December 2011 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!”
