Our 2021 “Live-Streamed” Membership Meeting

By Roberto Alaniz

We are planning our first ever “online” membership meeting as part of Virtual Festival 2, as membership meetings have been an important part of our annual in-person festivals.

The meeting will be live-streamed at 5:30 PM Eastern on Saturday, October 9 on the HSGA YouTube and Facebook channels. If you are already viewing the Virtual Festival near the projected start time, just stay tuned and the meeting will begin automatically. Otherwise, click on either the YouTube or Facebook festival links at the hsga.org website to enter the meeting. To get there click on “Festivals” in the main menu and select “Second Virtual Steel Guitar Festival” from the drop-down menu.

During the meeting, members can text questions or comments to (510) 449-3936 or email them to hsga@hsga.org, or via the “comment” section of YouTube and Facebook. We will make every effort to respond during the meeting.
