At our December board meeting we had a presentation by Janelle Fields who is an interactive marketing expert. In the future, we may be expanding our fan base by using the World Wide Web using various methods of communication including twitter, facebook, and blogging. At the meeting, Rick Moore showed us what more could be done with our website.
We have already been making plans for our show at the new SRC Arena at Onondaga Community College. Our club had a booth at an invitation only open house on December 6th. We had displays of minerals, fossils, and jewelry. Several members of our club had a chance to check out the facilities of the new building.
Some of the members of the show committee have felt that we need more dealers who sell beading and lapidary supplies. I am OK with this change. Several new dealers have been contacted and have agreed to participate in our show. One new dealer is willing to take seventeen tables in wholesale and several tables in the retail area.
Our Christmas brunch was well attended. Overall, everyone had a great time. I think it is time that we move the location of the party. If you have any suggestions regarding a new location, please contact any officer of the club. I was unable attend the Christmas brunch since my wife and I were out of town over the
The suggestion was made that I should give some additional advice on how to get to our clubhouse at Shoppingtown Mall including where to park. You should park your car in the garage and close to mall entrance number six . The parking garage is just off from the Kinne Road entrance to the mall and adjacent to the lower entrances of JCPenney and Sears. Enter the mall through entrance number six and take the escalator upstairs and walk down the hallway. Our location is to the right at the end of the hallway.
I hope to see you at our January meeting. Visitors are always welcome.
