Board Meeting Minutes
One Stop Office
Meeting started late due to fatality on freeway and traffic being backed up.
Angie emailed said she was sick and wouldn’t attend.
Bob Jones called said he couldn’t get through due to the traffic.
Bert Alma, Tamne Robinson, Nancy Carpenter, and Julie Albright were in attendance.
Meeting started approximately 12:15
Nancy began with addressing her letter to go out to the members concerning new board and other upcoming information that chamber is addressing to members
Briefly addressed big event in spring, ideas to bring in new members, types of events that need to be held, etc. These things were tabled until the January event is complete.
It was decided by chamber members present that the Networking event would be catered and paid for by Bert Almy. It would be held at Los Vecinos on January 23rd from 5-7pm.
The amount of food that we would need to be provided and the cost to mail out a postcard to invite all East Mountain Businesses will be on hold until Bert Almy was able to get a mailing list of all east mountain businesses in Tijeras, Cedar Crest, Sandia Park, Edgewood and Moriarty. Once we have that list we will have an exact cost to mail out invites and approximate food amount to be provided so that we can obtain a quote from local member vendors to provide food for the event.
We briefly discussed doing a survey to each chamber member. Nancy was going to get ahold of Bob Jones who made the offer at last Chamber meeting to put a survey together and follow up with him.
When survey is finished chamber will go over and see if we need to add change or delete anything on it.
Some of the topics Chamber would like to know is:
Who do we contact from the businesses that can make decisions about helping with events.
How do they want to be contacted? Email, phone or letter, or personal contact
What days would be better for them to be able to attend meetings/or events?
Olivia Counts from One Stop Office will make face to face contact with each business member to complete survey.
Board meeting ended with members in agreement to have next meeting at:
One Stop Office on Thursday December 10 (when Bert will be in town) at 11:30.
