Future Plans and Decisions

modern blocks by Christa of
On Tuesday, November 18, the Executive Committee of the Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild (CFMQG) met to discuss and set the direction for our chapter. In attendance were:

President: Karen E.
Vice Presidents: Debbie B. and Beth S.
Media Coordinator: Linda H.
Treasurers: Carla S. (absent: Susan S.)
  1. Bylaws were reviewed and modified. Changes to the bylaws, as compared to bylaws adopted in June 2013 (and later unadopted), reflect the current needs of the CFMQG, and included sections/articles required by the national Modern Quilt Guild. Bylaws are attached below for review, and will be voted upon at the December 8, 2014 CFMQG meeting. 
  2. Based on the number of responses to an interest sign-up list regarding joining our local chapter and national MQG, the Executive Committee recommends that steps be taken toward affiliating with the national MQG. We anticipate completing this process by the end of January, 2015. 
  3. After discussion, and consideration for chapter start-up costs, it was decided that annual dues will be $40. The $40 amount encompasses the total amount for both national and local memberships. Dues for 2015 will be accepted at December 8 and January 12 CFMQG meetings.

Since the November 18 Executive Committee meeting, we have learned of another advantage to joining the national MQG. By obtaining non-profit, 501(C)(3) status, we will have free access to a Belleview Public Library meeting room for our Saturday Sew-Ins. Details to come.

On Tuesday, January 6, at 10 a.m., at North Lake Presbyterian Church, we will present our donation quilt to the church. Women’s ministry moderator Kay Kennedy will be present to accept the quilt. Please plan to attend and help us express our thanks to the church for use of a monthly meeting room.
