LAS VEGAS JAM BAND SOCIETY

Members’ Meeting Minutes

July 14, 2015

Meeting Begins:  7:45PM

President’s Report (Greg): “Everything’s going great—Let’s keep it how it’s going!”

Vice President’s Report (Kathy):  It’s been a great Summer.  Let’s keep it up.  The poster for the 15thAnniversary is in the making.  More details later.

Secretary’s Report (Jessica):  This Summer has been good for marketing.  Many LVJBS info cards have been given out at the recent shows.  Check out via Facebook or web:  ‘Living with the Dead’, a Deadhead documentary, from someone met at Santa Clara, who showed interest in the LVJBS’ work and is creating a documentary: www.deadheadsdoc.com

Treasurer’s Report (Paige):  The LVJBS has made some money, in return from the ‘AmazonSmiles’ purchases.  A small percentage of any ‘Amazon’ purchase, returns to LVJBS when you order from www.amazonsmiles.com  and enter the non-profit Jamband Society of America.  (It will save the information for the future orders, once found.)

We now have a P.O. Box to help ‘centralize’ our paperwork/mail.

One new member, Carron Haggerty, was met at High Sierra and has joined LVJBS for the remainder of 2015.  Welcome!  J 

Mayor’s Report (Frobi (absent) via Jessica):

COLOR:  Beautiful Psychedelic Rainbows

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Fundraising Committee (John & Kathy):  Pictures of the past LVJBS posters were selected and have been sent in for the 2016 Calendar.  They ‘should’ be ready at the same time as the ordered T-shirts.  A brochure with LVJBS and the newly added P.O. Box info will be available.  This will also be found on the ‘Wild Apricot’ site, via our ‘donations’ page.

A ‘Jerry’ nice tapestry was shown. This Jerry-face, signed, on vinyl was created by an Artist friend of Ray Hansen’s.  The Fundraising Committee is thinking a $5 Raffle Ticket.  More info TBD.

PR Committee (Jenny):  Focusing thoughts of duties and efforts, on more outside events (i.e. Tacopa Takeover), since most other events have been hosted by other promoters/other venues.

*The Wild Apricot events are now updated through October.  This will help stay organized for the comp’d tickets (10 of most shows) and help with the ‘alternate’ attendees for those who decline. 

*The Monthly Meeting reminders will be accurate and consistent:  one week prior reminder and a one day prior reminder, was decided as best, now that the Yahoo! Group is closed. 

*Contact Paige if there are any leads on where to order ‘tye-dye’ Lanyards (badge holders).  Thanks!

*Greg shared the T-shirt samples/fabric samples.  Group asked for 2 style for woman (a ladies’ cut T-shirt and a razorback Tank top) and one for the Mens’, yet in two colors.  The Officers will finalize the order and create a pre-order at the upcoming Officers’ Meeting. 

*TACOPA TAKEOVER 2.0—Megan shared the decided 2015 dates:  November 6-8, 2015.

Thoughts:  An extended weekend date (Sunday for acoustic Sunday morning music), Solar Sound System (Mike Andrieu), Sound by Dan.  Jeffrey T. for community drums, Live Art, Silent auction with money back to the town and Tacopa’s chosen groups, a Residential Rate and Discount for residents, a silent disco (a possible ‘gofundme’ account for the $1000 purchase of headphones/system will begin), & more.  Thought bands:  Scott Pemberton, The Signals, Cubensis.
