Agenda Item

  • Call to order

  •        VP Reports
  • Treasurer - Dave
  • Financial condition continues to be very solid. TT income coming in, expenses come later as usual. Good progress on getting expenses recorded near the event time.
  • Membership - Alan
  • 987 total members
  • Race Operations - Pattric
  • Good event at Best Dam Run. Some more mktg would help it get even more participants. This year was about 600, as was last year.
  • Blue Lake registrations about 100 at this point.
  • Turkey Trot registrations going well and ahead of last year’s income at this point.
  • Greenway Trail Trial went OK. More volunteers necessary.
  • Marketing - Margo
  • Two new ORRC members for a marketing committee. Paul Braghero and Brandi Tarrel.
  • Discussed concept of ORRC Ambassadors to do communications and marketing work for the club - promoting club membership and our events at our events and other venues. Maybe 20 people in total to help the club “spread the word”.
  • Possible messaging in newsletter around member benefit of the month: e.g. extra discount at RRS for the month of October; Chipotle “goodie”, etc.
  • Communications - Stephanie
  • Twitter feed will be used in the future just for posting “announcements”. Not as manageable/valuable as Facebook.
