This lead to a discussion of programs as membership drives and membership drives in general –

Book sales were discussed as effective vehicles – Buffalo discussed its book sale, potential for membership drives, and the special preview event they do for their book sale

Fine Arts and Humanities are still important!

Some frustration was expressed at the focus on STEM to the exclusion of the fine arts and humanities. How can we make sure they remain a part of our programming?

Suggestions include:

Incorporating music/art in fundraisers, events, and as honorees

Also, re-start the tradition of have music/art as a part of the state convention

Also – STEAM workshop at the state convention

Take away for Edwina – reach out to former State Board C/U Director Angela Clark Taylor and discuss if the “Finding Your Passion” workshop she did for the Student Track can be converted to a program in a box

Suggested Assistance from State Board: create a sample `Donor Card’ that can be placed in the membership section of the website
