Meeting Notes 11/12/09

Business Development and Programs Committee
Nov. 12, 2009 Meeting Notes

In attendance: Kristen Barbarotta, Mike Raphael, Eileen Moncrief, Frank Carmon, Elliot Sirota, Jane Garibay, Judy Stickels

B2B Review: Beanery is a better location. People coming in and out - see meeting going on and are interested. Still core group other than spotlight presenters. Seems to get better response with personal invite to meeting. Great meeting this past week. Good energy in the room. Continue to the end of the year and reassess. NO MEETING 12/23.

RoundTable Review: Small attendance. Continue to end of year and reassess.
