PSNW Officer's Meeting Minutes, October 3, 2017

Public Speaking Northwest Club 9406
Club Executive Officer’s Meeting Minutes October 3, 2017
I. Call to order
Janell Farnsworth called to order the regular meeting of the Public speaking Northwest at 10:45 on October 3, 2017 at North Creek Office Center in Bothell, WA.
II. Roll call
Janell Farnsworth conducted a roll call. The following persons were present: Lynn – Sgt at Arms, Jean –Vp Education, Uliana – Secretary, Hilary – Treasurer, Nancy VP Public Relations, Julie – VP Membership
III. Approval of minutes from last meeting
Janell Farnsworth read the minutes from the last meeting. The minutes were approved as read.
IV. Open issues
a) Janell – discussion about the rules and purpose for the drawing. Will be held each month, used to encourage attendance. Must be present to win. Names are put in bag each meeting and then emptied after drawing.
b) Hilary – training all officers on the membership form. Having a sample and the pro-rated charts available.
V. New business
a) Lynn – discussion of improving the room, adding a better flag for the Pledge of Allegiance
b) Jean – Halloween meeting as a leadership opportunity, need people in charge of food, decorations, PR, who will be Toastmaster? Should we encourage dressing up? Jean will do Table Topics
c) Uliana- made a suggestions that evaluation slips/ballots should include names so that if the writing is illegible or if a comment is not understood the speaker can ask for clarification, that negative comments are okay if they are for improvement purposes. Suggested using videos of speakers as part of promotion on social media. Need to get permission and also remember purpose of the videos is for the speaker to improve, not necessarily for PR.
d) Hilary – Treasurer’s report for August 2017 given. Report prepared for club reader board. Expenditures for needed replenishment of ribbons and ballots are approved, prizes for drawings will be discussed with Janell and approved by all officer’s at next meeting. Question arose about what to do with members who still attend, but failed to renew their membership (pay dues). It is determined that they cannot compete or represent the club until they renew.
e) Nancy – suggested use of NextDoor online platform to advertise to community. Also placing the meeting notes on the website versus Facebook. Facebook posts with people tagged should receive permission first. Also suggested that the club website blog be updated for 2017. Nancy has updated many items an taken proactive steps to get our club noticed.
VI. Adjournment
Janell Farnsworth adjourned the meeting at 11:25.
Minutes submitted by: Janell Farnsworth
