  • March 22, 2016 10:52 AM EDT

    Anyone else having trouble getting their opas card. I paid for mine beginning of feb and still dont have it. 

    I wrote and enquired two weeks ago and got no response.

    Thanks for the reminder, no I did not get my card either, but I re-joined only about 2 months ago. Hope to see you again at one of the opas events..Sheila

    Hi Jennifer,

    At the moment, I am trying to handle most of the portfolios by myself. I only have Maria handling the Treasurer role. Plus I am in the middle of moving to Peterborough. So things have slipped a little.

    I haven't sent out any opas cards since November. I hope to catch up on that in a week or two.

    If any members are interested in helping run opas, please contact me direc tly. I can use the help.

    I still havent received anything in the mail and now the art stores wont give me any discounts as they say that the card is expired. Sheila, did you get yours?

    Keith, were they mailed? can you email a temporary card?

    Hi Jennifer, I think Keith is busy with moving house. Do you have a card from any other group? Sometimes the stores accept the AGO membership or really any art membership cards.

    I think Keith needs back up and needs members taking over some of the 'running' jobs of the group.

    See you painting outside soon!

    Curries at Kennedy and Steeles gave me the discount on Thursday without the card.... she said anyone who knows a group that small and obscure is obviously a member of it,... hahaha

    I was unable to load the opas site for the past few days, so I am rather late in replying. I am trying to sort out the membership list. Once I have it sorted, I will be issuing new cards to all members who have paid-up in the past six months. I hope to have this accomplished by the end of this week.

    Really sorry for the delay, however, I am still moving and I'm doing this part of opas on my own.

    I am still trying to get caught up. No member has volunteered to help me. I am teaching art tonight so I won't have a chance to do any cards until tomorrow. I hope to have this all cleared up by the end of the week.
