Hello JMQG members and blog visitors! Just a quick reminder that we will be having our August meeting this coming Saturday, 8/22, at the South Mandarin library at 10:30. Please remember our Jacksonville Sunrise BOM and our Belly Button FMQ challenge. Also Round Robin participants, don’t forget to bring in the start of your quilt. Please remember that if you won’t be able to make it to the meeting, it’s your responsibility to coordinate to get your quilt center to the meeting. Feel free to e-mail us at jaxmqg at gmail dot com if you need to coordinate the dropping off of your RR center.
Ok, now this is important. We are so close to the end of year (where did it go anyway?) and we must form a nomination committee at the August meeting to collect names of those interested to run for one of the four offices for JMQG (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) and to oversee the elections that will be held in November. Here’s the deal, any member in good standing can run for any office at JMQG (no negative campaigning OK ?:):)). If you are interested in running for office, you cannot serve on the nomination committee. Current officers also cannot serve on the nomination committee. Everybody else who is NOT interested in running for office, please volunteer for the nomination committee, we need three people to do this. More details on nomination committee tasks will be given during the meeting, but meanwhile, if you are interested in serving on the nomination committee but won’t be attending the August meeting, please shoot us an e-mail. Those interested to run for office will have until sometime in November (before the meeting and to be determined by the nomination committee) to declare their interest. Elections will be held in November for officers to serve from January 2016 until December of 2017.
See you all on Saturday! We have the room until 4 PM if you want to sit and sew after the meeting.
