They give their energy and time to pro- mote and protect the best interests of the CDG member- ship. So let's honor them and acknowledge their efforts to promote the art of costume design. President Emeritus Salvador Perez opened the month- ly Guild meeting on October 8, 2022, and presented the gavel to incoming President Terry Gordon who conduct- ed the month's agenda.
