The SAGA Board of Directors welcomes contact from members. The addresses, phone numbers and email addresses for Board members and committee chairs appear in each issue of SAGANews, available here for members. In addition, anyone can phone 817 350 4883  and a message will be forwarded promptly to the appropriate Board member or chair.

The Board's SAGA email addresses appear below. They are non-clickable jpgs, which you will need to write down and then type into your email program. Making the email addresses pictures instead of live email links has significantly reduced the spam that board members receive, since automated programs that troll the web don't recognize the pictures as email addresses. The Board understands this is a small inconvenience for members, but hope all understand the volume of spam was becoming a huge inconvenience for board members.

We look forward to hearing from you.
