Summary of our November 12, 2013 meeting

Best 45-second | Andrew Keutmann

10-minute speakers | Danny Ruby and Jim Infantino

News | Great news....We have applications from 4 prospective new members!
Jeff Falkowski, Fitness Trainer; Beth Balaban, Media Artist; Mark Sills, banker with Rockland Trust; Andrew Hanson, employment attorney/basketball scout. This is most encouraging. Visitor Day really works.

Thank you | Thanks to Aaron McFadden for organizing the first official Family Advisory Sphere Group Meeting. We plan to do an offsite meeting every month. Thanks to Jim Infantino for volunteering to lead the Business Services Sphere Group, and organize their first official offsite meeting.

Announcements | Next Tuesday, 11/19, BNI director Erica Merrill DelSignore will be visiting to teach us about using on-line slips (rather than paper slips) for reporting our 1-2-1s, BNI Bux, referrals, and CEUs. Within the next few months, we need to embrace the online method and do away with paper slips altogether.

I'll be on vacation the next few weeks. Natalie will run the meeting. Mark Sills of Rockland Trust will be my sub on Nov 19.

SNOW POLICY: the season has arrived. If Boston city schools are closed because of snow, our meeting will be cancelled. Always check the school closure listings the morning of our meeting.

Calendar notes | A quick poll taken indicated at least 10 people plan to attend the optional pre-Thanksgiving meeting on Nov 26. Those in attendence will be granted CEU credits for showing up. Please remember to bring your own coffee/breakfast that day, as Sonsie will not provide it.
