For a number of years, the Quiet Water Society has been able to invest a portion of the receipts from the Quiet Water Symposium in projects that support the mission of the Society. This year, the QWS Board of Directors has chosen to put the grant program on hold while we focus on putting in place the new leadership needed to plan and execute QWS 2018.
The Board anticipates that the expenses associated with QWS 2018 will increase and that greater reserves will be required to sustain the event. Once we find ourselves on a more stable path, we hope to resume the QWS grant program. It has been a pleasure, in the past, to work with so many wonderful groups and we look forward to being able to re-engage in the future.
