Coming up in April we have our Spring Meeting “Travel AZ -Destination Copper Country”! Saturday April 8th, in Globe (see pages 22-23). We have included some information on places to stay: Hotels, Inns, Bed and Breakfasts, or take your RV.
We had a great Spring Chapter Meeting, the Power Point is available with the Meeting Minutes. An exciting contest was presented by our Membership Director, JoAnn Rice. The contest will have 2 groups and 2 gift baskets worth over $500.00 each for the winners in each respective group. The Goal of the Contest is to encourage our AQG Membership to use the Online Renewal process which is available on our Website to renew your 2017-2018 Membership. By using the Online Renewal, the volume of paperwork that AQG receives during renewal season will be cut down dramatically. There is no extra cost to our Members to renew Online. For more information, see page 26 of the newsletter for a summary of how the contest will work.
We are still looking for candidates for 2017-2018 Executive Board Positions of President Elect, Treasurer, and Secretary. The time I have spent with the AQG Board has opened a whole new perspective for me about AQG and how meaningful AQG is to so many people. I also learned so much more than I expected, not only from the Chapters, but also the wonderful Quilters that make up AQG. The experience of being a part of this wonderful organization has been priceless. If you would like to be a part of something that reflects what you love and love doing, be a part of the AQG Board. Let us know what you would like to be involved in by filling out the AQG Nomination Form and sending it in. Arizona Quilters Guild needs your help! We need volunteers to fill the Executive Board Positions, and the open Directors Positions: Communications, Promotional Sales, Traveling Teachers, Special Projects, and Quilt Show. If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this wonderful Guild (click here) to let us know!
Together there is nothing we cannot achieve!
