Dear Officers,

I haven't received many comments or discussion on the issues below, which I sent last week.  I think Ian is the only one who sent a response.  Please let me know your opinions, especially on issues #1. #2, and #4 below.  

As for item #5, the date that works for the club that is relocating to 1455 Market is Dec 17, so I am thinking we should just have our end of year holiday celebration that day, and have a catered lunch here at 1455 Market St - what do you think of that idea?  Dec 17 will then be our last UWS meeting of the year (and I will be on vacation for the rest of the year).  What do you think???

Subject: [Unitedwespeakofficers] UWS officer "meeting" via email

Dear Fellow Officers -

1.  We need to select our end of year awards:
     - Star Award
     - Newcomer Award
     - Event of the Year

(a) Should we, as officers, select the recipients?  
(b) Or should we select "nominees," and let the club membership vote for the recipients? 
(c) Or some other method?


2. I intend to "poll" our membership via email regarding meeting participation. 
My end goal is to get more participation in meetings...

I will ask such questions as:
a) What would be the best day of week and time for us to have our meetings?
b) What are your goals in Toastmasters, and how can we help you achieve them?

What other questions should I ask our general membership and alumni????
Do you have any other suggestions???


3. I have committed our club to operate the "Fishing Booth" at the Childrens
Holiday party this year.  I believe Kalla started this tradition, and the fishing
booth is very popular with the kids.  I believe the date of the childrens holiday
party is Sunday, Dec 6, in the cafeteria space on the 9th floor at 1455 
Market St.  Decorating and set up will be on Sat. Dec 5.  I need volunteers
to spend a couple of hours on Saturday or Sunday for this event.  It is fun
and rewarding.  Please let me know if you will be able to help out for an
hour or two.  (I will also be sending this message out to the entire club.)


4. We need to finalize our roster of officers for next year.
So far, I have:

co-presidents:  Ian Crane & Randy Freeman
VP PR:  
VP Ed: 
VP Membership:
Treasurer:  Nicholas Theuriet
Sgt at Arms (for 315 Montgomery):  Susie Sanders-Wong
Sgt at Arms (for 1455 Market St):

As you can see I still have some empty spaces...  Who would
you recommend to fill these empty officer positions?  


4.  We have an opportunity of a B of A Toastmasters club in Oakland
joining our group at 1455 Market St.  They are being relocated to 
1455 Market St in Nov or Dec.  I am thinking we should have a
special welcome celebration for them - what do you think?
I think we still have funds for a guest speaker - who would you
like to have as a keynote speaker for an event like this?
(I think we could consider this as our event of the year...)
I still have to confirm a date.


5.  We also are coming to the end of the year and we need to 
make plans for an end-of-year/Holiday party/lunch for United
We Speak.  Please let me know your suggestions for time
and place.


6.  There will be a TBOA Knowledge Channel Broadcast on Dec 2,
8am to 9:30am.  There will be a breakfast for any member who 
wants to attend and view the broadcast at 1455 Market St starting 
at 7:30am, and probably ending around 10:00.  This is also a fun 
end of year celebration for TBOA, so try to attend if you can.
** RSVP's are required.


If you have any other club business and/or comments on any of
the above issues, please do "reply to all" so that we can all be
part of the discussion.  Let's try to wrap up any discussion and/
or decisions by Wednesday 10/27/04.

Thank you all VERY MUCH for your support as officers in United We Speak!
