PROGRAM:

No speaker this month. – Group Discussion and Member Input

One thing on the agenda will be a discussion of the Blair/Rodabaugh Points. We started out with a point system that we knew would have to be reconfigured as we found how much work each job took and what would need to be added or deleted. Please take some time to look over the attached copy of our current point system and think about what you might like to see added or changed. Here are some jobs/events that might be added so that new volunteers can take them and have the chance to accrue points:
• Keeper of the Points for Blair/Rodabaugh
• Image Comp Judges
• Social Media
• Officers
* Council Meetings
* Image of the Year
 
Bring your ideas for Programs, Outings, etc. so we can plan a great 2018!

In Addition


As our Main Event, we will be creating Portraits for the staff at Abigail’s. Al Knataitis, 1st VP, will be bring lights and background for the Formal sessions and Brent Walton, Section Chair, will provide the lighting for the environmental sessions. Bring your cameras and each member will be given time to work with the staff.

Any member who would like a Portrait taken is also welcome to be photographed.
