Dear Puppeteers and Puppet enthusiasts:
It’s MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TIME again.
Seems like we only just renewed for this year. Time flies. This has been such a busy year for the Puppeteers of America. We are celebrating our 75th anniversary year, and held another amazing National Puppetry Festival in Atlanta. Guilds hosted events for our National Day of Puppetry and many other puppet- related activities. We hope that you’ll continue to be part of PofA and enjoy the fun!
We’d ask that you take the time now to either renew your membership or join our organization for the first time. If you have already renewed, we thank you for your much-appreciated support.
For so many of us, discovering an organization that was made up of like-minded creative puppeteers and enthusiasts was a happy surprise. Through PofA, we were first introduced to the wide and varied and wonderful world of puppetry. We went to festivals where we were encouraged and supported in our efforts by older or more experienced puppeteers. We joined a Guild where the fellowship was enjoyed throughout the year. Puppeteers of America brought us together.
Your membership supports our festivals, publications and website, as well as day-to-day functions of the organization made up of volunteer staff, consultants, regional directors, festival staff, committees and so many others. We do count on your membership to maintain these services provided by PofA.
Many members find that this is a convenient time to combine their renewals with a contribution to the Puppeteers of America. Your tax-deductible donations to the Puppeteers of America allow more people to attend our festivals, underwrite the creation of new works and help us in our ongoing operations. All gifts are tax deductible under IRS Section 501(c)(3).
We cannot exist without you.
