Guild Night!

Tonight is Guild. I am the Vice President. This came about because I volunteered. In other words, I am in charge of planning all of the programs. I am an organizer and I was a Girl Scout Leader for 13 years. There are many similarities, but the hardest part of the programming is getting prospective speakers to call you back. Even if it was their idea to do a program! We all leave busy lives, but how hard is it to pick up a phone.. or better yet email me? Lord knows I'm always on the computer!
I need to get some back up plans in case someone cancels at the last minute. Our guild has over 100 members, and you know how hard it is to please everyone. That's why during my reign as Vice President... there will be lots of Art Quilt Programs... very few.. if any Civil War quilt related programs... and I can assure you there will be NO programs concerning "Underground Railroad quilts". The way I look at it, if I am doing the work, I am getting speakers that will interest me.. if someone else wants something different, they can volunteer next time. Okay.. I did make up a questionnaire, and got everyone's opinion about what they would like concerning programs. I was actually surprised how many WANTED more Art Quilt Techniques, and embellishment techniques.. this will be fun...

I agree---book the speakers you want! I was the program chair many moons ago and I did that too. Everyone loved the programs in spite of themselves!
