Presenter /Vendor Registration Form & Barter Agreement
Presenters: If you could send me a brief description and Bio/Business logo that I can post on the webpage that would be great. Workshop/Program descriptions will be posted to the webpage for class registration. If we have discussed a payment arrangement that is different than the straight Barter Options (See Below) please write that out as well. (Ie if it is an on-going program that folks will need to pay a set fee for the duration of the class or if there is a materials fee).
Based on the past years’ experience/ conversations regarding the development of the CSArt program, there is a slight re-structuring in the barter model to better suit the needs of the presenters and the CSArt program. I welcome any feedback on how this new structure would work for you. (I am starting to plan next years’ class schedule- let me know if you are interested in presenting September-May)
The current model is based on presenters offering a two- hour workshop. (Event workshops are between1-2 hours depending on instructor preference.) The monetary value that has been placed on this is $100.00. There are three different options for bartering compensation. Presenters can choose which option would best suit them in exchange for presenting a workshop.
- Membership to the CSA. Individual membership is $100.00 (Family membership is 150.00)
Membership entitles members to discounted classes, (2 hour workshops are $15.00 instead of $25.00- materials fees may still apply depending on the class.) Members receive discounts at events, such as the Funk N Pumpkin. Members also get priority pre- registration for upcoming classes and events. CSArt members are eligible for discounts on Agriculture CSA shares/specials.
2. Promotion of your business/craft/trade for a year in a quarterly newsletter, on the CSA/A webpage and through social media. This can include updates on what you are doing, i.e. Farmers markets, classes, PYO / farm specials, etc. The webpage can also include a link to your own site where folks can contact you directly. (You will be responsible to get me info you want promoted- upcoming events, product/price list, promos etc.)
3 . Reserved vending space at Common Vision (1 event - Either Spring or Fall)
Vend your wares/ promote your work and network with a like- minded community. Waive the Vending Commission Fee.
- If applicable- the ability to sell product/craft through other Common Vision connections for 1 year ( i.e.; In the studio, off the web page, at markets/ venues I attend, etc. )
Vendors: We can fit about 6-8 craft vendors and 1-2 food vendors. I would like to know what sort of space (size) would be ideal for you- do you have a tent/ez up, do you have or need tables, is power necessary (it is limited). A brief description/bio/pics would also be great so I can include that on the webpage for folks to view when checking out info about the event.
I am asking a 20% commission on sales from vendors in lieu of a set vendor fee- I feel that is a more appropriate arrangement based on my own vending experience!
