ABBA Meeting minutes
November 5, 2004
Codex Liberatus was a great success. Thanks to all that participated and helped out.
If you have any suggestions or ideas for the ABBA exhibition next year please email Katherine: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you still have work or auction items to pick up, please contact Dan: email@example.com
Many thanks to Melissa McGurgan who documented the exhibit! We plan to add these images to the web site.
There are extra announcements available with Dan in case you need them for your resume file.
ABBA made about $400 in the Harry Wood auction, which includes an anonymous donation of $50.
If you still have dues to pay, please contact Meng: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to Shannon Ecke who has volunteered to maintain the ABBA web site! The site will be updated with current officers and members as well as announcements for shows, lectures and workshops.
IV. Joe D’Ambrosio Workshop- A Book of Boxes (November 20th)
Those who are participating will receive an email with details and a list of supplies to bring.
V. Legal information
Dan attended a legal seminar for ASU student groups. Issues surrounding insurance liability and student responsibility were discussed. Dan has a manual and contact information for anyone who has questions. If ABBA participates in any off campus activities, or outreach volunteer work, we will discus these matters further.
ABBA will be applying for funding from the SORC next spring. This money will go towards bringing in guest speakers, and funding workshops. Thank you to Sharon Billings who has volunteered her time to research our options.
