Virtual Guild Meeting

Virtual Guild Meeting January 21, 2021

Posted on

Hello everyone!

Our virtual guild meeting is scheduled for 1/21/2021.  The link to join the Zoom meeting was sent via e-mail.  The meeting starts at 7 pm, but we will begin a little early to give attendees time to socialize.  Take a minute to make sure we see your first and last name on your screen.  You will have the option to change it if it is not complete.  We need this information for attendance. 

Cathy Harnisch will be monitoring the chat room so if you have any questions, post it there and she will respond.  When the meeting starts we ask that everyone mute themselves.  Also, if you are not on the agenda to speak, please turn off your camera. 

We received requests from a number of members saying they could not attend Zoom meetings because they did not have the equipment or were concerned about security.  Others cannot attend on a Thursday evening.  Therefore, starting with tomorrows meeting, we will be live-streaming to our YouTube channel.

Our channel is located on YouTube at “Merrimack Valley Quilters Quilt Guild”.  There is a video on the channel with information about our guild.  It is a good idea to prepare ahead of the meeting by finding the channel.  Don’t forget to subscribe and hit the bell to be notified of future videos.  We will hold recorded guild meetings in our library for a week or two to accommodate those who could not attend live.   It is important to keep in mind that while viewing the YouTube live stream, you will not be able to participate in the meeting.

MVQ’s First Virtual Guild Meeting

Posted on

Will Be – Thursday, October 15, 2020

I am pleased to announce that Merrimack Valley Quilters Guild will present their very first live, virtual guild meeting.  We will use the platform to present the meeting.  An email will be sent to all the members with a link to join the meeting.  Please feel free to share the email and link to friends that wish to attend as a guest.  You could invite some friends over to have a virtual meeting small gathering!

The meeting will start around 6:15 – 6:30 pm as a live, open meeting to give everyone a chance to socialize. The meeting will be called to order at 7:00 pm.  At that time, we will request that anyone who is not on the agenda to speak to please turn off their camera.  We will silence all audio at that time except for the person who is speaking.  We are not planning to schedule a speaker.  Therefore, the meeting should not be too much longer than an hour.  We will have information presented by our committees and a show and tell segment.  There will be a chat option available during the meeting if you would like to ask questions. 

Please contact me or any member of the board if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you and I look forward to “seeing” you on the 15th.

Elizabeth Swan, President
