COMMITTEE REPORTS

Education – Teressa Eades & Tynette Lynch

Gowers announced that presentation of our $500 check to the Hewitt Trussville High School Culinary Team was very informal.  They were very appreciative.  She posted a photo on our Facebook page, and it will also be seen on the school’s website

 

Communications/PR – Chris Nelson

Nelson announced that Nick Kopp of Reviewusalabama.com walked him through the process of creating QR codes for our meeting surveys.  We will have one code that will remain the same each month.  Although there’s no charge for us, Kopp charges about $100 a month for similar surveys.  Nelson will create enough cards, one per table.  They can be placed on stands.  Grady volunteered to laminate them.

 

Golf Tournament – Jennifer Gowers

More teams, sponsors, and prizes are needed.  Each board member was encouraged to contact at least four people this week and next week.  All took a few minutes to jot down those names and read their list to everyone. 

 

Gowers will get a cover letter from the alumni association to go along with our fliers.  She was informed that twenty-two blind veterans want to play.  Annette Scarborough of Hyatt Place Inverness has volunteered to provide snacks and bottled water. 

Membership - Renee Deason & Mairs Baxter

Annette Scarborough, Director of Sales of the Hyatt Place Inverness, is our newest member.  Rony Naik of the Best Western Carlton renewed.  Certificates will be presented to both today.

 

 

OLD BUSINESS

Gowers reported she’s waiting to hear from Cristina Almanza as to whether or not she wants to accept our offer to serve on the board.  Rhonda Ball will be asked to submit an official written resignation.
