The Society of Typographic Aficionados (SOTA) is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, study, and support of type, its history and development, its use in the world of print and digital imagery, its designers, and its admirers.
The Society of Typographic Aficionados exists for the affordable education of its members and participants; to further the development of type, typographical information and typography; and to appreciate on multiple levels the attributes of type, typography, design, the book arts, and calligraphy.
Furthermore, SOTA is committed to sponsoring relevant topics in pursuit of these goals through an annual conference (TypeCon), held in a different host city each year.
Members have the opportunity to help shape the direction of the organization. Volunteerism is essential to the continued growth and usefulness of organization. Members are encouraged to propose venues, programming, and support for future conferences and other events. We welcome ideas for public awareness campaigns, fundraising activities, and broadening cultural diversity. There is much work to be done, and we hope you will volunteer your time and talents.
