Musician’s Network Meeting Minutes 2/23/2015

Officer Announcements:

General Manager: I’m spinning so I can see all of you. I have nothing to report, but I run the stage during the day. Come to me if you have any music suggestions. Also GT Safespaces is probably not happening, as training is weekdays at 11 or 1:30.

Equipment Manager: I’m UTC’s well-equipped manager. I don’t really have much to say, except stuff was done in the sound system that nobody will notice except me and Austin. We did some really bitchin’ stuff.

Advertising Officer: There’s a show this Friday. I’m passing out fliers.

Treasurer: Dues are $10 yearly, practice fees are $15 per semester. Pay dues before booking practice time with Caroline.

Secretary: I have nothing to report, but if you need to join Jacketpages or get on the mailing list, come talk to me.

Also if you do something awesome in the space, you can fill out our priority request form and request practice time up to a week in advance.

President: Greta gave me this stylish hat, so give her a hug. You can give Tanika a hug, too. If you’re wondering why Meredith’s hands are red, it’s because we sacrificed a goat to watch over the space. We’re having another groovy Friday actually on a Friday to promote UTC and the Chicken Dinner Faceplant show. Be there. Especially if you play guitar.

General Announcements:

  1. Thursday is the opening of the Clough Art Crawl, where there will be performances, including SU2 (my band) and Hot for Math Teacher (H4MT). Maybe vote for us if you want.

Alex: It helps with paranormal activity.

Austin: We’re having live soundclass next week.
