St. Cloud Out - Meeting Minutes

May 8, 2008

Present: Jerry, Joe, Gabi, Brandi, Thomas, and Shawn

Secretary's Report:

  1. Motion to approve by Gabi seconded by Jerry and approved by all.

Treasurer's Report:

  1. $3359.38 in account.
  2. We deposited $2346.50 and spent $2930.11.
  3. For the film fest in particular there was an income of $2346.50 and expenses of $2855.11. There are still a few outstanding deposits and expenses.
  4. Comp tickets were a little out of hand this year. Next year we should print up actual comp tickets.
  5. Essentially we lost $500 on the Film Fest. We bought an ad in Up Next and we had fewer committee members to solicit donations.
  6. So next year – more people in the seats, more people on the committee and would like the Up Next cover.

Funding/Grants/Fundraising Committee Report:

  1. We need an Advisory committee meeting to carry on the 501(c)3 process. A pro bono lawyer to help us through the legalities would be wonderful.

Film Fest Committee Report:

  1. Overall it was good. A few committee members said they got more thanks.
  2. There were around 125 people there on Sunday.
  3. We would like some sort of culminating event to stay connected with the For The Bible Tells Me So folks. An informal picnic/potluck at Lake George was suggested. They did a great job and we would like to keep the connections. Email them.
  4. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE ON THE COMMITTEE. We drafted an email to send out to the list. The email should include : thank you for coming, we need volunteers to find and screen films, raise funds and for publicity, experience not required, we will start in September.
  5. Brandi has started a Wiki for us to use to share information about Film Fests past and present. It should be very helpful when we are meeting. She shared codes for all of us to access it.
  6. We also have two video to donate to the library. Outing Riley was sent to us by mistake and they said to keep it and we get to keep our copy of East Side Story.
