Structure of the Executive Committee:
It has been brought up at a few executive meetings that some executive positions are a little more labour intensive than others. It was suggested that perhaps a restructuring of duties may be in order. However, any change to the Executive can only be done at an AGM with proper notice. Rose proposed that a committee to study the structure of a Quilters Guild Executive should be formed to make recommendations that can be voted on at the May 2011 AGM. Gail ML volunteered to head that committee. She will be looking for a few more volunteers to help in this endeavour. If you are interested in being on the committee please see Gail M-L.
Just a reminder that there is only one month left for the big reveal of the London Challenge. These pieces will be collected and displayed as a welcoming gesture for those attending the CQA/ACC Quilt Ontario 2011 London event. The more we have the more impressive it will be!
May is the guild's AGM. At this meeting, we elect our new slate of Executive members. Being on the Executive is a rewarding experience, you get a chance to know the guild from the inside out. It is team work! No one carries the burden alone! Perks include being the first to sign up for workshops! Being part of the planning of events (All Sunbonnet Sue, all the time! yes! what?outvoted?better luck next time!) Camraderie! Tea Parties, once a month, and of course there is the secret handshake! (nudge, nudge, wink, wink!) If you would like to try a term on the executive contact Rose B.
Penny reported another 27 quilts to CAS! Way to go!!
