August MI Council Meeting

Posted By Linda D. Gerke, Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Council Director Email to Members

Spread your wings and FLY!

We determine each day how much flying we will do, how wide we will spread our wings, or how much risk we will encourage.

Looking ahead to July 1, 2010 – I'd like to ask all of you to think ahead and plan regarding a key part of my year as Director. The August Council meeting will be held here at the hotel, on August 7th, with the core of the meeting being individual training sessions for each local office or chair. Anita is working on actual training sessions. Each person will be able to attend only 1 session. If you are secretary, you would attend the secretary session for example. If you are legislation, you would attend the legislation session. The training will be tightly compacted, very worthwhile and would also give you a small group support team.

The day's plan would be for coffee, tea and a limited selection of morning treats and a box lunch for $15.00 per person. We will also be working out possible housing options for folks who may need to come in Friday late afternoon or evening to attend a 9 am Saturday session. Barb Burke has already offered to house someone. If you are a hotel person, we have worked out a special price ($99/room) with the Lexington. My goal is to make this as inexpensive as possible for each of us. It would be great to have an entire board of the association able to attend together and plan on the way home.

If you have specific suggestions for any of the positions, please forward those comments. Share this invitation with your new local association officers and chairs.
