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 use the slow medium of tapestry weaving because I love the surface of flat woven tapestry, the intensity of color as interpreted in yarn, and the significance of each movement of the weaver's hands to the finished work. My tapestries are based upon ideas and images that are meaningful to me; the glorious natural world of north Georgia and western North Carolina provides many of those.
