The Results Are In!

Based on survey results, with 21 respondents interested in structuring our chapter, the Advisory Team of Karen, Beth, Debbie, Mary, and Linda met to determine next steps toward formalizing our Central Florida MQG chapter.

We couldn't be happier!

We're delighted to share with you the names of executive board and standing committee members who will be leading us from now through December, 2015:

President - Karen E.
First and Second Vice Presidents - Debbie B. and Beth S.
Co-Treasurers - Carla S. and Susan S.
Media Coordinator - Linda H.

Programs (led by VPs) - Laura N. and Carol P.
Membership - Brenda H. and Frances W.
Sew-Ins and Retreats - Toni L. And Linda T.
Swaps and Challenges - Mel T. and Kelly W.

As you've likely noted, the Advisory Team has been intentional about ensuring that "many hands make light work." We're grateful that so many of you stepped up to keep us moving forward! 

What's Next?
The new Executive Committee will meet by November 21 to review, and if necessary, make changes to previously adopted/unadopted by-laws. By-laws will be presented to CFMQG attendees by the December 8 meeting. 

Steps will also be taken toward obtaining a federal EIN, opening a bank account, and determining dues... all meant to move us toward joining the national MQG by early 2015. 

Anticipating accepting official members, we're now accepting the names of those of you who are interested in joining our chapter, and becoming affiliated with The Modern Quilt Guild.

Karen E. is keeping this sign up list. Please send her an email, or let us know at this e-dress to be added to the list. Thank you!

The above information will be reviewed and discussed at our Monday, November 10 meeting. Bring your hand sewing supplies as together we sew down the binding on our donation quilt.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. at North Lake Presbyterian Church, Lady Lake, Florida.
