3. Event Update:

Mixer went well at Lostborough Brewery. Lisa will send out a thank you via email, along with event flyer. We lost $63 on event, which no one thought was bad. We brought in a lot of new faces.

We have to add attendees to the email list. (Juan will scan, Rachel will add.)

Thursday, September 24- How to Cover a Crisis event, panel will be selected by next week, event to be held at Fisher, 6:30pm

Do we want refreshments? Chips and water perhaps.

We will reach out to PRSA to promote the event, as PR pro’s may be interested.
