The jury process for the Western Heritage Artists Association is as follows:
- July 15 (approx) – packets are sent out to each person who has indicated an interest in joining the WHA. The names are gathered throughout the year from a variety of sources. In this packet, we have the juror’s criteria, policies and procedures, last year’s program, by-laws, and an application.
- August 15 – applications must be received, along with five photos of their work. The membership chairman chooses three jurors (usually from the membership, but that is not required) to evaluate the applicants’ work.
- September 1 (approx) – letters are sent out informing applicants whether they were accepted or not, returning the photos to those who were not accepted.
- September 15 (approx) – annual dues letters are sent out to all members, new and old.
We usually gain about six to ten new members each year.
