LAS VEGAS JAM BAND SOCIETY
Members’ Meeting Minutes
December 1, 2015
Meeting Begins: 7:45PM @ Rocky’s
President’s Report (Greg):
“Keeping things going for 2016!”
In 2015, we’ve been:
Having ‘LVJBS Friends & Family’ monthly events, have been grateful for our ‘Brooklyn Bowl’ connection with our free tickets for members-raffle, our Hard Rock Café/Live connection, and have been working with the Hard Rock Hotel and their ‘VINYL’ shows now, along with supporting the community with our ‘Adopt-a-Highway’ clean-ups and support to the ‘Lone Woof Rescue’.
**(SPAFFORD wants to return in February. Thoughts were the $10 cover may have been a ‘concern’….please support these shows, members! It’s less than a price of a beverage at most places....)
Future Vinyl-mentioned shows: DELTA NOVE or SHAKEY FEELIN’
*& we plan on having NO ISIS MEMBERS for 2016!
Vice President’s Report (Kathy):
Last weekend was awesome! Glad to see JT recovering well from his recent procedure! While JT is ‘out of the 2016 office’, former VP, Kathy G., will ‘proxy’ and fill-in for any Vice President duties until his return. This year has been enjoyable and the ‘Friends & Family’ connections that the LVJBS has had with the community has been lovely!
Secretary’s Report (Jessica):
Thanks to Kathy, Fred for assisting me with the ‘fall’ ‘Adopt-a-Highway’ clean-up on November 22nd. (& thanks to Ellen for stopping by—yet, we had already tied up our bags and left!) Be sure to RSVP on the Facebook event-page for attendance, so the group knows to contact or wait for any late-helpers! J
It’s been a great year of music and the community help and support feels good! J I’ll continue my Secretarial duties for 2016. I will continue my goal of posting the meeting minutes, within 48 hours of the meeting (yet, within one week, being the latest!)
Treasurer’s Report (Paige):
*We’ve made $8.05 with the ‘AmazonSmiles’ non-profit support-return program. It’s simple to use. Just go to www.amazonsmiles.com for the SAME amazon.com pages, but select Las Vegas Jam Band Society for a portion of all sales, returning our way!
*We will have a table set up to sell our 15th anniversary T-shirts at the Holiday party. They make great gifts! ;)
Mayor’s Report (Frobi): ~absent~

It’s been a good year of music! Looking forward to 2016.

*Happy for our Brooklyn Bowl donated tickets, yet we will be making changes to the comp-list, for any missed shows which one registers for. One ‘missed’ show can happen (emergencies only please—there are alternates on the will call list, if known prior to 3pm, day of show, so the music can be enjoyed by another!) and please note: members will be taken off the request-list if any other comp’d-shows are missed.
