2016 Annual Meeting and Sew Day – Join Us!

When: December 3, 2016, 1-4 p.m.
Where: Boise Public Library, 715 S Capitol Blvd, Boise, ID (Marion Bingham Room on 3rd floor)

Yes, it is that time of year again! Since we are a non-profit we are required to hold an annual meeting to take care of a few quick – but important – items of business. We promise to make the business part go quick! Below is an outline of the meeting as well as some other announcements.

A few changes for your calendar:
We are combining our November and December meetings. Instead of meeting November 26 and December 24, we will meet December 3. Our annual after-holiday party will be January 28 at our regularly scheduled sew day.

Annual swap:
At our January after-holiday party we will exchange mini-quilts. We emailed members a form to fill out so swap partners can learn a bit more about each other’s likes and dislikes. The last day to complete this form is 11/16/16, and we will let you know who your swap partner is by 11/18/16.

    • A few rules about the vote:

      • To be qualified as an elected officer, a member must be in good standing, and have been active in the Guild for at least one year (with exception for the founding officers).
      • Renewing and new members are allowed to vote.
      • A member does not have to be present to be on the ballot, but you must be at the meeting to vote.
      • See Position Descriptions of Board Members for more information.
