Status & Review

Deadlines & plans for the fall promotional efforts, including flyers in the Council for the Arts & Dance Network newsletters, and posters were drawn up.

General Discussion

  1. Review of action items & plans for fall promo

  2. The Bronson Center will be a place we’ll keep in mind for other larger events, but we won’t move there, since the atmosphere is not as nice.

    Louis clarified that he will be the contact for just dance promotions, and that he will organize the phone tree for the next Just Eat, and to be used for the first Just Dance. Jan, Raymond & Andy volunteered to be at the top level of the phone tree.

    Volker looked into membership in the Council for the Arts. It will give us access to advertising media – flyers, newsletters, & web promotions.

    Volker will sign us up, and pay the $50 for now for the membership. Jan will sign us up for Dance Network.


    Name Action Item Deadlines

    Jon & Charlotte are still working on completing the poster. Charlotte has the text from Jon. Ian has also put the old poster that Jorge found on the website. Andy will contact Charlotte re poster, compare with the web poster, and possibly merge them, send to group for feedback, and look at doing the layout on computer as a simpler method.

  6. Completed?

  7. Pie

  8. This part of the meeting went off without any hitches.

  9. Review - are we doing what we say what we’ll do

  10. Some of our ideas will not be possible until a time when we have higher attendance, as the volunteer efforts of the core group are stretched thin. The review of action items in the meeting is helping with having a clearer picture of what we are/are not accomplishing.

    Perhaps there are people who don’t want to come to the meetings, but would be willing to help out with some of the volunteer efforts.

  11. Review meeting

Meeting process > B+ : ) as per Ian!
