.
Sponsorship Coordinator: The purpose of this subcommittee is to seek goods and/or services such as art materials from manufacturers to supplement special events organized by MAPAPA. This includes art materials for members attending the annual meeting and assisting the Paint Annapolis coordinator with regional or national support for the painting competition.
Publicity: We would like to reach out to regional media on a more regular basis, to further our mission and promote our events. We would like help in listing contacts and methods of submission.
