2010 Live Your Dream Planning Committee December 9, 2009 Phood On Main – 11:00 a.m. Members Present: Amy Boyd, Chris Deviny, Susan Gyi, Carolyn Kegrice, Jeanne Holmes 1.0 Speakers/Panelists – There was discussion regarding the status of our speakers. Because we are having trouble filling the Performing & Visual Arts sessions, so the committee decided to combine the two sessions. Then Veronica called and told the committee that she has secured an actor, so we will leave the two sessions separate as originally planned. For the Performing Arts session we have Claudine Little (Grammy’s) and Marcie (Actress). Chris will contact Fox Theater to see if we can find a female Director. For the Visual Arts session we have confirmed Katy Betz (Artist) and Barbara Contreras (FIDM). Chris has contacted Inland Empire Magazine to see if we can get a female reporter or photographer. Amy Boyd will moderate that panel rather than Jeanne. Susan said the Finance & Technology panelists are all confirmed. She is going to ask Pamela Thompson to moderate that session again. Susan is going to ask Michelle Rainer to moderate the Medical & Science session, which will put Dr. Milton back as a panelist. Susan has contacted an astrophysics woman (Gabriela) from UCR about being on that panel. We still would like to have a female vet if possible for this panel. Chris said that she could contact a female psychologist. It was suggested that we add to the Entrepreneurship session title. The committee decided to rename the session to Entrepreneurship (How to Write a Business Plan). The Inland Empire Women’s Business Center has offered to have Rachael participate on this panel. The committee decided that two people on this panel should be sufficient. Rachael would bring business plan materials that could be handed out to the girls. 2.0 Budget – Amy will have a year-to-date budget and email it to everyone. The committee expressed a desire to keep up-to-date on the budget. 3.0 Gifts – We have a MP3 player, Jeanne has purchased some gifts, and we will give the panelists/speakers gift cards again. 4.0 Goodies for the Bags – Carolyn is checking on getting some candy. Claudine will provide us with CD’s from the Grammy’s again. 5.0 Journals – Amy talked about the journals. We should be able to have a sample for our January meeting. We will put the program in the journal and a photo and bio of each speaker. 6.0 Backpacks – Carolyn and Chris both expressed concerns about the backpacks and the costs for this item. It is something that we need to talk about at our January meeting when Veronica is planning to bring a sample backpack(s) for the committee to see. We may need to evaluate whether or not it is feasible within our budget to do backpacks. 7.0 Schools – Ellen and Jeanne are going to meet with Dr. Wendel Tucker, Superintendent of Alvord USD on December 17th. They are meeting with Elliott Duchon, Superintendent of Jurupa USD on January 7th. Jeanne has contact Janet Downey from Riverside USD. They have a new Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent. Janet is going to email her boss regarding setting up a meeting with RUSD.
