2018 ANWG Annual Membership Meeting

Saturday, May 19, 2018 ~ 8:30 ~ 3:00 PM

Oxford Suites Hotel, Jantzen Beach, Portland, OR

We would like to invite all ANWG reps or another member of your guild to join us in Portland for the Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, May 19. We will have a continental breakfast available at 8:30 AM; check-in, drop off show and share, with the meeting scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM.

If you or another member of your guild is not able to attend, a member from another guild can attend and vote for you with a pre-submitted proxy. The proxy  needs to be sent to Secretary Melanie Smith by May 9.

Show and Share is a popular part of these meetings, so please bring one item per guild to display. We will have a vote on the best item in several categories. To reduce the amount of paper you need to bring, we will have a sign-up sheet for each item on display and if anyone wants the weaving instructions/draft they can list their email to have the information sent to them by the person who made the item.

A block of rooms at reduced rates is available at the Oxford Suites Jantzen Beach hotel, King rooms $143 or 2 Queens for $156. plus tax for Friday and Saturday nights. Reservations for these reduced rate rooms need to be made by April 18, 2018 by calling (503) 283-3030, or (800) 548-7848 and mentioning the Assn. of NW Weavers’ Guild group. After that date the rooms left unsold will be released and any reservations made will be subject to availability and at the regular rates.

Rooms are available by 4 PM, check-out is 11 AM. Cancellations can be made without charge by 3 PM, 24 hours before arrival. Here’s their website: https://www.oxfordsuitesportland.com/

We have a lot of good news to bring you at this event, so we hope to see many of you there. As a reminder, the 2018-19 Challenge Grant applications are due by April 15. Winners will be announced in Portland at the AMM. After lunch on Saturday we will have a presentation about the 2019 ANWG Conference in Prince George, BC by Serena Black of the Conference Committee. Come and join us in Portland for the AMM.
