January Share-a-Day

  • Overall The UA Share A Day was a great success: it was a most uplifting experience for all.
  • Connie was congratulated for doing an excellent job chairing the event.
  • All scholarships where used.
  • Feedback and suggestions:
    • A printed schedule of the UA Share A Day for all participants.
    • Working scholarships should be provided, so that beneficiaries help set up beforehand and clean up afterwards.
    • Educate fellow members on how to use any and all the tools of the program.
    • Raise admissions price for future events.
    • Negotiate rent and PA services with Trinity—Mike mentioned that he had communications with the Trinity Church secretary and that the rent for the space can be negotiated; Wayne will investigate
    • In order to make use of the Trinity Church PA system, we need to use their technician, for an additional fee
    • Find a different venue for future UA events
    • Some people were disappointed that the keynote speakers left right after the commitments. Maybe it would be a good idea for them to participate in the whole of the Share-A-Day.
    • Feedback from the surveys taken during the event is presented at the end of these minutes.
