After much speculation and concern, Roslye assures us that our agreement for the space with Hamline is still solid and we look forward to an update from her at our next meeting.
At yesterday's meeting we affirmed Donna Mae as our treasurer. She is curious to know what the activity level will be. We know that Joan is working on PayPal, but are unsure what that means for our treasurer. We assured her that we will need a treasurer as there will be bills to pay and hopefully some corporate donors to track on top of the PayPal issue. Donna Mae will begin checking into different types of accounts and begin signing us up for one.
Jan Marie mentioned that Joan was able to find someone to help us with PayPal. I do have a friend willing to work with us on the website, but we need to decide on adequate compensation to offer him. He will be able to set up PayPal, forms, and proposals to the link. We will also need to wait for our logo to be decided upon.
Although Diane was not present, we are looking forward to seeing her designs at the next meeting.
We are hoping that Joan and Gayle will soon be able to distill the call for proposals into a promotional flier to give to the MLS office soon. We are not sure when the MLS newsletter will come out, but they should be in touch with Connie on this issue.
At our next meeting we are hoping to find out more from Roslye about the space and possible food issues at Hamline. We are hoping to have a Logo review and also discuss the website cost estimate. We will also get a report from Donna Mae about the status of our bank set up.
We would very much like to reach out to the Hamline students. We would like to ask our Hamiline affiliates to suggest a coffee shop or space near Hamline and a better date/time for our next meeting. We have tentatively set the meeting for Sunday, 7/16/06 at 1pm at Vera's. However, we would very much like to accommodate the MALS students in feeling welcome and included. We are also finding that Sunday afternoons are not the best times for these meetings during the summer months. Perhaps a week-night or early Saturday morning would work better.
Please be sure to send us any feed back, ideas, offers of support, or concerns that you may have.Posted by at June 26, 2006 9:29 AM
