Purpose of Regional Critique Groups (RCGs)

  • To get more members active at the local level at little expense while providing an educational activity that benefits our members and WSO.
  • To create autonomous groups who can set up specific demonstrations and workshops appropriate in length and subject matter to the specific requests of its members using WSO instructors at reasonable rates.
  • To form an identifiable group to exhibit their work at the conventions and other WSO exhibitions
