NEMAA Past Presidents

The early formation of NEMAA was made possible through the efforts of many forward-thinking artists and community members. From 1995-2002 many of the leaders of NEMAA acted as both coordinator for Art-A-Whirl and President of the organization.

In 2002, the role of NEMAA President and Board Chair became one of voluntary service, overseeing the Board of Directors and the organization’s activities and growth.

NEMAA is grateful to all who served in leadership positions and additional years of service as members of the Board of Directors.
