Members’ Meeting Minutes

August 6, 2019

Location:  Cheba Hut (Sahara/Rainbow)

Meeting Begins:  7:42 PM

In attendance: Greg, JT, Paige, Jessica, Dan, Ian, Megan B., Dave B., Jenny

President’s Report (Greg):  “Alrighty!”

*Things are starting to pick-up on musicians contacting us, since the BBLV seems to be slowing down on Jamband bookings. We need to secure a variety of venue locations since the SandDollar has been our ‘direction’ when we’re contacted.  (More details in Production Report)

Vice President’s Report (JT):

*New Business Cards for Jenny M. & Megan B. are here with ‘write-on’ ability.

*BBLV gave us a list of the upcoming member-comp tickets:  George Clinton & P-Funk, Tower of Power, Thievery Corporation, Tauk & Jazz is Phish. (We will ask about Xavier Rudd)

* A new website (perks.com) is a way for groups to get ‘credits’ for using everyday things.  It is a link that would go to our website.  Unsure if there is a fee, so we will look into it and have a meeting to decide if it would benefit our group.

Treasurer’s Report (Paige): 

*The 2nd Quarter SMITH’S give back gave us $29.79.

*Dues are now ‘monthly’ payments.  $10/month.

* Don’t forget that attending monthly meetings can get you $5 credits for the next year’s dues.  (up to $20max).  Attendance is noted each month and an email is sent your way each December, letting you know the needed dues to keep current.

*Be sure to add your SMITH’S GROCERY card and your AMAZONSMILES account, to the ‘Jam Band Society of America’ non-profit help, to ensure a portion of your purchases comes back our way!  Tell your friends/family!  (We will look into posting an ‘easy’ ‘click here’ link for others to get started.)

Secretary’s Report (Jessica): 

* *August event:  JERRY DAY, The 9th Annual Meet up at the Movies:  Giants Stadium, June 17, 1991 will be at select theaters on August 1st.  Shown at two theaters this time:  Southpoint & Village Square.

*Discussion of a possible LVJBS Holiday Party with SHREAD IS DEAD (once played at Hard Rock’s Vinyl) which now has a new line-up:  Todd Stoops (RAQ, John K. band), Jay Lane (Ratdog, Primus) & Jay Burwick (RAQ).  Greg to meet with The SandDollar’s Jameon to look into costs/details.
