For those who were not able to attend last Saturday's meeting: As we approach the rollover of the fiscal year this April, I wanted to let you know that I am stepping down as the president. I am very grateful to have had this opportunity to lead within the guild and of course plan to continue my participation therein.
Rebecca, Alice, and I have agreed that we would like to know who might be interested in joining the officer team instead of arbitrarily announcing the "open" positions. As a board member/officer - you have the opportunity to assist with swaps/exchanges, meeting programming, scheduling, retreat planning, communication tasks, member outreach, funds management, etc.
No special qualifications are required to join the board - we simply ask that you commit to attending the guild meetings as often as possible, attend officer meetings (generally held 2-4 times a year), and fulfill your duties for 12-18 months.
The timing of and full reorganization of the board will depend on the response to this announcement - please contact us at email@example.com ASAP if you are interested in becoming a BMQG officer.
Also don't forget that our January sew-in will be held on Monday, January 27th. Please RSVP directly to Lia, lia.odonnell at gmail.com if you plan to attend.
