Due to the cancellation of the 2020 conference, the NCECA Annual Members’ Meeting was held virtually October 4, 2020.

The purpose of the Annual Members’ Meeting is to share reports and provide a forum for member comments.

Members are NCECA’s foundation and reason for being. Founded in 1966 with the goal of ending a sense of isolation among ceramic artists and educators working with clay as a medium of artistic expression, NCECA has sought to create and sustain a network of camaraderie, knowledge, and information sharing. This first Virtual NCECA Members Meeting was produced in cooperation with the American Crafts Council to provide an opportunity for NCECA Members to connect and hear from NCECA leadership about work being undertaken to address challenges and opportunities of these changing times.
