Member Appointments
Member roles were determined/verified as the following:

Chair – Brandon          Secretary – Angie

Vice Chair – Melanie   Treasurer – Bill

Roles are voluntary with at least 1 year of required time within that position.  Members may step down from current role after required time has been fulfilled.

Meeting Logistics
Recommendation to change time of meeting was heard from Brandon.  It was determined that going forward, CTIC will meet at 10:00am on the second Tuesday of each month.  Brandon will secure a space for the meeting to be held at the Moorhead High School before the next meeting.

Budget Items
The current budget is recorded as $5,005.68 as reported by Bill.  Last year’s Expo costs were estimated to be around $1,700.00 out of CTIC funds and could easily be recouped with small fundraisers throughout the year.  Options for additional grant dollars were discussed if needed to continue providing an Expo in future years such as Dakota Medical Foundation.  No formal grant documents were located by Melanie, Bill or Brandon.  Jessa also reported that the domain cost for the website will be increasing to $10.95/mo. starting in December.  The committee members agreed to this cost increase.

Expo
Brandon presented a suggestion for change in format of the Expo.

  • Breakout sessions would focus on skill-based presentations.
    • Home (basic home maintenance)
    • Auto (how to change a tire, check tire pressure etc)
    • Community (how to ride the bus received positive feedback from last year)
  • Possible split of days to include ND day and MN day.Jessica suggested the committee break into two groups; one to focus on the Expo and a second to focus on fundraising ideas. The committee members agreed and divided into the following groups:

Expo                                        Fundraising
Brandon                                       Lisa
Melanie                                         Jessica
Jennifer                                        Bill
Angie                                              Jessa

CTIC Meeting Minutes 4/8/14

Attendees: Allison Smith (CCRI), Jessa Thompson (CCRI), Lisa Jorissen (ALP), Jennifer Fitzpatrick (Connections), Donna Atherton (ARC), Bill Smith (Access), and Judy Wollin (MHS)

 Website update

The meeting started by Jessa giving an update on the CTIC website.  Jessa explained she had posted a volunteer request through First Link but had not heard a response.  She was going to post on dragon jobs on the MSUM website, but never posted because wanted to post mission statement and was not sure what it was.  Jessa decided to look up information on how to create a website and started to make one on her own.  She said she was willing to pay for the first month as it was just to get it started, but if CTIC would like to continue using the website, it would cost $9 per month or $108 per year.  There is also an additional yearly hosting fee of $15.  Jessa showed the website at http://ctic-mn.org.  The group agreed to continue using this website.  Jessa stated the website had not been submitted to google yet and cannot be searched but she had located instructions on how to do it for free. (Note: It now can be searched for in google).  Jessa asked for ideas on things to include in the navigation bar and pictures.  If anyone has anything they would like to see included in the website, please email to jmthompson@creativecare.org.

 

Gala update

Allison said the flyers were sent out for people to nominate for the ESTR and Support Staff award.  Nominations are due by April 18th. Flyers were also sent out for the Gala event.  Food has been picked out for the event.  Next step is to start working on getting baskets for the silent auction.

 

Student Expo update

Judy reviewed the tentative schedule the subcommittee has been discussing.  They would like to do 4 breakout sessions.  Each session would be 35-40 minutes long.  There will also be an opening and closing of some kind.  The plan is to have lunch served in 3 shifts. They are just starting to contact people about leading a session or having a vendor booth.  If anyone has suggestions on topics let Judy know.

The next CTIC meeting is May13th at 3:30pm at the Moorhead High School.
