WEEC Event Planning
5/7/2019, 2:30 PM 3:30 PM

Minutes from last meeting below:

The To: list met today and discussed the upcoming event. The following was decided/reviewed:

• Facility prep list – assigned to Michele H. and is in progress
• WEEC lobby prep – assigned to Todd H. and Tammy G. and is in progress (need to add PIA to sign and add PIA samples, new IVL sites to globe)
• Tshotskies – Tammy G. is working on getting a small gift for attendees. Considerations include a recycled PET bag with a recycled PET rain gauge inside. Other possibilities include a potted plant, squirrel or bird feeder. Decided to use WEEC logo rather than having three logos on the item.
• Food/Drink – Kris is working on getting WEEC logo’ed cookies. May have to settle for other options if this isn’t feasible.
• Invitation list – Penny provided the proposed invitation list. The numbers are pretty large but some of the members are duplicates which would reduce the numbers. The decision was made to do the invitations in tiers. If the initial response of RSVPs is poor then consider sending the second Tier. The tentative list is below:
