Due to the tragic events that took place on September 11, the board of directors of the Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorators (SGCD) voted to postpone the 2001 DECO show and seminar, which had been scheduled to take place this September at the Hyatt Crystal City in Arlington, Va. The DECO show will now take place on February 23-26, 2002, with the First Step Seminar scheduled for February 23. Exhibits and other seminar sessions will be held on February 24¿26. SGCD will continue to issue full refunds for seminar payments to those who cannot attend the spring show. The office will also credit payments to cover registration fees in the spring.
The board is making final preparations for holding all future DECO shows in spring with DECO 2003 planned for March/April in Nashville and DECO 2004 in Cincinnati in April. Fall is the busiest time of the year for many members, including custom decorators, and this change will make it easier for many of the society's members to attend future events.
