July 24, 2010
10 members attended

Galen heads the meeting in Dandee’s absence. This meeting we will need a decision for visiting artists that will be brought in for the fall and spring. There have been issues of scheduling conflicts and no artists have confirmed any dates. We need 3 alternatives for fall and spring, a potter for spring and a sculptor for fall. Potter will most likely be alumni.

Sarah T. volunteers to be the liaison for Stephanie Lanter.

Jon B. suggests that that we may be breaking H.O.T. rules by re-voting completely rather than going with the runner up from a previous meeting.

We should have the artist here September or October on a Thursday and a Friday. The group offers $1500 and we do not cover travel.

Charlie states that in the past if all artists declined we have cancelled the visiting artist for that semester.

Galen O. Motions to table the potters for spring until the next meeting
Jon B. seconds the motion
Vote is unanimous

Galen O. states that we are thinking about doing t shirt designs, and an official hot clay cup for the pottery sales. We have ideas to do new things in an attempt to bring in more revenue. Sarah T. suggests having a cup or mug sale with a free coffee or tea drink in their new cup. It was suggested that we have 50 cups at ten dollars a piece. Is there a rule that you cannot serve food? You cannot sell anything that is not prepared in a commercial kitchen.

Jon suggests that all the members have a shirt that promotes the club and there is a contest of the design. Everyone would wear the shirts out on outings and it will promote our club. The mission says that we promote hot clay in the community. Charlie C. suggests to discuss this at the next meeting.

Meeting ends at 12:00
