Be a New Member Buddy!
New members, you can get acquainted with MCQA members, activities and events with an informational packet given to new members. A current member will take you under their wing and help them become more familiar with MCQA. If you are interested please let the membership committee know.
Annual dues in the amount of $15.00 are payable on January 1st of each calendar year. Renewal notices will not be mailed so please mark your calendars and pay your dues in a timely manner at a meeting or by mail.
Membership privileges include use of our extensive library of quilting books, monthly newsletters, free or reduced rates on programs, classes and retreats offered through MCQA. Most importantly however is the friendship and sharing with other quilters. Members can also choose to join smaller Friendship Groups that meet on varying dates and times.
Available Membership Items
In 2011 a new membership information document was completed by the membership committee. It will be a helpful tool for new members to learn more about MCQA. A copy is available by clicking here. In addition, a new brochure has been printed providing a valuable tool to distribute to quilters. It explains the goals of MCQA as well details on membership, meetings, charity work and projects. If you know a good source for distributing some brochures, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
New members should include a completed membership form with their dues check. Current members may use the membership form to change any of their personal information. Checks should be payable to MCQA and brought to a meeting or sent to:
MCQA Treasurer, P. O. Box 411, Marquette, MI 49855
