DNTG Charms Incentive Program 2023-2024
The purpose of this program is to increase member participation in DNTG events. Members can earn charms during our fiscal year (June-May) by:
Participating in any DNTG activity 12 times during the year
Completing a workshop, education, program, or GCC project
Bringing Show & Tell to a General meeting
Posting on our Facebook Group
Completing a DNTG annual Stitch-a-long or Sampler project
Getting a new member
Going to seminars / ReTreat
And many more!
There are 17 charms you can collect - and if you came to the September coffee, you are eligible for a bonus coffee cup charm!
Charms will be awarded at the end of every General meeting. You cannot double dip! So, if you claim a charm for completing a workshop project, and it’s also on your MAGIC list, you’ll have to decide which charm you want. You may not get two charms for one project – or get multiple of the same charm. So, if you bring Show & Tell to every general meeting, you’ll only receive one charm for the year.
