Planning/Strategy Meeting

  • Jun 29, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Committee formation/volunteers:
Fundraising - volunteer chair? _________________
Committee members: __________, _________, ______
Outreach/Education - volunteer chair? ______________
Committee members: Randy P., __________, _______
Charitable - volunteer chair? __________________
Committee members: ________, _________, _________

Ideas for anything specific should be submitted directly to those committee chairs, who will then funnel the details to their committees for further research.

My first submission will tie all of these committees together, but I think only one should take charge of it: 

A screening of a Freethought movie at a local movie theater to support the International Freethought Film Festival. They are seeking participants who can secure a movie theater for a satellite screening. This will be in November.

Any last buzz about the billboards? 

A $440 donation was sent to FFRF - I asked Randy P. and Sam S. if they would be willing to give up the $20 they each paid for t-shirts to this cause, and they graciously agreed, since nothing was happening with the shirts.

    Excellent meeting! I am excited about our committees which I'm sure will grow since not everyone willing to help was there. Thank you to Suzy for hosting. I'd also be happy to host a meeting of that size, if the group wants to come to Lakewood in the future.

    Thank you to everyone attending the meeting last night! We have accomplished so much, since this group was first formed, and together we will keep moving forward!

      Thank you Suzy. You are a wonderful hostess.

    Can't make the meeting but am interested in serving on the Outreach/Education committee.

    2 · June 26, 2014

    • Lisa M.

      I would all so like to be on the Outreach/Edu. Committee with you Randy.

      June 29, 2014

    Can't make this time, either. As a reminder, I'm open to serve on committees, but would not have time to chair one.

    1 · June 26, 2014

  • Roni & Elliott B.

    We can't make it, out of town family coming in.

    June 25, 2014

  • Lisa M.

    Still hope T-shirts are on the list, I am asking Ron about them he mentioned he could try to get them at a much lower cost. I would like to be on a committee, not sure yet which one yet maybe the Outreach/Education -& Fundraising

    1 · June 2, 2014

    • Marni H.

      Yes, we should definitely get Ron's final numbers if possible. I don't know if he's going to be able to make the meeting, but it would be nice to see the figures, so that we can discuss how many we want to purchase, and whether we should sell different types of designs or just use them for tabling, volunteering, etc.

      1 · June 2, 2014

    • Suzy W.

      I am all for Tshirts too and most likely would want to be also on the Outreach/Education Committee, however, I do not want to be the Chair/Leader.

      June 25, 2014

  • Marni H.

    Due to some scheduling conflicts, I need to change the time to 7:00pm.

      I cannot make this time, so I'll watch for meeting notes.

      June 2, 2014

  • Marni H.

    Once we have committees established, I think we should hold committee meetings. I'm more than happy to be the liaison for them, and will be at each meeting, if I can.

    2 · May 20, 2014

    • Marni H.

      Once a month is my suggested timetable.

      May 27, 2014

    • Marni H.

      But of course I'll leave that up to the Committee Chairs :)

      May 27, 2014

  • Roni & Elliott B.

    We will help on any committees that need help. We could even have a meeting at our house sometime. But not on June 29th, that's when all our kids are coming to town.

    • Marni H.

      LOL, thanks for volunteering, Roni. Say hi to the clan for us! :)

      May 27, 2014

  • Randy P.

    Will part of the mandate of the Outreach Committee be public education about church/state separation? If so I am willing to be a member of this committee. I am interested in us organizing workshops and performing other educational outreach activities aimed at public officials.

    1 · May 26, 2014

    • Sam S.

      Your ideas sound essential for this organization. And for the future of secular humanism. You have my vote. What can I do to help?

      1 · May 26, 2014

    • Marni H.

      Yes, I wholeheartedly agree. The outreach committee maybe should read "Outreach/Education­" committee. I love the idea of workshops, too.

      2 · May 27, 2014

  • Sam S.

    I am asking for three people to step up to the plate and head one of these chairs that Marni has posted. I will be more than happy to work with each volunteer. So that makes me a member of each committee. But not a chair. We can accomplish a whole lot more as a group if we have someone to chair these committees. I would also like to ask Randy Pelton if he would chair a state/church watchdog committee for our group, of which I would gladly help also.

    Finally, I am asking Marni to commit this next meet up to developing these committees so we can move our society to a more organized future.

    Thank you all Sam
