Victorian Quilters is an incorporated body which holds elections at an Annual General Meeting each August. According to its constitution, the Committee comprises four Executive Members and nine Non-Executive members. Various sub-committees exist and are operated by other willing volunteers. No organisation can function without an energetic and dedicated governing body.

At the 2016 AGM a new committee was appointed. Congratulations and welcome to the new committee members and thank you to the members who are continuing to offer their time and energy to help steer VQ into the future.

Victorian Quilters Inc is also very grateful to the members who retired from the committee this last year. Thank you for your service.

At the Victorian Quilters Inc Annual General Meeting on August 13th, 2016 a Special Resolution was passed.  This Special Resolution stated:

“That Victorian Quilters Inc. adopt the current Model Rules of Incorporated Associations, and any amendments made to them as published by Consumer Affairs Victoria, to be the Constitution of Victorian Quilters Inc., with the inclusion of “groups” as a “member” and no other alterations.”
