Fireweed Fiber Guild

BOD meeting

Oct 19, 2019

Meeting was called to order at 10:10 with 4 board members present. Linda, Lisa, Monti and Kathy

Old Business:

It was concluded that this year’s FiberFest was a success.

Monti gave treasurer’s report: to date, $4245.07 with insurance to be paid. She suggested that next year there should be better accounting on money’s collected as to what category funds should be listed. Such as: memberships, bags, raffle

It was brought up that there was a problem with dogs around the animal pens, and we will need better signage requiring dogs to be on leashes.

Board was agreed that the floor arrangement/booth assignment worked well. It was brought up that there might be better descriptions of job assignments for the FiberFest; and someone needs to be sure the room isn’t so cold.

There was a glitch in the communications with some food vendors, and it was noted that the signing up of these vendors should be cleared with the person heading that task.

Guild Tote Bags: Some bags went missing at the festival, probably due to it wasn’t made clear there was a Guild tote bags charge. Need better signage and control in the future. There are only 15 bags left in inventory from the original order of 53. We are still missing monies from an outside sale.

New Business:

Terms for Board members was discussed, and noted that term is for 2 years, running from January to January, with elections held at October/November meetings. Call for nominations will begin during the summer of 2020.

A motion was made and seconded to have a printed list of members, with emails, so our membership list can be purged of duplicates and individuals who no longer wish to receive the newsletter. An email will be sent to people on list “if you no longer want to receive our emails, please reply”.

A motion was made and seconded to send out hard copies to members who have no access to computers and/or internet.

Meeting was adjourned at 11:11am

 

Respectfully submitted,

Kathy Morey

BOD Secretary
