Nov. 18, 2015 Board Meeting Minutes

RMA Meeting Minutes 11/18

Present: Rachel, Dave, Jack, Rob, Lisa, Juan, Len

****Banquet Subcommittee to plan the program, including audio/visual presentations will meet Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. at Matthews. Just show up if you want to be involved. The fundamental question is: What do we want this banquet to look like? And we will go from there.

  1. Send out a save the date for banquet around the holidays
  1. 11/12 speed networking event was okay, not the turnout we wanted. In future, Lisa says it might be better if we do this just for students and don’t have bar and appetizers. We were hoping to break even, but will probably end up owing some money.
  1. Changing Face of Radio-still trying to find a date and location. Lisa says possibly after the February mixer. We are seeing if perhaps WXXI can sponsor.
  1. Women’s History Month movie – Lisa isn’t getting anywhere right now, but hasn’t given up. She’d like to show “Makers: Women in Hollywood.” March 10 is available. Cost $450. We need a cosponsor.
  1. February 11 Mixer – Matthews. First drink free plus free appetizers. This has been a very successful membership drive for us in the past.

Banquet:

Please see spreadsheet Juan mailed out for timelines. (Email below.) We have to be very disciplined about getting the Impact Award survey out right after our February mixer, which has been a great vehicle to get new members.
