Everyone involved in Cincinnati Book Arts Society is a volunteer. We have no paid employees. CBAS depends entirely on our members and friends to:

  • serve as board members and committee chairs, 
  • assist with preparing materials for workshops and programs, 
  • be on hand at in-person activities to make sure things run smoothly, 
  • promote CBAS events on social media, 
  • help plan in-person and online programs,
  • host visiting artists and workshop presenters,
  • represent CBAS at community events,
  • handle sales of items donated to CBAS at Essex Art Walks,
  • share technical expertise (set up and filming of hybrid Study Group sessions, website maintenance, video editing, etc.)
  • take care of the CBAS member library 
  • help create, edit and update brochures, forms and promotional materials,
  • help keep the studio clean and well-stocked, and
  • be an ambassador for CBAS in the real and virtual worlds.


Whether you’re outgoing or a bit introverted, a beginning bookmaker or a studio artist, comfortable with technology or just figuring it out, CBAS has a place for you.

How can you help?  Please email [email protected] and let’s talk about your place in this welcoming and supportive group.
