Yumi mentioned that Doris Scott wanted to know what we are doing about advertising for the Used Book Sales. Jerry volunteered to look into it. He will see about renewing older outlets and finding new ones.
Yumi can't work at the membership desk on Fridays of the Used Book Sale any longer. Asked for volunteers. Other members volunteered for the time being.
Millie informed board about problems with Friends computer which she uses for accounting. Yumi volunteered to take it to Best Buys. Board approved.
Membership renewal to San Pedro Chamber of Commerce for $144 approved by board.
Doris wanted to know if there were more membership envelopes. Board advised to contact Sir Speedy in Torrance who may have our originals. Board discussed the different membership categories and whether life member should be raised to $150. Board defeats suggestion.
Georgia read letter of resignation from Sandy Clayson. Sandy explained that running these events was very demanding mentally and physically. After listening to what she had to say, board realized that she was trying to run the events entirely by herself. She did not realize that certain functions were almost always carried out by the same board member for each of the events. Board asked her to reconsider and reassured her that all she had to do was to work with the performers. She consented. Board was relieved she did not resign.
Next meeting May 28th at 6:00 p.m. Public invited.
