THIS GROUP IS BEING CREATED TO COLLECTIVELY COME TOGETHER SO WE ARE UNITED AS ONE.
(especially where our regulations are made. We currently do NOT have a voice regarding our industry. Which means that a person or entity who knows NOTHING about tattooing has complete power over what is brought upon us.)
All dues collected will be put towards the cause ONLY.
The Dues are in place so that things can be paid for such as, a lobbyist, paperwork fees, meeting place rentals, printmaking, ads, etc. For example this website upkeep costs 19.99 a month, to be a state accredited non profit corporation was $50. So on and so on.
This is a non profit organization which is run by us, the Ct tattoo technician license holders.
Once we have a large number of members we will hold an election within the current members for officer positions. These positions do NOT hold any higher voting power than a non board member. EVERY VOTE COUNTS!
The board members will simply create a smaller group of tattooers to make sure things stay on track. For example, staying in contact with health departments, legislative authorities, website upkeep, social media awareness, emails and notifications, billing, etc. This is simply to make sure there are not "too many cooks in the kitchen" and so that operations move smoothly.
There will be 7 members of the board 5 of which will be open for positions, so that a few of us creators can smoothly pass the torch. All members will have the opportunity to nominate officers. There will be an election based on the nominees. Each officer will hold said position for no more than 2 years. For more information on the organizations by laws, please visit the file labeled "by-laws." These positions are NOT to be compensated in anyway, as to this is NOT a business, but a business league; a place where we as Professional tattoo technician license holders will COME TOGETHER TO MAKE A CHANGE.
Yearly dues are 50.00. You will receive notifications on upcoming events, elections, new regulation issues, meeting information and more. In addition to having a priceless reward of having a voice, we will also have a membership card which will give you discounts to local supply companies, print makers, contractors, stores, restaurants, etc.
