The North Carolina Quilt Symposium, Inc. is a non-profit corporation that was formed after the first North Carolina Quilt Symposium in Raleigh in 1979. At the time of its formation, its primary purpose was to insure the continuation of an annual Quilt Symposium, but its purpose as stated in its Charter, "to promote and perpetuate the art of quilting through regularly sponsored symposia within the state of North Carolina and to sponsor other projects designed to preserve, continue, and advance this art form in the direction of the Board of Directors," has allowed it to broaden its scope.

The NCQSI is not a member organization. The work of the NCQSI is done by a Board of Directors, elected from throughout the state. There are no paid staff members. All directors are volunteers. They attend the annual Symposium and perhaps one other meeting annually. Sole financial support for the Board comes from a percentage of the net proceeds from each Symposium.

Our Board consists of members who have a genuine desire to promote, perpetuate and preserve the art of quilting in North Carolina. Requirements for board membership include those with this desire, residency in North Carolina, and the willingness to attend the annual Symposium and perhaps one other meeting each year at member’s expense. The term of office is four years with up to two 2-year renewals.  We welcome all requests for inclusion on our Board. An application form and more information are available on the Board of Directors Duties page.
