Training Day in the Guild Office

On Monday volunteer stalwarts and newcomers alike were treated to an in-depth expose of the inner workings of the Guild Office.
Led by the very organised and patient Office Manager, Jane Gibson, the gathered quilters learnt or were reminded of the responsibilities and procedures involved, that if followed correctly, ensure this large organisation functions without hiccup.

the most recent Friday Showcase presenter.

This training day was extremely valuable in light of the fact that the next few weeks will be particularly busy in the office.
Membership renewals are due soon, there are still many queries to field regarding the July Sydney Quilt Show, The Template is to be posted, and Raffle ticket monies will be arriving.

All members are reminded that the office duties administered by the enthusiastic volunteers under Jane's charge, are made all the easier to manage when members have read Flyers, The Template  and forms and documents, carefully, and proof read all personal details on returning forms and cheques. 

The training session wasn't all "heads down". A most welcome and tasty luncheon arrived for the participants, accompanied by the mirth and friendship that eventuates when quilting volunteers are gathered!
Please contact Jane should you be able to offer your time as a volunteer. She is more than happy to give individual help to anyone who missed out on attending Monday's session.
