NIADA Patron members have always been a vital part of the organization, actively supporting and promoting NIADA in many ways. Each Patron contributes in his or her own fashion, whether it be contribution of a particular expertise, financial resources or volunteer hours.
Opportunities for Patron participation include: serving on NIADA committees and the board; volunteering for assignments that expedite the organization’s operations; purchasing NIADA dolls; educating collectors and the general public about art dolls; promoting NIADA artists at shows and galleries; selling NIADA work and representing NIADA in business ventures. Patrons are instrumental in organizing and facilitating the annual conference and other events. The NIADA Artists are deeply indebted to the patrons who have supported them over the years.
