March 22 Meeting Notes

Attendance: Karen Albert, Kim Durand, Pat Koepsel, Joe Lott, Elizabeth Schindler, Khalid Sirij, Mark Whitenton, Harro Wulf

Database updates – Karen will work with Elizabeth and other members to keep and maintain an updated membership database.
Elizabeth made several personal reaches to groups about their membership who have responded very favorably.  The Arlington Sister City has joined and the Salvation Army is considering it.  The calls really make a difference. 
Other folks are assisting:
Ed is talking to the Elks
Elizabeth is reaching out to the Masons and Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment
Khalid will reach out to the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars
Joe will contact the Rotary Club of Rosslyn
We talked about reaching out to former and current members first and then look into the broader community to see who else we should invite to join.
Meeting Location:
Westover Library with a speaker every other month.
Karen mentioned a possible speaker for our April meeting – someone from Main Street Bank to talk about a widget that we could place on our e-mail, website and/or blog that is similar to a “Donate Now” button.  This is something that each of our clubs could benefit from, if they’re available to give a presentation. [SPEAKER CONFIRMED!]
Blog – Kim will update blog as information is provided.
Brochure – Karen will update the flyer.
Arlington sign – Elizabeth has been working for over a year on this, but we are getting closer! Several clubs have their signs on order and once they come in, we will work with the volunteer to put the signs up.  We have decided to offer him a stipend for up to $200.00 for his time and assistance.
County Fair Advertisement – although we voted not to have a booth at the fair, we decided that we should look into advertising in the paper for the fair.  Shawn and Karen will look into that.
Clarendon Day – Kim reported that Clarendon Day is on September 28th this year.  She will look into the details and keep the ISCC informed, if we decide to participate.
Financial Report:
We are in the black with two additional memberships coming in this past month.  Karen will give us a complete list of paid memberships at the next meeting.
