March 28, 2015 Board Minutes

Miss Representation was a success. It created buzz for RMA. It earned $38, which was a bit of a disappointment. Lisa would like to have a similar event in the fall.

The Impact Award survey has gone out. The deadline is Monday, 4/5 at the end of the day. Finalists were people who garnered multiple nominations.

Banquet:

1. Hoping Jason Dusett can once again communicate with organizations for awards.

2. Jack and Len are putting together some different ticket pricing structures for our consideration. The goal would be to increase ticket sales and give members more of a break on tickets. We may end up keeping things the same, but we want to do the math and see if another structure makes sense. This will have to be decided at next meeting.

3. Rachel will reserve a date at the convention center for next year, so we can announce that at the 5/9 banquet.

Next meeting:

Wednesday, 4/8 at WROC at 7 pm.

Please park on side of building and come to newsroom door. (you will see news cars parked at the base of the steps)
