October 2019 Meeting Minutes
Meeting minutes for 10/05/19
In attendance: Jeremy LaCrosse, Gabby West, Marissa Carlson, Kari Daly
Meeting started at 10:15am.
Adams Space -- Since we’ve had no response from our initial contact, Jeremy emailed the Adams town manager directly. He invited Jeremy to meet with him and Jeremy tried to follow up and schedule a meeting, but has had no response since then. Jeremy is planning on just showing up to his office hours to initiate a discussion.
Firehouse Café -- Jackie still has to connect with Mike Mach regarding next year’s schedule for the Café to see if it would work for staged readings/small performances.
Financial Update -- Gabby discovered that we’ve lost our tax exempt status. Our 990 form was revoked; turns out that we brought their attention to our lapse in filing and we lost status on Aug. 12, 2019 (the day we filed). It appears that we just need to re-file; Marissa and Gabby will handle this asap.
Gabby provided the show report for Cabaret. Net profit was $459.50.
Staged Readings -- God of Carnage took place on Thursday, Sept. 12th. Only one audience member, unfortunately. An email went out the week before. Church and State is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 29th. KD will send out an email a week before.
