December 2011 Message from the Guildmaster

Filed under Message from the Guildmaster

Our first fall executive and committee chair meeting is now part of the Guild’s history.  It was extremely productive and hopefully has paved the way for future meetings of this type.  Numerous items were on the table, including a thorough review of the Guild’s by-laws.  The special committee that was appointed to conduct the review has completed the job, and the item is now dissolved.  I would like to thank each committee member for their time and input.

A particular concern of the membership was the interest of HCH Sanctioned Regional Meetings.  Roland Cadle, Consultant to the Executive Committee and Educational Committee chair, presented a motion that the HCH sanction regional meetings.  The motion was seconded by Meetings Chair, Dick Toone.  After a thorough debate, it was put up for vote, which resulted in a unanimous decision against the motion for regional meetings.

Don’t forget to set your plans in motion for our Annual Meeting, March 2nd and 3rd, 2012 at the AHEC Carlisle, Pennsylvania, this promises to be our best ever.  My January message will have more details.  Keep working on your horn strap/drinking vessel contest entries.  The time has been extended right up to the meeting date.

The Christmas season is upon us, to all I wish a,  “Merry Christmas!”

Executive Committee at Carlisle, PA.

    Will the minutes of the executive committee meeting be published for everyone to read the details of the meeting?

    My hat is off to the executive committee. The explanation given by the guildmaster was very clear and concise. It shows that a lot of thought and discussion went into the decision made by the committee.

    I would like to recommend that the minutes from the committee meetings and executive board be published on the website. This would help to keep our full membership informed as to the workings of the guild. Many members are unable to attend the meetings at Dixon’s or the annual March meeting. This is the only way they can be informed. By publishing them on the web and archiving them; there is a permanent record for every one to see and it allows more room in The Horn Book for the excellent articles that are being published. I can’t wait for the next issue to learn more the meeting in Carlisle, PA. If there is a concern about publishing them, I am sure our webmaster could create a members only section like on many other websites.

    Once again, thanks for the explanation. Communication is the key to the success of any organization especially one run by volunteers.

    Respectfully yours,

    Craig Jarrett
