Levels of Membership
If you’re an artist who is interested in participating in juried shows and honing your skills, then perhaps you’re ready to apply to become an Active Member. Active membership in the FCA brings with it notification of and the opportunity to participate in: juried shows in Vancouver and various Chapters, workshops, demonstrations and critiques, as well as show receptions and gallery openings. In addition to receiving ongoing information, Calls for Submission and Art Avenue Magazine, Active Members also have the option to have their website link displayed on Federation websites (both Vancouver and the local chapter). Perhaps, most important, it provides an artist with the opportunity to share ideas, learn and grow and to advance to new levels. You must be a Supporting Member to apply for Active Membership.
If you wish to apply for active status, contact either the Treasurer or President to start the process. You may apply through Vancouver by sending images of your work or designating specific works on your website. You may also have your work adjudicated by local members who have SFCA or AFCA memberships.

Active Member status does NOT confer the use of any designation initials (AFCA or SFCA).
The use of initials AFCA or SFCA after an artist’s name indicates that they have attained Associate Signature Membership or Senior Signature Status.
