Attendee introductions

Increasing Membership Discussion

  • Discussion

Tim and Lucas requested non-member list to contact some of them to see if they would like to join MAPE.

Increase MAPE communications – perhaps a virtual bulletin board. Amy Fowler will update the bulletin board at Normandale.

Are there visible communication boards on other local sites?

Increase membership conversations before the contract vote – because only members can vote on the contract.

Plan the summer picnic

Need volunteers/other ideas for local activities such as happy hour?

Do we have volunteers to host the summer picnic? Volunteers need to pick a location, plan activities, plan for food, etc.

James Riley agreed to sit on the committee if others join him.
