11/08/06

  • We are going to discuss a new subject ­ "Coordinators". As you know, during the '06 WHLA EAFW, we gave some folks the role of leading a function and letting them make the decisions and be responsible for all parts of that area. (Ex. Dan Babcock ­ "Sales", Jonathan Cowan ­ "Cafe"). The Board felt this methodology worked well and would like to extend the same concept to the Foundation overall. Are there areas or "departments" within ToFF that could make use of this concept (Ex. Archiving, Permanent Collection, Publicity, Grants, Webmaster, Salon Evenings, etc.) ?

11/02/06 — Durk

  • The pros and cons of the fair, all the key volunteers will be heavily invited to be there and also others who are potentials for getting deeper involved with the foundations programs and operations. ex. several archive volunteers to lead that area, the permanent collection area, publicity, special event coordinators, and so yes what ideas do you fellows and gals have for other areas. then lets get the formal invitations out to them so they dont think its a laid back type issue. So we'll deal with the fair , and a bit of a seminar on what we want to offer these individuals.
  • Lunch will be served and we shall reconvene and so by 3pm it concludes to be followed after a break with a two hour board meeting with Louie in attendence and also possibly Mark Nelson if we can give him notice right away.
