Shoshanna Cohen & Katy Asher from NECN. Katy@necoalition.org.
They were on hand to let us know about their availability to assist us in improving/strategizing issues that plague the NA. They will return for the January board meeting to whittle down a few options that GPNA can work on over the next year. The January meeting will be a modified retreat. Some of the ideas: a "blog page for GPNA", a "Facebook" page, neighborhood activities, coordinating with other NA's to minimize expenses/volunteer time etc. NECN has a 1.5 day seminar for local leadership on 11/12-13, 2010.
Geoff is still trying to finalize/clarify our non-profit status.
No change from last month. Balance still at $5,452.97
Katie established the newsletter time line for the next issue.
Geoff has been contacted by a person who will speak at the next General meeting on High Speed rail.
Meeting adjourned at 8:25
