Literature Committee Minutes, January, 18

January Meeting started at 9pm,EST, January 10th 2018, 2nd Wednesday of the Month.

Those present:

Vickie R., Victoria M., David, Jennifer, Kate.
December meeting cancelled.
Focus: The Daily Reader and the Mission Statement
Mission Statement approved and sent to Mark R to post on the website.
Daily Reader:  Some new submissions came in and Vickie R the Chair will post in our Drop Box.
Some of the members did editing of submissions given to us to edit and David submitted five new submissions.
Kate contacted one of the Speaker Couples from the Minneapolis Convention, Dave and Marya.   They said they would give a submission to the Daily Reader edition but due to the holidays things were dropped. Kate will re-contact them, as well as the two other couples who were presenters to request submissions based on their Presentations.
Most of the meeting was spent brain-storming as to how to get folks interested in writing submissions:
  • Some proactive decisions were that Victoria will get retreat organizer names from the RCA Website and contact them. She will send them the “how to form” so people at the retreat will have an idea of what a submission to the Daily Reader might look like.
  • Jennifer will contact experienced couples to see if they might send in a submission.
  • David will do more writing and submit next month.
  • Other members will continue editing old submissions.
Meeting ended early at about 9:50. Due to Valentine’s Day, we will meet on the following Wednesday, February 19th.
