  • JANUARY 2024 LVJBS Officers/Committee Meeting Minutes 

    Date: January 2, 2023 

    Meeting Start: 7:02 PM

    Location: Virtual (Officers)

    Attendees:  Jessica G., Greg S., Paige T., Angela C., Shana B., Johnnie T.

    Item 1: President’s Report (Jessica):   “Happy New Year everyone!”

  • A.    For virtual officer meetings Jessica is able to use her work account safely for no-limit GoogleMeets.
  • B.     JT will share the spreadsheet for brochures with other officers once complete. He has sent out 100 so far.  (He had 100 printed and is working on getting them addressed and out.)
  • C.     Recap of the need for new venue:
  • We are looking for a venue without gaming that is willing to allow us to charge a cover. The goal is to establish a mutually beneficial relationship, possibly have an info table, 50/50 raffle, while helping them advertise while supporting a non-profit. We plan remove is to connect with “The Usual Place,” and The Sand Dollar. Many venues book out months in advance, which is a challenge. Las Vegas Blues Society’s President, Jimmy Carpenter is interested in a collaborative future event with us. Other venues we are considering contacting are Craig Ranch Amphitheater and the Beverly Theatre.
  • D.    Business Cards for Officers – We plan to order a smaller amount next time to keep information up to date cost effectively.
  • E.     Recap of Holidaze Party last month:
  • To compensate Matt, Diane, and Richard for hosting we plan to offer complimentary membership and recognize Richard as an “honorary” member. Another option is a gift card if they prefer. One port-a-potty was adequate.
  • F.     Instrument Donation – we plan to donate to a local school, a violin, guitar or trumpet. We will post on Facebook if someone has an instrument to donate. The goal is to donate before the end of school year, May 2024.
  • G.    JT made contact with Brooklyn Bowl in regards to once again providing comp-tix in exchange for advertising- has not received a response yet
  • H.    Committee Heads
  • We have had Archive and Fundraising committees in the past. JT volunteered to be head of the Fundraising Committee. We are in need of IT and Social Media Committees.
  • Item 2: Vice President’s Report & PRODUCTION Report (Greg):


  • A.    CUBENSIS is playing in Tempe, AZ on Thursday, 2/1 & asked about possibly coming here on Friday, 2/2.  Connected with Andrew Courtney about 24 Oxford at Virgin Hotel/Casino as possible venue. Andrew would provide hotel and passes for food. Thoughts on price are $10 for paid members, $15 advance, $20 night of. We would need 60-65 people to break even.
