Many members were unable to attend the WMCB meeting on 6-19-08 because the door to the building at 393 Main St was inadvertently locked shortly after 6:30pm. To avoid this issue for the time being, the next meeting will be held on July 3 6:30pm at the Winterland Club on Hope St.
Fortunately, we were able to hold a productive meeting, especially in regards to fund raising. Tom Roulston has joined Penny Ricketts as co-chair of the fund raising subcommittee. He has a wealth of experience in operating a non-profit theater company in the Boston area for more years than I have fingers and toes.
It was decided that we needed to create a membership form which would allow us to streamline our data collection, and communication with members. Members already in our data base should expect to receive an email in the future regarding this issue.
Training is proceeding in the studio, though we are experiencing a bottle neck in preproduction. Lance Smith is working on this problem.
Jim Hannigan has been unable to work on sound proofing the studio recently due to health issues, but he reports that he is much improved, and will be moving full steam ahead.
As expected, some members are dropping out due to time constraints, while we continue to pickup new recruits every week. Members have not yet been asked to pay their yearly dues, and we are still working on a system to tabulate volunteer hours and activities.
In essence, we are still finding our way, and I would like to express my gratitude to all of you who have been working to make community radio a vibrant reality in Greenfield.
