Next AGM & membership drive:

Invitation to be sent to Rick Chiarelli (our City Councillor) to speak at AGM (- action Marjorie).
Potential conflict for Mr. Chiarelli due to pending Municipal Election.

City representative(s) to be invited to speak on future plans for Merivale Road north & south as well as Baseline Road (transit etc.). (- action Marjorie).

City Forestry rep will also be invited to speak on the status of the Emerald Ash Borer (- action Steve).

Banner pricing received by Dave and circulated to board members via e-mail. Pricing judged as ‘good’. Banner format and content discussed. It was decided to invite banner supplier to submit a design proposal and board would assess. We may need to hire a design shop if submission judged as ineffective.
Banner locations still somewhat under discussion.

CPCA membership table to be setup in Greenlawn Park during Company of Fools theater presentation.
Staffing TBD. Rob suggested that we might ask Fools if they could somehow incorporate a few adlib lines into the play to address our membership drive.

Rob to ask Dave to create an advertisement on the CPCA web site for two positions. One position would be for 1 or 2 people to survey residents regarding CPCA membership. Mike is to ask or old post man, Gord, if he might be interested in the job since we want to focus our efforts on Copeland Park West and he lives in that area.
The second position is for a volunteer to operate as an Event Planner. The job would involve the investigation and possible arranging of such activities as golf tournaments, CHIP program, garage sale, theatre in the park, etc.

Web-site – Some discussion around whether we should restrict access to registered members. Have a members and non-members access area. No decision made.

Financial: FCA membership $30.00 (Marjorie re-elected to FCA Board).
Hall rental (St. Basil’s) $100.00
Hall insurance $?

Next Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 1465 Baseline, Suite 603 (Marjorie’s abode).
