Meeting Minutes - March 31st, 2017

MEETING LOCATION: Mammoth Comics

Attending: Shannon (President), Adrean (V.P.), CJ (Secretary), Jack (Treasurer), Mac, Z, JayCee, Katy, Anthony, Samantha, Kaz

Called to order 7:01 pm

Old Business:
1. Committee Reports
a. Communications Committee (Samantha)
No updates.

b. Dark Arts Committee (JayCee)
We should try to have a banner (or an acceptable substitute) before SoonerCon.
See below for event information.

c. Fundraising Committee (Jack, Samantha)
We're looking into Nevermore Edits merchandise, including t-shirts and cups.
We're looking to reach out to the Equality Center and the library to see if we can host nonprofit donation events of some sort.
Shannon has suggested that could look into doing basket auctions (similar to Gamut's) to raise money as well.

d. Newsletter Committee (Shannon)
April 6th is the deadline to submit things! Send any articles or submissions to treasury@nvmedits.com

e. Outreach Committee (Adrean)
The next YST Outreach event is Wednesday, April 5th at 3 pm; there is a supply list on the Trello card, and there will be a lesson plan posted there tonight.
Another nonprofit that should be coming to the area soon is Still She Rises. It's composed of lawyers from New York that do pro bono work for incarcerated or recently released women helping them get legal assistance and important paperwork in order. It would be cool if we could reach out to them and see if we could help in any way.
Tulsa Women's and Children's Center is a drug treatment children that allows women to keep their children with them in treatment, and are unfortunately losing a large chunk of their budget. If we could reach out to them — either to host workshops to help people with writing advice, or sending books — it would be fantastic.
We could also look into something OYP.

f. OWFI Committee (Shannon)
We still need roughly $90 for an OWFI category sponsorship, due by April 15th.
We have confirmed our table registration for the OWFI banquets.


2. JayCee:
a. Bixby
SoCon is at the South County Recreation Center on September 16th.; $30 for 8x8 table, $35 by 10x10 table; we will apply early for a 10x10 table.

b. SoonerCon
We're in! $110 registration fee is due April 29th and pays for two tickets, though we may be able to get more tickets at a discounted rate; the convention is June 23rd-25th in Midwest City.

c. Imaginary Worlds (Norman)
By next week we'll need to discuss who's attending and transportation.

No new business.
