Governance Comittee

SIBs is everyone, we are just the Governance Committee. Our purpose is to help the organization reach its full potential. This may sound simple, but it’s quite complex. We meet every other week to discuss the current projects SIBs is working on and develop plans for the future. Everything we do is about building a supportive, inclusive, and healthy community of people who love blacksmithing. Click our pictures to read more about each of us, if you want.

Thanks! 

If you are interested in being part of doing the work, please get in touch by emailing Inclusiveblacksmiths@gmail.com
