CHAPTER BULLETIN
February 21, 2017

Hello Chapter Officer:

This is the second monthly email intended to offer your chapter useful, value-added resources directed to your chapter president, newsletter editor, and webmaster. We want to deliver the rich content your chapter members need to grow, connect, explore, and thrive in the areas of woodturning that are important to them. Timely news, announcements, and information will be sent separately.

 


GUEST MEMBERSHIP
AAW membership is the perfect complement to a chapter membership. Newer turners will expand their skills more quickly and safely, while more experienced turners will have an opportunity to learn even more new techniques.

We encourage you to take a minute at your next meeting to invite club members to give AAW a try as a free Guest. Invite any non-AAW members to sign up as a free Guest to kick AAW's tires for 60-days. Guests have access to a broad sampling of AAW's publications and services. This month, AAW offers its Guests a portion of the February issue of American Woodturner, which includes the project, "Make a Better Mallet," by Janet A. Collins.

Click the links below for talking points to share with your members PowerPoint slides or PDF.

SHOP TIP
Each month we will furnish chapters with content that can be shared in chapter newsletters.

This month we're offering a tip,"Using Anti-Seize Lubricant," by Leon Olson. Click one of the following links to download this tip in Word.doc, Word.docx, or PDF.

BEST CHAPTER NEWSLETTER

AAW VIDEO SOURCE
Video Source is a useful tool that offers access to online turning videos pre-screened for quality and safety. The videos are searchable by category and keyword. The tool is perfect for the newer turner who wants to develop skills and feel more comfortable at the lathe, as well as the more experienced turner who wants to find a new project or learn a new technique. It's available to everyone!
 
We encourage you to make AAW Video Source available to your chapter members. The graphics below can be embedded on your website and linked directly to Video Source.

Below are two versions of a Video Source button for your website (hover over logo, right click, and save). If you have questions or problems, contact Kim Rymer at kim@woodturner.org.
