CPS Board Meetings

CPS Board of Directors meetings are held generally on the second Saturday of the odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September, November) from 10:00 AM to Noon at Southington Community Arts Center, 93 Main St, Southington, CT 06489.  Currently the meetings are held by Zoom software at those times. All meetings are open to CPS members, who are encouraged to come and participate. If you are interested in an invitation to the meeting, contact us.
Always check for announcements on the website, because there is an occasional change of date or location for the meetings.

Board Vacancies

CPS occasionally needs volunteers to fill key Board positions. At present, our Secretary has retired from the post so we are looking for someone with those skills and interests.

Advance Planning

Here are dates and locations for upcoming CPS shows and workshops – these may change as the schedule evolves, so please check the website for announcements as dates get closer.
