Call for Nominations for 2015-2016

Voting-002

It’s that time of year again.  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!

Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild?  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.  *Note that we have recently experimented with having some executive meetings held online to save time for everyone so we will likely continue with occasional virtual executive meetings in 2015/16.

These are the Executive positions for 2015-2016:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Membership
  • Social Media
  • Workshops
  • Speakers

Terry Aske, Niki Storr and Arita Rai will be acting as our Nominating Committee.  To apply for an Executive position, please send the following information to nominations@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca before September 30, 2015.

Qualifications/Why you would be a good fit:

All nominations received by midnight September 30 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 26 guild meeting.  At the October 26th meeting, we will also call for nominations from the floor, and we will hold elections for the 2015-2016 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 2015-2016.  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 nominations@vancouvermodernquiltguild.ca before midnight September 30.  Your information and area(s) of interest will be provided to the 2015-2016 Executive.

We encourage every member to consider submitting your name for an Executive or Committee position.  It’s a great way to meet people and have an influence on the direction of the VMQG.  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 2014-2015 Executive:

Felicity, Holly, Amy, Michelle, Stacey M, Stacey D, Rebecca, Kristen
