About Subgroups

Special Interest Subgroups

These groups plan their own meetings and other activities, typically meeting three to six (or more) times per year at shops and other facilities around the state.

The process of forming a new group is simple and straightforward. A simple petition of the Board of Directors will result in recognition and publicity in TouchUps plus group email and financial support.

An organizational meeting date is set and the group elects or appoints a contact person. The group members themselves decide what direction to pursue and how often they will meet. The organizer does not have to be an expert in the area of interest. They only need is to take the initiative and be willing to organize.
