Membership

We meet on the first Thursday of the month in the Ken Miller Auditorium, 3330 Civic Center Drive, Torrance, CA 90503. There are no meetings scheduled during July and December. The May meeting is on the SECOND Thursday of the month due to conflicting events at our venue. Refreshments are served at 6:45pm. Meeting begins at 7pm.

Membership is open to everyone.

Any new members who would like to participate in any of our faires need to be juried first by the BOD (board of directors). This is to ensure that all items are handcrafted or hand embellished creations. You need not live in Torrance, CA to become a member, but all items must be hand crafted or assembled by you.

Membership fees are $30 annually (membership runs from May to April).

All members receive these benefits:
• Monthly newsletter via e-mail
• Free admission to all TCG programs and meetings
• Monthly newsletter in print or digital format
• Community involvement and the opportunity to become a member of the TCG BOD
• Bi-annual arts and craft faire participation eligibility (see definition of active status member)

Active membership is required for active status booth fees. In order to be considered active, you must attend five of ten meetings in a membership year and provide approximately three service hours during the membership year (example of service hours: refreshments, presentations, ornament assembly, stamping/addressing mailers, making phone calls, service at the faire, etc.).
