January 2020 Meeting Recap

We met for our monthly meeting on Sunday, January 5th. This was our annual meeting at which we voted on any bylaws changes and voted on guild leadership for 2020.
All changes to bylaws were voted on and accepted. The current bylaws are available to view on the website.
The following new leadership was voted into office for 2020:
President - Nikki
VP of Programs - Jeanne
VP of Membership - Missy
Treasurer - B
Social Media - Courtney

Thank you so much to Amanda, Sandy, and Zsofia, who were part of leadership for 2019!

The Quiltcon 2020 charity quilt is being bound and labeled by Zsofia and Julie, and then we will send it off to the show!

The current quarterly challenge is to create a quilt derived from a board game. These quilts are due at the March 7th sew day meeting! To be entered in the yearly raffle the quilt must be finished, including binding. Use the hashtag #pghmqggamechallenge on social media!

Financial Report:
The guild had net earnings of $1053.46 for 2019!
Dues to MQG are paid for 2020.

We discussed the programs survey that was sent out last fall, and we discussed possible 2020 programs. As always, send any suggestions to Jeanne at her programs email!
