Participating in CBBAG
The participation of members is essential to the operation of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild. CBBAG values its members who give their time, creativity, and financial support to achieve CBBAG’s mission. CBBAG encourages individual integrity, commitment, reliability, initiative, and cooperation. Members are expected to meet their commitment to participate in and/or provide support for specific programmes or activities.
