Highlights of the 3rd meeting of the NVCAA in the gym at Larson School:
In spite of a venue that was difficult to get to, 45 to 50 people attended. Multiple speakers took on different topics. Attached is a copy of the presentation updated to reflect discussions. (This is a link to the presentation pdf)
A hat was passed and an impressive (considering it was unexpected and few people carry cash) $245 was collected to go to the Association’s new bank account and cover costs of future activities.
Discussions/decisions since the meeting:
Our tech advisers believe we need a Facebook page as the primary place for blogging and discussion. Website will remain the place where sign-ups are done and other resources kept.
Since posting and replying on Facebook is a single chronological stream, content will be copied to the respective ‘Issue’ page on the website where we hope to be able to accumulate a useful reference by issue.
Please visit the new Facebook page.Here is a link to it. We are going to put the initial blog posts on each issue on the Association’s Facebook page. When a discussion is more or less finished it will be copied to the website and new posts related the issue will be made in the Facebook feed first.
Next steps: 1. Work with issue moderators to create first posts. 2. Organize next meeting January 25th, location tbd. 3. Outreach for new supporters & members, particularly in demographic groups not represented. 4. Update website and initiate Facebook page
Thank you to everyone who helped out at this last meeting and afterwards.
