Dr. Linda F. Wilson, Department Chair for Math, Computer Science, & Information Systems at Texas Lutheran University was our guest speaker for this meeting. Her topic was Cyber Security for Quilt Guilds and she provided us with a great deal of insight into how to manage the challenges of cyber security in today's world. There was information for guilds and for personal use. Dr. Wilson did allow us to record the meeting and you'll find that link in Program Notes below. She also provided a PDF copy of her slides. If you weren't able to join us at the meeting, we hope you'll take the time to look through her slides and/or view the recording. There is a great deal of valuable information for you to share with your guilds, family, and friends!
SCCQG Quarterly Meeting, October 14, 2023 - Philanthropy and Volunteers
Philanthropy is an integral part of the quilting world. SCCQG would like to share more information about the types of projects undertaken and the types of charities/community organizations that member guilds support. A questionnaire will be sent out to the guilds requesting specific information about projects and charities/organizations. We would also like to discuss ways to increase volunteer participation in philanthropic projects and how to increase the amount of quilts completed. Many guilds have too many tops and not enough volunteers/people to quilt them.
Check out the Calendar at the bottom of the Home Page!
We're getting back to something like normal. You can see many more events and quilt shows listed in the calendar. Is your guild starting to plan an event? Send your event information to firstname.lastname@example.org for Sandy, our webmaster, so that she can post your information on the Calendar.
