IABA BOARD MEETING MINUTES
DEC. 2, 2019 VIA PHONE CONFERENCE
IN ATTENDANCE ANDREW MURANO, ANNE CUCCHI, JANET LOMBARDI, ANN BOSSO-JOHNSON, SIMONA FAVA
Andrew called the meeting to order at 5:04.
Minutes (November) approved as written.
Gina – update on Christmas party. Venue is done, caterer is ready, need count by Friday. Andrew can pick up light bars. For the band, (there are 18) we can order pizzas and such. Paul Bonaquisti is donating a case of red and is bringing other wine at $9/bottle. What we drink we’ll pay for and can take the rest back. We’ll get beer also. We won’t mess with drink tickets…folks will probably not drink that much. Andrew suggested a couple different kinds of beer. Gina needs to finish up the awards. She asks that the board members show up at 4. Janet has sent out one more e-blast – and we’re now at 40 registered. Janet asked us to reach out to at least 5 people.
Discussion on awards and categories – which names should go where. Andrew suggests that each board member email him to vote on the awards.
Janet -discussion on voting for board members update. Currently there are 10 nominees. The incoming slate can take the 7 people picked and select which office each will assume. We should perhaps clarify the bylaws to make sure the method is clear going forward.
Marketing: - Janet likes the idea of a packet going out to members. Decals are nice. We can do a survey on some marketing thoughts and approach the membership to see what they would like to incorporate. We should gear this to getting new members, keeping members, and building your business. Gina suggests we write a plan – which may require a committee!
We all “sang” happy birthday to Andrew!
Andrew adjourned the meeting at 6:15 pm.
