·         New member s – Intro – no new members to introduce

Old Business:

1.       Marketing update – Web Page, Brochure, County News, Babble – Community Association Sign on Airport Drive, is it available for a week or 2? – Marty will need permission from members to use information on brochure and website. The committee brainstormed what else to add to the website and to the brochure. It was decided that a general timeline, meeting dates, description of what the SC2 is, a description of what SC2 is looking for in volunteers as well as how to donate will be added to the brochure and website. Adrian will write up text for brochure, Marty will add it to the design.

2.       Charitable Status – Update on potential partnership – Mike updated the committee on discussions at the last Community Association meeting regarding the possible partnership between the SC2 and the Springbrook Community Association. After reviewing the Societies act of Alberta there are 2 ways to create a partnership. The Community Association appears to be on board with the idea and we would be able to maintain autonomy in decision making and decisions over funds raised by the SC2. Bob motions to approach the community Association @ January 14th meeting to develop a partnership. Marty seconds the motion. Motion carried.

3.       Timeline – Updating the timeline for events that need to happen in the next few months – will January 17 still work for general elections? – Due to the Babble not being delivered before this meeting the turnout was not bolstered with any new members. After discussion it was decided that it may be better to postpone the general elections by 1 month and have them on the 3rd week of February instead of January. Adrian motioned to move the elections to February 21, 2013. Dwight seconded. Motion Carried. The group also reviewed the Schedule of activities and revised it. The SC2 will attend the Community Association meeting on January 14, Brochures are still to be delivered by January 17 and the Elections will be held on February 21, 2013.
