The Marketing Committee Report
The Marketing Committee met on Feb. 13, 2009 and reviewed some
new ideas as well as evaluated previous ideas. Gary would like to
see Waynet.org be a stronger library of Online Resources through
e-books. Gary handed out some examples of an e-book that would make
a nice example of the plan. Jane handed out Waynet membership cards
for members to pass along to potential members. The board accepted
the Marketing Report.
Discussion on Board Policy regarding Fee Waivers and the
automatic roll-over of current fee-waived not-for-profit members.
Jane presented a current listing of Fee Waived members and the
rollover list. In October of 2008 she contacted these members and
requested an update of contact information. The next step is to mail
a letter to encourage a voluntary donation to Waynet.org. Tim Love
would like to see this done annually and to remove their listing if
there has been no response after a second notice is mailed or
emailed. A lengthy discussion ensued as to when to remove these Fee
Waived members if there is no response. We decided an awareness
letter would be drafted by Jane & the Marketing Committee that
states we would like a response and a contact update. If this info
is not received we may drop their listing on Waynet.org. Jane will
take care of the follow-up on this project to get this list updated
as needed. Bill asked for a motion to accept this new procedure for
Fee Waiver members and the rollover list. Jodi Johnson seconded. The
motion was unanimously accepted.
