The bylaws for Gainesville Modern Quilters are now posted to the website here. If you plan to become a dues paying member of the guild, please read the bylaws and then add a comment to this post indicating if you approve of the bylaws as they are written and confirming that you would like to become a member. We will have an opportunity to revise the bylaws each year, so we can adjust as we grow and learn what works for us as a guild.
For this first year, we are collecting dues later in the year than outlined in the bylaws. Our goal is to complete all the steps for becoming a member of the national guild before June 1. In order to accomplish this, we will begin collecting dues at the next meeting, which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 7. We will announce the amount prior to the meeting.
We are making great progress toward becoming a local chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild and are really excited to take the next big step of making our membership official!
