July Meeting - 

Many thanks to the Santa Monica Quilt Guild for hosting our July meeting. We will post the meeting notes soon.  In the meantime, we wanted to make you aware of information that has come to us relative to discussions at the meeting. 
Insurance - In the past we were informed that while our guests at our meetings, workshops, events are covered by our liability policy, our volunteer members were not. A recent inquiry from one of the guilds sent us to the insurance company for clarification.  We're happy to tell you our members are covered as long as they are conducting or participating in Guild/SCCQG business.
Insurance - Errors and Omissions Coverage for Guild and SCCQG Boards - There was a question about who and what is covered under our Errors and Omissions coverage in the policy.  While there was some discussion about that, we feel it is important to have a definitive answer from the insurance company. They have provided that to us.  Please go to the Insurance page to review the information.

Meeting Date:  July 13, 2019

Topic:  Quilt Guild Finances – the Role of the Treasurer and Best Practices

Hosted by:  Santa Monica Quilt Guild

Contact/RSVP: Olivia Carnahan, liv4quilts@aol.com
New Member Orientation:    9:30 am

General Meeting:        10:00 am. to 12:00 noon

Location:  Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, 3655 Centinela Avenue, Los Angeles, CA.  The church is located in the Mar Vista area on Centinela between Venice Blvd. and Palms.
Please note:  Our host guild will be serving morning refreshments and water, but out of respect for our host church, we will NOT be serving coffee or tea.  However, you're free to bring your own coffee or tea. 

The role of the Treasurer is an important one in the guild.  Generally speaking they are responsible for all things money including government and state reporting.  This is especially true for those guilds that hold non-profit status with the federal and state governments.  While those responsibilities generally fall to the Treasurer, it is important that all board officers understand what needs to be done and when to do it.  In that vein it is also important that each guild follows a clearly defined set of guidelines. What are those?  You tell us! What guidelines has your guild defined in your bylaws and standing rules that help your treasurer and board manage guild funds. 

We’ll review the many reports that must be filed, but we also want you to help us understand your guild best practices.  While any and all officers and members are invited to join us for the meeting, this is a meeting that will be particularly useful to guild Treasurers.

Welcome to the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds!

Welcome to the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds (SCCQG) website. The purpose of this site is to provide council information to member guilds, business partners, and individual members.

The Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds (a 501 (c) (3) association) was organized for several purposes:
 
  • To foster and promote knowledge and participation in the craft/art form of quilting, patchwork, appliqué, and all other aspects of quilt making.
 
  • To act as an information network for quilt guilds with similar objectives in promoting continued interest in quilt making.
 
  • To provide a forum for cooperative endeavors among all quilt guilds in Southern California and surrounding areas.
 
  • To readily inform quilt guilds and individual quilters of resources available to them.
 
  • To encourage development of friendships state, nation, and world wide.
 
  • To foster education through cooperative sharing of speakers, teachers, and programs for member guilds.
 
  • To act as a resource for those wishing to organize new guilds.
 
  • To maintain a calendar for quilting events in the Southern California geographic area and to make such information readily available.
