Reports of committees

Membership Committee Report (Bob, Dave, Gayle, Jim, Mike A)


The Membership Committee met January 24, minutes posted on website.

1)      Thank you letter and reminder to current members was designed and sent for printing

2)      Approved $500 for printing for the year.  Cost to print postcards for the countywide mailing would be $450 – would wipe out the budget for the year.  Should we hold off on that this year or do we want to approve more and try to get more folks as members?  Membership committee recommends NOT doing the countywide mailing.  Approved unanimously by board.

3)      Board also asked that we check into pricing for an insert in the Watch and Plaindealers in place of the county-wide mailer.

Membership committee report was accepted.
