SGFC Handbook

MEMBERSHIP OVERVIEW

Meetings

The SGFC monthly meeting is held on the third Wednesday of every month. We also host a monthly happy hour at favorite local bars. Occasionally, there will be other special events, like a guest speaker, a weekend portfolio review or a seasonal party.

Look for meeting announcements in the SGFC newsletter, Facebook, Twitter and Slack. You can also check out the SGFC calendar for upcoming events.

  • Members can create a profile with bio, portfolio and contact info and find information on creative colleagues.
  • Members can search the job board for new gigs.
  • Anyone can search local businesses and organizations.
