2. John’s meeting with Bonnie

PR needs some more members – non-board or board members. Rob suggested that perhaps the Finance Comm. needed more members rather than the PR     Comm.

We need more ways to get the message our that we need more money for operating funds, etc.

We need more monthly pledges to create a continual revenue stream. September is the target month for a fund drive. PR Comm. will get the word out re: this.

Shelter Grand Opening Kick Off – October?

We need a monthly or bi-monthly column in NCTW re: shelter news, etc. John will write this.

Bonnie B. is the primary contact for the newspapers.
