Executive Board Nominations!

Ok, y’all! The time has come to finally put together our first-ever Executive Board. Vanessa started this guild way back in 2010 and we have never had any official officers. We’ve kept it laid back and casual. Now, we are taking this guild to the next level as we work to formalize our membership with the Modern Quilt Guild.
First things first. We need to collect nominations for the Executive Board.
Here is the info:
• You do NOT have to nominate someone for each position. 
• You can nominate yourself.
