Ruth announced that she and Barb attended a grant writing workshop to learn the ins and outs of applying for monies available to non-profit organizations. They learned that a non-profit needs to be at least 3 years old in order to apply for grants.
Jim advised that Cindy Einhouse, director and president of the Beck Center, would like to attend a LIA meeting and partner with us in the future. Ennifer Deslilet would like to join LIA and as an experienced fundraiser, her talents would be useful to our organization. DL Mekas also interested in becoming a member and brings experience in artwalks and working with art foundations. Jim mentioned that the LIA email list sign up was changed to ask if subscriber would be interested in volunteering, if they are an artist & type of art they produce, if applicable.
Ruth brought up the MAMA LIA artwalk event and asked what everyone heard about it, Jim heard comments that it was better than Tremont and Jill said she only heard good things. Barb said that the MAMA meeting attendees were all happy with the outcome. Everyone felt that business was generated by the event.
Jill Crino updated the board on the new logo. Jill provided samples of logo on letterheard and business cards. Everyone agreed the logo was ideal and that pure white background should be used on the cards and letterhead as opposed to off-white. New logo was approved unanimously by the board members.
It was agreed that the we would get a PO Box number to be used on the stationary and an email address of LIA@LakewoodisArt.com
. Christine will be responsible for answering emails sent to this address.

SheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have the designs for next meeting for board to vote on, then sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll build foamcore prototype prior to producing a steel prototype.
