Volunteers & Credits

The American Print Alliance depends on your help to do so much! We especially want to thank two major donors. Lyn Bishop of Zama Online Design contributed her time and creative talents to design this web site, and Arches Paper has awarded us several challenge grants of $5,000 to increase the number of subscribers. (So please subscribe now, we need to count you!)



Thanks To Our Volunteers!
Here are some people we want to thank for the positions that they fill as volunteers:

Our board members representing their councils. Please thank all the people who serve or have served on our board of directors, they give their time twice - to their "home" council and to the Alliance!

Val Dibble, our community outreach coordinator, who organizes college internships with the Alliance as well as working on communications with the greater printmaking community, from workshops to supplies manufacturers. Val is supervisor of the printmaking area at Kennesaw State University in Georgia.
