Executive Director Update:  

♢We have solidified a partnership with KMOJ Radio. We are capturing some of their broadcasts in exchange for airtime for some of our PSAs and event outreach. This has already begun, and the video capture will become a training for ambassadors as soon as details are worked out.  

♢We finished this year’s Open Streets events and will be making suggestions for next year’s locations based on our experience. All in all, great events, and good content for the channels. A good ROI for the outreach, content creation, and branding assistance received from the event.

♢Kicking off Wednesday night Tech Presentations. These serve as both content creation and training hours for attendees/members. Should be a good way to provide training opportunities for more people, while providing excellent content for our channels.  

♢Working on more event scheduling in the space. Quite a few scheduled over the next month. Capacity for way more if people in the network are in need.  Our space is our greatest asset, and we now have a system in place to make it work smoothly.  

♢Early November will be attending the MCAD internship fair. Good response from the school itself, and now, we will present to the student body.

♢Spoken word event at the end of November. An ask to have board help push that out to networks for both talent and attendees.

No public commentary.

Meeting adjourned at 6:47pm.
