Lifetime Honorary Membership
Early in 2019, Quilters Above the Clouds revised their Bylaws to include recognition of outstanding members who have contributed above and beyond to the growth and excellence of our guild. In most cases, an Honorary Lifetime Membership is considered for someone who can no longer be an active participant in the guild due to health issues or because of the need to relocate to a distant area. In general, a member should have been an active guild member for 5 or more years and made significant contributions to Quilters Above the Clouds. Members of the guild may nominate someone for this honor either in writing or in person at a board meeting. The Executive Board will then consider the nomination and make the final decision. Lifetime Members pay no dues and receive the guild’s newsletter via email. In addition they are welcome to attend any meeting or activity whenever they can.
