Committees & Task Forces

MQG Task Forces

The guild is exploring a new member engagement model for getting member feedback and input into MQG decisions with the launch of task forces. The pilot program is being conducted from October 2016 through October 2018. If successful, the task force/committee model will replace most Committees. If you have questions about task forces, please email alissa@themodernquiltguild.com.

If you have an idea for a task force that brings benefits to MQG members, please submit a task force proposal.

MQG Committees

A number of committees provide support and guidance to the guild while helping to advance the mission of the MQG. Established in November 2013, the goal of our committees is to involve MQG members in strategic decisions and the development of the organization.

These committees are comprised of volunteer members and are chaired by a member of the MQG Board of Directors, a staff member or a general member.
