Absolutely.  Simply log in, and then click "Manage Profile” on the right-hand side of the screen.  All of your membership settings are on that page.  Most settings will be found in "Edit Bio” and "Preferences”.

I want to perform a recital/give a lecture at the next convention. How can I be considered?

Convention artists and lecturers are selected by a committee. Artists are selected in or around January of each year for the following year's convention (in January of 2015, we will select artists for the 2016 convention. Lecturers are chosen in August of each year for the following year's convention. GFA places a call for concert and lecture proposals on the web site approximately two months before the committee will meet. There will be announcements made on the web site and on Facebook when the call is posted. Instructions will be provided for submitting your proposals. GFA does not generally accept other unsolicited proposals.
