Please mark your calendar for the PMA Board meeting on MONDAY, JANUARY 9, 2012. It will start at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at the Bob Evans Restaurant in East Peoria. I have made arrangements for us to have a table that will be separate from most of the diners. I plan to have a minimum of 6 Board meeting in 2012 so that we can limit discussing business items at our regular PMA meetings and focus primarily on magic.
I believe the format that Grant introduced last year for the meetings of a mini lecture by a PMA member followed by a member and others performing magic connected to the lecture theme worked well. I hope to continue this format in 2012. Troy Keefer has agreed to give a mini lecture on "Close-up" magic at our January meeting. Is there anyone of us on the Board willing do 15 minutes of "close- up" magic following Troy's lecture?
Yes, thanks to Troy reminding me, there will be a regular PMA meeting the day after our annual banquet. As a general policy, I think it is advisable not to cancel the regularly scheduled monthly meeting, plus I don't want to risk loosing our meeting site since we have just begun to get established there.
There are several items that we need to work on in 2012 for the benefit of the PMA. We can determine what they all are in January. The tentative agenda I have for the Board meeting is as follows:
1 - Setting the themes for each of the PMA meetings for the year.
2 - Establishing the Committee for the club show in April
3 - Report from the Convention Committee regarding the Central Illinois Get-together in September.
4 - Report regarding the Proposal to the Heart of Illinois Fair
5 - Financial report of PMA from Brad.
6 - Establishing a Committee to review and revise the PMA By-laws.
If you have any pressing items that should be on the January agenda, please let me know so I can include them.
I thank each of you for willing to serve on the PMA Board this next year. I hope we can do some things to move the PMA forward in a positive direction. See you in January.
Have a Merry Christmas!
