Ellen shared her observations of the advocacy meeting held earlier in the day at Hasbrouck Heights. A suggestion was made that our December meeting focus on activism and Library advocacy.
Review of “Friendraisers” workshop
We reviewed the feedback from the “Friendraising” workshop. The feedback questionnaire indicated that the program was a success and proved helpful to the attendees. We discussed the dissemination of and access to the handout. Ellen will look into posting it through the BCCLS.org website under “Support Your Library” and having clickable content so that it is easy access for all.
Upcoming Showcase, May 4, 2017
We then reviewed the venue for the performers. Ellen will check on the use of the piano and sound systems etc. Performers should be advised to bring their own equipment as needed.
We settled on approximately 10 performances – 6 performing arts and 4 speakers, authors. These need to be reconfirmed. We estimated that each performer will take about 10 minutes (or less).
The invitation to the event (sent to firstname.lastname@example.org) will include a request for highly recommended performers. Jeanne Sylvester will organize the programming resources. The deadline for submissions is April 18. Emiliana Tuohey will prepare the email requesting the performers and the invitation to attend the event. It was decided that we will send a second and third message as reminders.
