Jim is going to check with a contact up in Wilkes-Barre to see if there is any interest in that person pursuing the Pocono GIG.
Jim suggests an information session about board membership to talk with people who may be interested in being part of the board.
Liz will get the member survey out within the next week. Add a question to the survey would members want to see events with speakers driving the industry, provide examples, and ask people how much they would be willing to spend to attend events with these people.
Also ask how many events people want to attend in a year -- 4 quarterly events, 2 bigger events, smaller SIG based events.
Jim will set up a meeting with some prospective board members at Just Born to discuss board roles, etc. Jim will let Liz know of meeting day and time to attend. Other board members are encouraged to attend to interact with prospects, too.
