Call for Nominations for 2014-2015

Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild?  We’re looking for members who are full of great ideas about how to better serve our members and who would like to help make our organization grow and thrive!

Here are two ways you could contribute to the running of our guild:

  •  nominate yourself for a position on the Executive
  •  volunteer for one of our committees

 

Executive

All Executive positions are for a 1 year term, so we are seeking nominations for all positions.  (There is no limit to how many consecutive terms a member may serve.)

All applicants should be able to make the time commitment to attend the monthly guild meeting, a monthly Executive meeting, as well as time for the individual duties of each position.  If you have any questions about one of the positions, please feel free to contact any one of the current Executive members.

We have changed the titles of some of the Executive positions to better reflect the duties being performed by Executive members.

These are the Executive positions for 2014-2015:

  • Co-President
  • Co-President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Membership
  • Social Media
  • Workshops
  • Speakers

Terry Aske has decided not to submit her name for a position on the Executive for the coming year, so she will be acting as our Nominating Committee.

To apply for an Executive position, please send the following information to terry@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca before October 5, 2014.

Qualifications/Why you would be a good fit:

All nominations received by midnight October 5th, will be posted on the blog.  This will give all of our members plenty of time to consider who they want to vote for at the October 20 guild meeting.

At the October 20th meeting, we will also call for nominations from the floor, and we will hold elections for the 2014-2015 Executive positions.

 

Committees
Another way to contribute to your guild is to volunteer for one of our committees.  Committees meet as required and submit reports to the Executive.  Committee members are appointed by the Executive.

These are the committees for 2014-2015.  All will have committee chairs; some will have additional members.

  • Sew-ins
  • Swaps and challenges
  • Refreshments
  • Special Events (e.g. Maker Faire, Knit City, PNW meet-up)
  • Quilt Show
  • Retreat
  • Photography

If you’re interested in volunteering for one or more of the committees, please send an email to terry@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca before midnight October 18th.  Your information and area(s) of interest will be provided to the 2014-2015 Executive.

We encourage every member to consider submitting your name for an Executive or Committee position.  Also, please note that sitting on the Executive does not preclude you from being on a committee, and vice versa.  If you have the time and energy for two positions, we encourage you to submit your name for both.

 

Your 2013-2014 Executive:

Felicity, Holly, Heather, Niki, Amy, Michelle, Jo-Anne, Terry
