(2:09pm meeting starts)

Accountants
Meghan put together a list of accountants to interview and questions to ask them. Our current accountant isn't serving our needs, not communicating well.

CNW Weekly Messages
Group agreed to post weekly messages on CNW Sunday, starting today, and they agreed on a certain order: Shusara, Perry, PielleAyan, Meghan, Linda. Board agreed to allow Meghan to do it on early Monday. Shusara said people should post on the CNW site first and then link to that in emails. Tim chose not to participate. Shusara asked Tim to communicate to her why he's not onboard with this.

In-ergize
Perry played a YouTube video discussing a conference where they were inviting applications for speakers. Applications due August 26. November 15 is the event. Shusara is fine with doing the event.

Meet and Greet
Group talked about the meet and greet and decided it would be better to postpone because the original date of August 19 was too close and did not leave time to advertise and get ready. Linda has eye surgeries coming up but no set dates as of yet. The group decided it might be better to try and do it in October, either 3rd or 4th Tuesday. Shusara said her 2 weeks away will be either the 3rd - 4th week of September or the 4th week of September into the first week of October.

Monthly Raffle Video
Tim brought up the monthly raffle video. PielleAyan is going to do it for this and last month's drawing. Group discussed having different people perform the raffle to make it easier on the raffle video being produced.

Satsang Difference
Shusara says she feels a shift in how satsang is run since we started our ritual from last board meeting. The only issue she has is that she doesn't have a space to get in a meditative state before satsang.

KCSA Growth and PR
Shusara has started writing a book. Partly because she realized a big benefit of being interviewed. She's thinking about taking 2 weeks off to work on the book. She and Perry need to bring in more income to pay for a task for Ryan. Shusara needs someone to work on the promotional work; she needs a PR person. PielleAyan has already started working on this. Shusara put out a general question as to how to get known and grow. PielleAyan said she downloaded a Doreen Virtue course that talked about how she did it.

KCSA Share Picture Quotes
Shusara feels we should share the KCSA quote pictures with other Facebook pages to increase likes on the page. Wants people to make the text that we post be individual to each person, not generic message. She also mentioned posting things to Facebook groups. Board agreed to post at least one picture to groups per week.

Shabingo
PielleAyan discussed bingo. Shusara asked PielleAyan to look at bingo as a way to bring in money because she couldn't do everything to bring in funds. Meghan discussed financial aspects of holding bingo. Getting a 501c(3) determination letter is important because it would allow us to host bingo, apply for grants, and other things. Board agreed to move forward with doing bingo. There's a cost of upwards of $1500 to get licenses.

Shusara on Other Programs
PielleAyan made Shusara a guest on other BBS programs, a magazine. She's looking at applying to be considered for Oprah's O network. She's emailed other people for interviews; Alan Steinfeld. She can't get the Facebook donate button to work. She's going to contact George Clooney, Woody Harrelson; Linda mentioned Jim Carrey.
