Members’ Meeting Minutes
November 3, 2015
Meeting Begins: 7:47PM @ Rocky’s
President’s Report (Greg): “Let’s do this thing!”
The 2016 Nominations for LVJBS Offices are being made tonight. One nomination one made online via Wild Apricot. The rest will be done tonight.
We were able to secure THE HIDEAWAY for our LVJBS Holiday party on Saturday, Dec. 12th and Delta Nove has confirmed their attendance. We will give them cash and ask for Holiday donations to give them for their ventures. (Jimmy C. gave his side-review of the D’Nove Xmas album, the hot peanut sauce at Rocky’s, and the ‘Breaking Benjammin & Shinedown….)
We foresee a few more shows for 2016 at the Hard Rock Café & Hard Rock Live venues. More info TBA.
Vice President’s Report (Kathy): See you at the Tecopa Takeover!
Secretary’s Report (Jessica):
Last month’s ‘Adopt-a-Highway’ clean-up plan was canceled on Oct. 18th due to the flooded weather. The new date is SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22nd @ 9am. Please tell your friends. The more helpers, the quicker it takes! J
Treasurer’s Report (Paige): The money donation to Tecopa’s SILENT DISCO was sent. We will have T-shirts for sale and the LVJBS banner will be up.
Mayor’s Report (Frobi): ~absent~

Fundraising Committee(Kathy): The discussed 15th Anniversary calendar can be made for under $4/ea. Instead of the recently discussed self-made calendar, we have decided to go with this company. We will have them readied by Dec. 15th. The calendar will go from Dec. 2015 to Jan. 2016, with various LVJBS event posters as the artwork.
We are looking into having an LVJBS Sponsorship package for various businesses to donate and have ads on our website and displayed at our events. We figure if the 10 people (approx.) that frequent our monthly meetings each found 5 sponsors, this will be an easy way to add to the current list of sponsors. Discussion of possible sponsors: Brooklyn Bowl, Hard Rock Live, Hard Rock Café, The Dispensary, Rocky’s.
PR Report (Jenny):
*The Newsletter has been looking great and is a great way to keep up with current info.
