18:23 - Committee Updates

  • Promotions

    • Amanda met with Madi and Ana and they’re going to take over the Pop’s Nights. Good connections to DJs in Oakland.

    • New night w/ name and brand; projected visuals. More of an “event”.

    • Planning Silent Auction for Giving Tuesday (12/3)

    • Throwing Bo’s night was good; well curated, crossover attendance from Besties Bash audience.

    • Trying to get more active committee activity around events generally, working together, rather than individuals owning separate events.

  • Tech:

    • Server migration is done.

    • We’re testing the new analytics stack — it seems cost effective but it’s not stable enough yet to endorse.

    • Committee met; small turnout but means we’ve started and can start setting project priorities.

    • Forrest installed a new mix engine. Next step is to get new things connected to it.

  • Fundraising:

    • Giving Tuesday is December 3rd.

    • Caro working on donors list for campaign targeting.

    • We want to run dedicated campaigns to have people upgrade their donations. Need to review the technology for this (Kindful vs. manual.)

    • We’re considering launching the fundraiser at the start of November. Might delay until mid-November to get various technical things in place.

    • We’ll have a target $15K for this campaign. Need to decide what we’ll do if we hit the goal early.

    • Working on putting together the match fund.

    • Working on ways to incentivise more DJ participation.

  • Content:

    • Amanda is working with Lily exploring ideas around podcasting — both production of one to distribute station content, and curation of community podcasts.

19:33 - Annual Report

  • What do we need to prepare for this? Make sure we’re ahead on it.

  • Required as a non-profit, needs to be published by eo January 2020.

  • Includes:

    • Budget report.

    • Strategic initiatives and work we’ve done toward it.

      • Some stories/reports that encapsulate the work toward initiatives.

    • Demographic coverage.

    • Let people know that they made a good investment.
