Nominating committee report: Lynn deB reported that the nominating committee still has not found someone willing to fill the president position. Ricki H is willing to serve as one of the vice presidents but she could really use a partner. This position can be filled by co-vice presidents. Nancy B and Ann K have agreed to be the secretary and treasurer for another year. Margaret E is willing to be the newsletter editor and Lynn H and Mary Jo N are willing to serve on the membership committee.
Deb R explained the responsibilities of the president’s job, which are to chair the meetings and write the monthly “Thrums” for the newsletter. Anyone interested should contact one of the nominating committee members. The Guild really does need to fill the position this year if at all possible.
