Guild Development Retreat

HGA's Guild Development Retreat is a one-day virtual learning experience to educate, motivate, and inspire fiber art guilds. Through panels and discussions, we hope to strengthen guild leadership, unite organizations, and provide a platform for the sharing of ideas. We want participants to end the day feeling motivated in their effort to build and grow their guilds so that all guilds can thrive.

Schedule

Panels will cover a variety of topics addressing the needs of local guilds and similar organizations that bring together and support fiber artists. In between each panel we will have organized discussion rooms to discuss the topics covered in the panels as well as others.
