Committee Reports

Social Events/Training & Development

September 16 – Annual Meeting and election of officers. There was a question of when to ask a current graduate to attend and what the term is. Susie will email members the list of openings and terms.

The Riverboat social held May 23 was very nice. There was discussion on holding it on a Thursday versus a Friday in 2015. LBMAA made about $650, compared to the $1100 that is generated from the Holiday Social Silent Auction. Melissa and Robin Thorstensen plan to meet and discuss a possible fall fundraiser. The group feels whether there is/isn’t a fundraiser shouldn’t stop our association from having further speakers and having members pay or partially pay for the program.

Communications & Public Relations – Jennifer

Jenn was unable to attend. She sent a request to board members via email earlier in the day asking for newsletter content ideas. Paula will get back to her with the group’s suggestions.

Old Business

                        Strategic Focus for 2014-15: Susie will talk with Kelvin about this.  

Melissa moved that there be no July meeting and that the group meet again on August 5th. Paula seconded. Motion passed.

New Business

Fall event ideas include a tour of the new penitentiary, tour of the new elementary school, a morning (or lunch) chat with the mayors of Bismarck and Mandan and a showcase of new businesses with perhaps a tie-in to the new downtown businesses.   

Next Meeting – 11:45 a.m., Tuesday, August 5 at 11:45 at Mandan Diner (former Mandan Drug).
