Nancy Carpenter asked that all the surveys we have received be scanned in and emailed to her.
Advertising was discussed – because the Chamber has no funds for advertising – it was suggested that we offer in-kind memberships to the papers and local radio in exchange for advertising.
It was proposed that Tamne Robinson Contact KXNM and the Independent because of her contacts and with no contacts at Mountain View Telegraph with no contacts that Nancy contact them and see what the Chamber and the Telegraph could work out for advertising.
Bert Almy stated that he and Julie Albright talked and their suggestion to gain new members would be to have each person ( it was unclear if it was chamber member or board members only) contact 6 people per month and work to try to bring in 6 new members per month. Discussion was tabled to be returned to after bylaws were addressed.
It was announced that Dave Tixier would be hosting a March event at Mags Indoor Shooting Range.
It was discussed that the bylaws and other basic policies and regulations be addressed at a later special meeting so that the new board has a firm foundation to build the Chamber on. No date was set as the meeting had to be adjourned at 2pm due to the facility having another commitment for the building. Minutes respectfully submitted by Tamne Robinson, Secretary
