Signature Membership

How to Achieve Signature Membership

PSNM members may achieve Signature Membership upon accumulating 12 points, as follows:

  • 3 points for having one or more paintings accepted into the PSNM National Exhibition,
    plus the following points for each award received:
    • 5 points for first place
    • 4 points for second place
    • 3 points for third place
    • 2 points for fourth place, and
    • 1 point for any other award
    Points must be accrued within the previous eight consecutive years.

Artists are responsible for contacting the current Signature Membership Committee Chair when 12 points have been accrued, provided they were members of PSNM at the time their paintings were entered into the show. They must send copies of the relevant National Show catalog and/or award sheet inserts or other proof of eligibility. Artists who become eligible as a result of being accepted into the current show should provide all pertinent material to the Signature Membership Committee Chair as soon as possible.

Contact Nance McManus, the PSNM Signature Membership chair, at

More details regarding Signature Membership and Distinguished PSNM Pastelist can be found on pages 5 and 6 in PSNM Policies & Procedures.
