Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is composed of nine members, elected by the membership to serve a three-year term. The Nominating Committee recommends a slate of six members who have experience with the programs and committees of the Guild for the three positions open each year. Board members may serve two consecutive terms.

The Board of Trustees meets four times each year at which time the Board receives committee reports, acts on Guild policy, approves budgets, reviews programming, plans for the Guild’s future and offers guidance, support and counsel to the Executive Director.

Maker Statement:

I moved to Western North Carolina because of the handcraft heritage. That decision has served me well, as I have had an opportunity to experience and learn techniques both historical and significant. I am drawn to use fiber techniques in a nontraditional way. I break them into parts, redesign the parts; then build them back together using my own aesthetic and design motivation. Whether for a functional work or an abstract, I strive for the second glance...the one cast back over the shoulder, calling the view back, as he/she discovers a new and different energy of a piece.
