We will meet Saturday, November 9 starting at 10am at The Meadows Conference Center, 2900 Live Oak Street, Dallas. This will be an important end-of-year business meeting, and I encourage everyone to attend. This will be our final meeting of 2019.
Several people have already stepped up to fill rolls for next year. Dan Green will take over education planning Li-Ya Mar and Jeff Lu will be administrators for Facebook in addition to the work they have been doing on Instagram. Karen Magruder will take over as membership chair and will continue her work doing the LiveStream of our meetings.
Kelly Longfellow will continue to head up events planning, and Sharon Dennis will continue as chapter secretary and also as our go-to person for action on the west side of the metroplex.
But we need people for the following:
Monthly meeting planning. [Developing a good series of presenters and getting things arranged for successful meetings is really important work to keep the chapter going]
Chapter Treasurer [We have $0 as a chapter right now, but the national office is promising that we will soon have a bank account; and we will need a treasurer.]
Presentation Venue Development [Members are interested in giving more presentations but aren’t always successful in finding interested groups and organizations. We need someone to work on finding venues]
Publicity [Just what the title suggests]
Don’t want to take on leadership of a committee but have some time to devote to work on behalf of the chapter? We need 1 or 2 people who can spend an hour or two a week on membership to assist the chair of that committee. The same goes for event planning, meeting planning, presentation venue development, & publicity. A committee chair needs a committee with members who can give the work a little time each week!
If you can’t attend the meeting but are interested in doing some chapter-related work in 2020, please let me know.
