Meeting Start: 7:05PM
Location: Virtual via Zoom
Attendees: Johnnie T., Adam P., Paige T., Tiffany B., Jay M., Jessica G., Jenny M., Greg S., Daniel R., Mia Q.
Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie)
A. Added new officer positions to the Wild Apricot website.
B. Updated Paige’s new email to the Wild Apricot website.
C. Invoices for adjusted members’ dues were created for 2021 membership and notification sent to members.
D. Contacted Network for Good about the possibility of working with them to get more donations for LVJBS (nationally and with larger sponsors). Jeffrey Schneider is the point of contact. Looking forward to hearing more.
E. The GoogleForm Survey, regarding our live show in February, was sent out on our Wild Apricot platform and via LVJBS Facebook page had 5 respondents so far. The information was useful, but we need a larger pool of people to make an informed decision with the data. Recommend LVJBS officers post the GoogleForm Survey on our personal Facebook pages, repost on our social media accounts, etc. then reconvene once more data is gathered. So far Catfish John has been contacted to see their interest in playing our February show and we are in discussions.
Please fill out our Google Survey to give us your opinion!
Item 2: Vice President’s Report (Adam)
A. The Space is closed until January 15th. Adam will be in touch with him once it reopens to discuss more details about dates in February and continue moving forward with our plans.
B. Looking forward to a New Year in office and new opportunities!
Item 3: Treasurer’s Report (Paige)
A. We have 27 current members in LVJBS.

Item 4: Secretary’s Report (Tiffany)
A. Excited about the GoogleForm survey results so far. Also, recommend sending the survey to friends through Facebook Messenger and asking them to fill it out.

Item 6: Open Floor
A. (Mia) One of our local supporters, Mia Quinn, works at ‘The Sporting Life Bar’ (Robindale & Jones). They have upstairs space at the bar that may be a great spot for monthly LVJBS meetings. Johnnie and Paige are going to check out the space. A second location is opening up soon! They have an amazing juke box with many jamband friendly favorites, including the Dead. Come on out for a food special, a tasty beverage, and a great atmosphere! If you bring a small donation for a dog such as an old blanket or towel, you can get your first drink FREE!
