ESCO Board Meeting Minutes

April 16, 2018, 3pm
961 Taylor St., Eugene

Members present: Amey Herman, Richard Long, Eleanor Montagna, B.J. Novitski, and Alex Zunterstein

We discussed format and content options for our future concert programs. They will contain: logo, listing of pieces, player names, donors/thanks, upcoming events, history, contact info, and request for donations. Amey will work up some sample formats. It may be one page folded, maybe 8.5x14, maybe with an insert for notes about the pieces.

We set the board election for May 15. Eleanor has agreed to run for president, and B.J. for secretary/treasurer. Amey and Linda will run again as board members, and Chet Peterson and Dan Powell will be invited to run as well. Richard and Alex will continue as conductor and concert master. Others will be invited to nominate themselves. The board will prepare a slate.

No news yet about whether we’ll receive any funding from our grant application to the Springfield Arts Commission. (We subsequently learned that we did not receive any.)

We now have the go-ahead from John Hidalgo to post audio clips of our last concert on our website. BJ will ask Michael Eisenman to provide his audio files.
