Membership Report

Susie said we are at 90 members.

Social Events/Training & Development

The legislative panel presentation in February was very good with approximately 25 members in attendance. The board feels a follow up to the legislative session would be a good program to offer members. We’ll keep this on the “watch” list for an April or May event.

Other program/social event discussion:

 Progressive Dinner: Melissa feels this would be a good fall social event, and LBMAA should stick with the riverboat ride as our spring event/fundraiser. She is working with the riverboat folks on possible dates and details and will share those options with the board.

Community gardens and orchards topic: Paula will check with Peggy Netzer from NDSU Extension on a possible April professional development session.  We could meet in the Sertoma Club Community Building.

We will follow up with Nancy Guy on a session/panel discussion on current community issues in Bismarck/Mandan, including the results of the housing assessment.

A possible June session would be a tour of the new Hillside Pool in Lions Park. To be continued.

Communications & Public Relations

The next newsletter is slated for May. Possible topics could include the Distinguished Alumni award and spring events.

New Business:

Gabe will check on prices and possibilities for the National Leadership Conference.  Leadership Field Project presentations are May 14 from 8:30-Noon and Leadership graduation is May 20.


The next meeting is scheduled for April 14th at Dunn Bros.
