The Artist-Blacksmith's Association of North America (ABANA)
is dedicated to perpetuating the noble art of blacksmithing. A blacksmith is one who shapes and forges iron with hammer and anvil. ABANA encourages and facilitates the training of blacksmiths; disseminates information about sources of material and equipment; exposes the art of blacksmithing to the public; serves as a center of information about blacksmithing for the general public, architects, interior designers, and other interested parties.

Affiliate Email List Servers

Dear Affiliate Liaison and Affiliate Newsletter Editors,

We now have e-mail lists for Affiliate Liaisons and Newsletter Editors to join. This list is just for the Affiliate Liaison Representatives. Newsletter editors skip down the page a bit. Anyone else should join participate in the forums on abana.com, TheForge, Blacksmiths or TheAnvil. The idea is to make it as easy as possible for two way communications to take place.

Affiliate Liaison List

This list should be considered a tool to facilitate communication between the Affiliates and the ABANA Board and between the Affiliates themselves. Please take advantage of this powerful tool to help your group and ABANA. It's easy to join and I don't expect that it will overwhelm your in-box. You can post photos, share files, databases, add a link to your group's web site or on-line newsletter, list your events on the group calendar, all sorts of cool stuff. Please give it a try.

If you would like more information about the Affiliate Liaison Program, click the link for A Program To Enhance ABANA-Affiliate Communication on the Affiliate Downloads page. Please note that some of the files below are a bit dated -- not so much in terms of content but that the contact information is old. Please contact the individuals on the current Board or Central Office pages.

Affiliate Newletter Editor List

The Newsletter Editors have their own group. As with the Liaisons group you have to apply to join. Dave Mudge of LAMA is the moderator of this group. We thank him for his service in maintaining this facility.
