Members’ Meeting Minutes

January 5, 2016

Meeting Begins 7:58PM @ Tenaya Creek Brewery

President’s Report (Greg):   “I’ll make it quick…don’t have much….status quo once again!”

Happy New Year!  Here we go again!

Vice President’s Report (Johnnie):  Wanting to ask the Brooklyn Bowl if they would like our help with marketing on our website (with or without the provided comp’d tickets.).  After looking at the list of upcoming shows, there’s a possibility of extra GALACTIC or IRATION tickets—the others may have plenty of sales already.

Membership:  The 2016 Calendars with photos of past LVJBS posters are here!  They look great and are $5.  With the paid 2016 yearly membership, members will receive a complimentary one.  There will be one calendar for the ‘couples’ memberships.  Members must be current in order to qualify for any of the Member-perks (comp’d tickets, etc.)

·         $10/month

·         $100 for a SINGLE membership (if paid prior March’s members’ meeting)

·         $150 for a COUPLES’ membership (living in the same household)

·         $60 for a six-month SINGLE membership (Jan.-June or July-Dec.)

Website update:  JT has been working with Stacey on its changes.  Greg to contact our webmaster, Tim, to get it up and running by Feb. 1st.  Thanks for everyone’s help and patience.

Secretary’s Report (Jessica):

Happy New Year! 

Congrats to our elected 2016 MAYOR:  Mr. Justin Gorgun

Treasurer’s Report (Paige):

*Our Holiday party raffle winner of the 2016 Membership was:  JARREN CARSEY

*Similar to ‘Amazonsmmiles.com’, SMITH’S GROCERY STORES offer a portion of their sales to quarterly go back to non-profits, with the use of their ‘savings-card’.  Look into this for LVJBS benefits, if you are a Smith’s shopper! 

*Please use the WILD APRICOT site to pay online for the annual membership.  A check or cash can also be brought to the Members’ Meetings for February or March, if needed.

Mayor’s Report (Justin:  absent via Jessica):   Color:  Gratefully-Cool Cobalt Blue

PRODUCTION REPORT (Greg): 

*Been thinking that a CUBENSIS show for the LVJBS is long-overdue. This may make for a decent event at THE HIDEAWAY, or possibly VINYL.  More info TBD.

*DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS are looking for a Vegas show on a Wed. or Thurs. in late March/early April.  They have been put in contact with Andrew at Vinyl and we can use The Hideaway, as a back-up plan.  More info TBD.

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

*Fundraising Committee (Kathy via JT):  No new news.  Jessica knows of a Middle School in need of Fine Arts Dept. assistance for any upcoming help from the LVJBS.  There may be a raffle for the Dead Winter Carpenters show, if that ends up being scheduled.
