FRLC Board Meeting Minutes
Wednesday, May 10, 2017
2:00 pm MDT/3 pm CDT/1:00 pm PDT/4:00 pm EDT
Ed and Melanie were the only ones on the call, so we talked and I took notes but it wasn’t really an official meeting.
We agreed that Dave C. could represent us at the ELCA Rostered Leaders Gathering in Atlanta. He has gotten the ok to have an FRLC “Affinity Group” at the event. He was not sure if he would be able to go. I let him know he had our “seal of approval” and asked that he let me know whether he is going or not. If anyone else is interested in representing us there (we have no funds to support you in this), please let me know.
We discussed the 2018 lay retreat. We received confirmation of the Memorandum of Agreement from Nadia Bolz-Weber’s agent:
We have received your contract. You are officially on Nadia’s schedule for April 13-14, 2018! Please find her Bio and photo attached for any of your marketing efforts.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
These dates are confirmed for the Double Tree Inn in Bloomington, MN. There is a free airport shuttle.
Nadia will be speaking Friday evening and Saturday morning. Other speakers include Don Shelby, a local newscaster in recovery, and William C. Moyers of Hazelden.
Ed and Arthur are meeting with two people at Hazelden tomorrow–the pastor who attended our retreat and their publicity person. They will be discussing vendors, networking and potential workshop leaders at the first meeting and publicity efforts through Hazelden as well as the church at the second. Ed prepared a first draft brochure to help our partners understand what we are doing, which is attached below. Please note that the schedule for the speakers in the brochure is incorrect–Nadia’s time slots are as described above.
Joy has the information to access the website to work on publicity also.
The local retreat committee will be meeting next week, on May 18.
We adjourned our meeting around 2:30 pm Mountain time.
Next meeting: June 7, 2017 2:00 pm MDT/2 pm CDT/1:00 pm PDT/3:00 pm EDT 12:00 pm
