January 2017 Meeting Recap

by Emily Doane
We had a great turnout for our January meeting (and even welcomed a new member!), and show and tell was pretty inspiring. We voted to pass the slate of officers for 2017, so the guild leadership remains the same. We encourage all members to start thinking about taking on leadership roles next year as a few of our officers plan to step down. We can always use fresh ideas and opinions! We also reviewed the proposed budget for 2017 and voted to pass it.
