SDBA is a resilient organization. It not only survived but thrived during the pandemic. Our membership over the past year has grown by 70%. As more of our offerings were made available via zoom, more artists found us online. This year we hope to not just sustain this growth but continue to build both our membership and our reputation as a pre-eminent book arts association. 

We have plans to build and grow additional membership benefits so join or renew today so you won’t miss out on new perks. We look forward to seeing you at a monthly meeting or workshop in 2023.

Membership is yearly based on the month you join. For example, if you joined in November 2022, your membership will last until November 2023. SDBA will send you a notification when your membership is up for renewal.
