Announcing new PPSCC Vice President
PPSCC welcomes Jody Shyllberg as our new Vice President as of January 1 this year. Our exiting Vice President, Rachel Avenia, served our organization with a great deal of dedication and was instrumental in updating our working process. Because of the kind of energy that Rachel gives to everything she is involved in she felt she had to resign her position as Vice President so that she could devote herself to her career and her family. We want to thank her for everything she did for our organization.
This past year Jody stepped up to chair our first online member show and did a wonderful job of researching the process and handling its implementation. We know that Jody will be a great asset to us and look forward to a rewarding collaboration with her.

Our New Logo
PPSCC is 20!!! And, we are just delighted with our new logo. PPSCC has members from 30 states, and many from all over the commonwealth of Massachusetts and surrounding New England states.. The society was founded on Cape Cod, and it is home base for our board, thats why we felt it was important to stick with our roots and incorporate the shape of Cape Cod into our new logo.
There are many ways you can become more involved with PPSCC and meet some of our 250 members! You can volunteer to help with our Annual shows: our national For Pastels Only and our Member Show, or work on a specific project.
Whether you have a few hours to donate for a specific task or would like to be a part of our Board of Directors, we would love to hear from you! We are currently looking for someone who would like to become involved with PPSCC Marketing and Public Relations.
