Approval of Previous Minutes

Minutes of the previous meeting on June 26, 2007 were reviewed. A motion to accept the old minutes was made and passed.

Treasurer's Report

Treasurer's report was presented. All hall rental fees have been paid through December of this year (2007).

The annual report for 2006-2007 was also presented and discussed.

A motion to accept the treasurer's report was made and passed.

Old Business

A follow-up on changing the By-Laws was discussed. All agreed to sending email and providing print-outs notifying members about voting on this change at/before the September dance, so that the issue could then be voted on at the October dance.

Connie updated everyone on the caller and band schedule. Bands have been secured through December, and she is still getting the Spring dances booked. We discussed giving beginner callers the chance to call at least one dance each month (perhaps the first dance after the break). Tim and Jesh expressed interest in doing so. Connie brought up the chance to maybe have a small contra dance at the Art Museum as it is a very nice venue and would be a good showcase to attract new dancers.

New Business

A motion was proposed to consider another dance at Mt. Tabor in either November or December. Motion was approved.

We discussed advertising and promoting upcoming dances. We decided to include the entire or multiple month schedule on flyers so people would have access to dates in advance. Fred agreed to make up these flyers on the website so members/dancers can print them out and distribute them. Tim submitted an ad to the paper and Connie suggested having one on NPR.

Fred then updated us on the status of the website which is now much more hands-on to both members and non-members.

Next meeting scheduled for November 6, 2007.

Meeting adjourned at 9:00pm.
