Democratic Club of Cape Coral
Saturday, February 21, 2015
The meeting was called to order at 1:05 p.m. by President Kay Nichols with quorum present. We went around the table and introduced ourselves and especially so first time visitors knew who we were and vice versa.
The Secretary, Sharon Davies, was unable to provide January minutes but indicated they would be forwarded before the February meeting.
Mary Ann Ferrarese presented the current treasury report. No questions were raised so Pat Trotter moved that the report be accepted as was, it was seconded by Sharon Davies and was accepted unanimously.
Sharon Davies presented a 5 minute training session defining commonly used acronyms and did a short lesson on making phone calls. She provided responses to questions like why we’re calling so early by saying we have a lot of folks to call in Cape Coral and if we started early we might be able to contact all Democrats by Nov 2016. Other seasoned phone bankers also shared their experiences suggested using “I” followed by reasons they are calling. More sessions will be held in the future.
A discussion was then held about recruiting new members and making a list of possible events we could be present at. Sharon Davies is going to check out the Annual Dunbar Parade and the Lehigh Acres Founder Day parade.
A lively discussion was then held regarding our web site and other electronic media. Tim Hawes thought we needed to stop talking about it and take action. Patrick Collins moved that a committee be formed with Tim Hawes, Winston Negron, and Samantha to bring ideas forward for consideration and vote by the membership. The motion was seconded by Pat Trotter and carried by unanimous vote.
There being no other business, the meeting was adjourned at 2:21.
Sharon Davies, Secretary
