6/19/17 Minutes: Questions for Robert, Tilted Scales Recap

In attendance: Jackson (secretary), Ty (moderator)

1. Event Reviews – Jude from Tilted Scales was here on Friday night. Our turnout was a bit disappointing, but it was a late-minute scheduling move and we didn’t get much time to promote it. We’re still glad we were able to meet and hear from him, and get a copy of his book for the lending library. He was paid a $100 stipend from our Speakers Treasury, as was agreed upon at last week’s meeting.

We also tried to host a reading discussion on Saturday afternoon, but it was a bust too! We did end up scheduling at the same time as a Juneteenth celebration downtown, which may have hurt us. (It was being celebrated two days early… we may need to avoid scheduling anything on this whole week of June in the future.) Jackson would like to try another one in the fall.

2. Tabling Invite – We got a mass email from Star City Pride wondering if we want to table there again this year. (We tabled there once several years ago.) We are not interested, because we are unable and unwilling to pony up $120 for that privilege.

3. Interview Questions – We finished our interview questions for Robert, and Ty emailed them out to him.

4. Putting July Events Online – We spent the rest of our meeting as work time to get our July events posted to Facebook and our website.

Meeting adjourned: 8:25 PM

Tabled items: Interview Questions for Robert, Articles for Discussion, Graphic Designer, Stuff to Buy (canopy, stuff to secure bike rack, labels, 7×7 no-slip outdoor mat for porch, new SSD hard drive for public laptop)
