International Society of Glass Beadmakers  (ISGB)

Membership in ISGB is open to all. Current members include glass beadmakers working in a variety of media; collectors; historians; designers; glass artists; and art educators.  The group is governed by an elected Board of Directors and an appointed Advisory Board. ISGB is funded solely through membership dues, fundraising events, and donations.  100% of membership dues are used to support our organization. 

While you can be a member of The Southern Flames without being a member of the ISGB, you cannot serve on the Southern Flames Board or vote for board members unless you are also a member of the ISGB.

Gerry White currently serves as the Southeast Regional Director for the ISGB.
