Preparations for the March 21st Meeting

Speakers/Presentations/Printed Material - Learning objectives are still needed for the speakers Rick will contact the speakers to secure.  Dawn will finalize the invitation for the meeting by 2/22 and forward to Carrie for distribution.  Meeting will be on Avian Flu and will be held at Community General Osteopathic in Harrisburg.

PACE Credits NOVA has been working with Cindy and have asked for inclusion on the brochure to acknowledge their sponsorship.  All agreed that this will be done.

Sponsors One sponsor  $500

Carrie reported that all vendors on the contact list were mailed the Sponsor Invitation and Sponsor Guidelines.  Steve Volarz did post the sponsorship invitation on the website.

Vendor Time/Door Prize

Rick suggested that we extend lunch to 1.5 hours to allow the POCCs to visit the vendors.  Dawn cautioned that the March meeting already is a full day and can not accommodate additional lunchtime.  All agreed this could be considered for future meetings.

Rick also suggested a door prize be offered to entice POCCs to visit vendors.  It was thought that completing a sign-off card that shows that you meet each featured vendor and then draw for a prize. Cindy volunteered to put together an entry form.

Suggestions: $25 gas cards or American Express gift cards.

Speaker Gifts

Hershey Food Chocolate Items and KEYPOCC shirts will be given to each speaker at the March meeting.

By-Law Revisions

Changes are needed to the by-laws for the eligibility of corporate members to hold office and to include responsibility for securing the CE credits to the office of Vice President.

Carrie will make the changes, and send out to the active members prior to the March meeting.
