We’re Ba-a-a-a-a-ak! Did you miss us?
had our first Council meeting of the year in the community room in the new Zehrs in Guelph. The room was really nice; it has a full kitchen, and lots of room to spread out. They supply the food and everything, so it looks like, depending on availability, that’s where you’ll find us on the third Tuesday of every month.
The first order of business was introducing ourselves and giving out one piece of information about ourselves that no one else knows.
Did you know that…
Sorry, we couldn’t get anything out of Lori except that she read a newspaper article that says 4% of men are raising someone else’s children and don’t know it. Huh?
After that, we discussed our goals for the year, at the Chapter level and at the Portfolio level.
At the Chapter level:
We really want to increase awareness of the STC in the community, improve communication both inside and outside our chapter, and hopefully break even. Pretty down to earth goals. We discussed the possibilities of a few contests, fund-raising events, promotional giveaways, among other things.
At the Portfolio level:
The council members spoke about the goals they had set for their particular portfolio. Everyone is pretty enthusiastic about increasing membership, getting more people out to the meetings, providing new functionality on our website, getting really cool speakers…whew, it’s going to be a busy year…
So don’t be shy and come on out, the pizza’s great.
