President’s Message – July 2022

| 0

Welcome to Summer, it is good to finally experience some summer-like temperatures. I hope that this provides inspiration for outdoor functional glass art or outdoor-inspired art pieces.

It is hard to believe that it has been six months since I started as President of the Pacific Northwest Glass Guild, the time has gone by too quickly. The one thing that I realized very quickly was that we have a GREAT group of volunteers that keep the Guild moving forward and provide the membership benefits that you have grown accustomed to. We look forward to continuing to provide meaningful and informative General Meeting topics along with events like Play Days and social events. These events cannot take place without help from the membership. We need immediate volunteers to plan the summer and fall events so please consider volunteering to help the Guild. Additionally, there is a short term need for a Nominating Team leader. This team leader will help to recruit volunteers for any open Board level positions. Finally, we continue to have an urgent need for a website operations support volunteer so check out the posting on Idealist for more details

If you are interested in volunteering for any of our open committee teams or specific needs outlined above, please drop me a note at with your feedback.
