I’m pleased to announce that the ICG Board has just approved the application of Costume Guild of Lancaster (PA) as the 21st and newest chapter! The group is centered around Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Information about the new chapter will appear soon on the ICG website, and a representative of the chapter will be joining the ICG Board.

Crescentia Volz, the chapter organizer and guild president, worked with MACS in Madison Wisconsin  as Panels Coordinator for Costume-Con 34.  She reports that after moving to Pennsylvania recently, she discovered a thriving, costume-loving community and helped them form costume guild. They also decided that they would love to join the ICG as a new chapter, and studied the process in the Chapters and SIGs resource center on the ICG website before submitting their application in January.

Please join me in thanking Crescentia and welcoming Costume Guild of Lancaster to the ICG!

Philip Gust

ICG President
