The next meeting of the American Guitar Society will be held on Saturday, March 4th 2017, at 7:30 p.m. in Music 104, L.A. Valley College, 5800 Fulton Ave., Valley Glen, CA.

Angie Hougen is an enthusiastic member, having performed at meetings with a quartet, revived the AGS Guitar Orchestra, initiated the Bickford Competition, and served to promote activity by our membership, first as a Board member and then as Vice President.. As Greg Newton wrote, "Our dear Vahdah most certainly has a smile from ear to ear." Angie now finds it necessary to be more involved with the care of her mother, who lives in San Diego. She has resigned as VP, and we can only say "Thank You for all you've done. We look forward to your continuing participation whenever possible."

The Board of Directors nominated and elected Jordan Charnofsky to serve as Vice President. He has accepted. Thank you. We look forward to working with him to continue ASG’s activities He is a long-time member, performer, composer and LAVC faculty member, just the person we need.

If you haven't renewed your membership dues for 2017, this is a friendly reminder to do so. If you already paid, I thank you.

When you sign up to perform at a meeting, contact Michael Camp at (818) 793-8176 or email him to schedule your performances for the meeting no later than the Wednesday before the Saturday meeting as the programs will be run off the next day.
