Welcome to the Colour Research Society of Canada's new online meeting place.

If you are already a member or would like to be one, and are in the Toronto area, please join us at our
Annual Meeting Wednesday evening June 6, 6:30 pm at OCAD University auditorium (Rm 190, 100 McCaul).

If you would like to become a member and/or stand for election as a Board Member, and are somewhere else in Canada, please send an email to doreen.balabanoff@gmail.com, and I will send you further instructions about joining. If  self-nominating, please provide a short statement about yourself to help voters make a choice.

The annual dues are $25 for the year.
These are payable in cash at the door or by cheque or money order sent to:
DGriffin, Treasurer CRSC
c/o Faculty of Art
OCAD University
100 McCaul Street
Toronto ON M5T 1W1

If sending by mail, please be sure to include contact info so we can be in touch with you by email and/or phone.(We will be setting up an online membership payment tool shortly).

The modest dues will help us with operating costs such as web development, translation, equipment rental, business number fees, and all of the general costs of getting an organization up and running.

Student members over 18 years old are welcome - fees are $15 for students.

The meeting will start at 6:30 pm with business matters including reports from the Board members on the past year's activities and future plans.

Elections will follow (Secretary position, 2 members at large)

We will have several short presentations by members on their colour-related work. There are still openings if you wish to present - 20 slides 20 seconds each is the (strict) format.

AND THE MEETING WILL END WITH A  ' SPECTRAL SMORGASBORD' - Attendees are invited  to bring a plate of food of one colour to share - a 'spectral smorgasboard'

Please let me know if you are interested in presenting, and if you are in another part of Canada, we would be happy to have you join us by taped or live online presentation - so do communicate with me about this.

Please spread the word to colleagues with a passion for colour!
