Virginia Winn (hostess)
Stephanie and Scott McCravy
Previous meeting's minutes approved.
Treasurer's Report: We have $1952.00 between the kitty and the bank account.
The dancer reminder email list is up to date.
Lucy suggested that we not switch the date of our dance to accomodate dance weekends, since a majority of our dancers don't go to those events, and it seems we don't have as high attendance when we change the dates.
Virginia volunteered to be the mailing address for all the CDSS correspondence.
Fred's spreadsheet of our finances was reviewed and discussed. Fred explained that the spreadsheet illustrates if our finances balance out or if we are way off in one area or another. Lucy suggested adding a row to the spreadsheet for revenue and maybe leaving out the "free coupon" dancer row.
The subject of an "extra" dance utilizing Susan Fort's Lake Murray Contra facility has been tabled for the time being and removed from the recurring items list for the agenda. We will continue to include Susan in our community via Facebook and Twitter.
Outreach Committee Report
Newsletter: We don't know how many people look at the newsletter that is sent out via email. Some suggested printing it out and distributing them at the dance at the beginning and end of the year to get people looking at them and interested, then later on add it to the blog site or some other online forum. The Outreach Committee will continue to address this issue and see how it plays out.
Fliers: Marguerite has put up fliers at her gym.
Lucy suggested passing out a letter and making an announcement at the break regarding our status as a nonprofit organization (that is entirely dependent on volunteers) in the hope of recruiting more board members and volunteers.
