Promotion from Friend to Associate Member
Promotion from Friend to Associate (ASEA) is through a promotion panel. We expect you to have an exhibiting record and to have had work selected for the Horse in Art exhibition. Your work will normally be assessed at the Horse in Art by Full Members. For more details please contact the Promotions Secretary Sian firstname.lastname@example.org
Promotion from Associate to Full Member
Those members of the Society whose work demonstrates an outstanding level of artistic achievement may be elected Full Members of the Society. In judging candidates full account will be taken of their performance and reputation beyond the Society.
In order that their work may be judged by Full Members the candidates must have at least two works accepted for the main annual exhibition in two years of a three year period.
The Promotions Secretary and panel, who, if satisfied with their candidacy, will then invite them to put forward a portfolio for consideration at a venue – to be decided – to be assessed by those Full Members who are present and a 66% YES vote will be required to determine promotion. A minimum of ten Full members present is the target. The Full Members aim to take into account the work done by the artists outside the Society, their record and their reputation.
The portfolio at the Horse in Art Exhibition Private View, or Annual General Meeting will be assessed by those Full Members who are present and a 66% YES vote will be required to determine promotion. A minimum of ten Full members present is the target.
If successful, those elected will receive a certificate and be entitled to use SEA after their name.
NB: For a Friend or Associate to have their exhibition record count towards promotion, they must have paid all their subscriptions in full for the qualifying period.
PORTFOLIOS (Associate Member to Full Member)
Portfolios will be assessed at the Annual General Meeting by those Full members present and a 66% YES vote is required to determine promotion.
