run smoothly, maintain our membership, and grow as well as provide for the needs of our
membership. Please think about ways to improve our communications, involvement, and help
determine which aspects of the Guild may need to be discontinued and what areas need more focus
so we can improve on fulfilling the needs of the group as we re-define our priorities.
With several members leaving, continue to encourage others to join us; be there for our election of
new officers this fall and sign up for committees and projects; we need a firm commitment and
dedicated follow-through so we can move forward. Please feel free to contact Erica with anything you wish to share.
