Ankeny Area Quilters’ Guild Meeting Minutes for October 14, 2014
Connie Lovelady welcomed members and visitors to the October guild meeting. She introduced the 2014-2015 Board members.
The Board and membership responsibilities were reviewed:
1. Board members are to carry out the duties of their position, make decision on behalf of the guild members, be responsible with guild budget, act as the voice for the membership as well as ears to listen to the membership, and review and enforce the bylaws and guild policies.
2. Membership responsibilities are to attend meetings, support activities, provide support for committee work, and volunteering at events. Membership is to promote quilting education, share the quilting passion with other members, and voice any concerns to the board. Any member has the right to attend the board meeting but must tell a board member they will be coming. Members are encouraged to bring their concerns to the board but will not be present during any of the voting.
It was noted that the Board reviewed the bylaws and they would be available online for the membership’s review. Paper copies would be available to those members that do not have internet access. At the November meeting we will have a vote on the bylaws. Biggest change was dropping the Mary Conkel Award.
It was decided that a member could only hold one Board position at a time. There are still two positions open, communications elect and quilt show chair elect. The president elect is filled by Cathy Dimit.
Lin VandeBerg introduced our program guest, Judy Martin, the log cabin designer.
After the very interesting program, the Directors at Large had the drawings. They promoted the Bucket List, 5 unfinished projects you want to complete this year,
There are kits, coffee cozies and table toppers, available to make for the North Pole craft sale at our booth. If you want to attend the Saturday sew-ins, you must sign up so that the proper number of sewing stations is set up. There are five donation quilts that need to be finished by someone willing to do that.
Connie reminded us of the November donation of mittens, scarves, and gloves for the Ankeny schools.
Show and tell was announced and limited to one item in attempt to shorten the meeting. Then treats were served.
The next meeting will be Nov. 11 with Connie Sue Haidle. “Quick Prep Applique”, as the program and her workshop on Sat., Nov. 15th.
