Gaylord Area Jaycees
General Membership Meeting Minutes
September 5, 2002
President Lori called the meeting to order at 7:15 PM.
Present: Alicia Conradson, Lori Dobosy, Renee Suratt
With the limited number of members, we had a very informal, information style meeting.
First off, Renee is Erin's maid-of-honor and has contact with her. She
promised to get with her about Gaylordopoly and I told her even if she has
nothing, that's great, we just need to know that.
Renee is VERY excited about upcoming dances. She said the school likes
that we have them as well because then they don't feel the need to and they
don't have to worry about them. Our committee has been set as chair: Jen
Crawford, committee: Traci and Renee. Jen would like to pull off a dance
in September is possible. She also is keen on the idea of having them the
same Friday each month. She will be contacting the CC early next week to
schedule. We also came up with the idea last night to have a community
type survey for the kids at the dance. If the kids complete the survey,
they will get a coupon for $1 off the admission to the next dance. The
survey will ask them things like if they think theme dances are a good
idea, what they would like to see at dances and what things they think our
community needs. A master CPG for dances has been written. It is
basically a fill in the date.
Both Alicia and Renee are excited to help with FFN. Renee is really bummed
because she has class the night of FFN, but she is more than willing to do what
she can before. It's scary, but FFN is coming up really fast.
We talked about socials and ID projects. Renee would love to see us go
horseback riding. She will be calling around to different places and
getting us info next week.
We also tried to plan a regular social and during that social, we would
like to do a 15 min or so ID on brainstorming. This brainstorming will
help next year's board in writing their chapter plan. Traci had mentioned
the coffee shop. We all though this was a great idea. Something different
from a bar. Not knowing when dances would be and FFN meetings, we couldn't
plan a date. Renee thought we could have a social/FFN meeting. Like work
on FFN then go out afterward. Lori will ask Traci since she is familiar with the
coffee shop if she would please find out if we could have a social there and
if there is a good night to come. We even thought like 7-9 on a week night
might not be bad, especially if there is music or something.
We also decided to pledge to become part of the Jaycees Homeland Security
Renee thinks we should have some type of rule about needing to attend
meetings and projects. She is going to be active and wants to see others
become more involved, not just pay their money.
Motion by Lori, second by Renee to adjourn the meeting. All in favor. None opposed.
Meeting adjourned 8:00 PM.
