Agenda Item Discussion Action

Past Events

Holiday Party

The speakers at the holiday party were apparently very good, but went on for a little too long.

Perhaps have only one speaker in the future, since two seemed long or 8-minute limit total for each speaker.

Professor Carter Lecture

Thirteen people attended the Professor Carter lecture. It was a great lecture and we discussed how we could get higher attendance levels.

For the lectures, maybe charge $$ for events to lock in more members, make them RSVP, create a phone tree calling people to promote, and email the Ivy Plus list (for lectures only). Perhaps set up a committee of three people in charge of getting attendance levels up. Gail will spearhead getting RSVP’s for future events.

Upcoming Events

Wine tasting at Liner Nelson. We discussed moving it to April 3 from March 20 due to more interesting Austrian wines. 2222 NW Quimby. (price $15-$30 for five samples). Starts at 5:30 (till 7:30).

We will do an RSVP for the wine tasting. John will find out what the price is.
