OKAY.

DID EVERYONE HAVE

[1. APPROVAL OF MINUTES]

A CHANCE TO REVIEW THE MINUTES FROM THE JANUARY 9TH RETREAT? DID ANYONE HAVE ANY REVISIONS? RIGHT.

WE NEED A MOTION TO APPROVE THE MINUTES I MOVE THAT WE APPROVE THE MINUTES FROM OUR JANUARY 9TH RETREAT.

IT WAS THE SECOND.

THANK YOU, ELVIA.

ALL IN FAVOR OF APPROVING THE JANUARY 9TH MINUTES, RETREATMENT LET'S RAISE YOUR HAND.

ANYONE OPPOSED? ALRIGHT.

THE MOTION CARRIES UNANIMOUSLY.

NOW THE ITEMS FOR

[2. ITEMS FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION]

INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION FROM THE RETREAT, WE WERE ABLE TO DISTILL THREE TOP PRIORITIES THAT WE ARE GOING TO ACCOMPLISH THIS YEAR.

AND OUR LARGEST OF THOSE PRIORITIES IS THE CREATION OF THE COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER.

AND OBVIOUSLY THIS IS SOMETHING THAT MUST BE DONE THROUGH A PHASED APPROACH.

HOWEVER WE NEED TO GET STARTED.

AND, YOU KNOW, WE ALSO SET A PRIORITY FOR WHAT OUR FIRST CONTENT WOULD BE.

I COULD SEE YOU.

IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU.

SO THE FIRST THAT'S OUR FIRST STEP.

AND REALISTICALLY, WHAT WE SAID IS THAT COVID 19 INFO WOULD BE OUR FIRST INFORMATION.

NOW RENEE HAS ALREADY INDICATED THAT KARMA MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP US WITH THE SOCIAL MEDIA APPROACH FOR THIS, BUT WE REALLY NEED COMMUNITY, UH, MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION TO BE, TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF AT LEAST ONE PART OF THE RESOURCE CENTER.

AND I HAD SOME IDEAS BASED ON THE RETREAT, BUT I'M NOT GOING TO MAKE THE CALL FOR EACH OF YOU.

WE HAD SEVERAL ITEMS THAT WE DISCUSSED THAT, AND THAT WERE SIGNIFICANT.

ONE WAS SOMETHING FOR SENIORS.

ONE WAS SOMETHING FOR VOTER EDUCATION AND REGISTRATION.

UM, HOLD ON, LET ME LOOK AT MY NOTES.

WHAT ELSE, WHAT ELSE HAVE WE GOT? STEPHANIE? YOU ALWAYS REMEMBER THINGS.

I HAVE IT RIGHT HERE.

I KNEW IT.

YEAH.

SO, UH, WE HAD IT FOR, UM, YOU SAID EDUCATION, REGISTRATION AND VOTER REGISTRATION AND ELECTION NON-PROFITS UM, WHAT ELSE IS ON HERE? EDUCATION AND YEAH, THE LITERACY FOR LIFE.

YEAH.

LITERACY.

YEAH, I'LL TAKE, I'LL TAKE LITERACY.

AND, BUT ALSO I W I WANTED TO TAKE, UM, I THINK IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT TO NOT REPLY GROUND THAT'S ALREADY BEEN DONE.

AND SO I'D LIKE TO TRY AND FIND ALL THE SURVEYS IN THE LAST FEW YEARS THAT DIFFERENT, UM, COMMITTEES OR COMMISSIONS MAY HAVE DONE AND TO SEE BOTH WHAT THE RESPONSES WERE AND WHO DID NOT RESPOND, UM, TO SEE, YOU KNOW, WHAT FURTHER INFORMATION GATHERING NEEDS TO BE DONE FROM THE PUBLIC.

OKAY.

SO THE G I S D WAS DOING A, WAS ASKING FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR A READING PROGRAM, TRYING TO THINK, I THINK I KEPT IT.

I SEE YOU, JENNIFER COURTNEY ALIVE.

IT'S THE FIRST TIME.

SO WE DON'T KNOW IF AFTER THE EVENT OR NOT, BECAUSE IT WAS OCTOBER OR SOMETHING.

UM, BECAUSE MY I'M NOT WELL ON THAT.

SO THE ONE PROPOSAL DOC I'LL PROJECT, WE PARTNER WITH COUNCIL MEMBER FROM, UH, UH,

[00:05:04]

WRITE-OFF MOODLE.

SO WHAT'S LIKELY TO HAVE MORE, MAYBE MORE, UM, IF NOT, THEN I'LL COME.

I THOUGHT EVERYTHING TOTALLY CAUGHT UP CALL ONE OR TWO MEETINGS.

UM, I BELIEVE I TOOK THE ONUS BECAUSE I WILL ALWAYS SEE WHAT WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT PERSON TO START WITH.

AND I KNOW THAT SHE COULDN'T CONTINUE WITH THIS YEAR, BUT SHE, THAT SHE WOULD BE AVAILABLE TO HELP IF SHE COULD.

SHE KNOWS ALL THE GIS D CONTACTS.

YES.

AND YOU SHOULD HAVE HER CONTACT INFORMATION, BUT SHE DID INDICATE THAT SHE'D BE HAPPY TO HELP.

YEAH.

AND SHE WOULD BE, I THINK, MORE THAN HAPPY TO PARTNER WITH YOU ON THAT.

THAT'S WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU, JENNIFER.

YES.

MA'AM MINDY FORMAT.

ARE WE HAVING THIS RESOURCE CENTER? DID WE DECIDE ON THAT? THEN WE'RE JUST INFORMATION GATHERING, BUT WE DON'T KNOW HOW THAT INFORMATION PRESENTED.

SO I THINK WE, WE SAID WE WOULD TAKE A MULTI-PRONGED APPROACH.

WE KNOW THAT SOCIAL MEDIA IS THE EASIEST WAY FOR US TO GET INFORMATION TO THE MASS WORLD.

HOWEVER, WE HAVEN'T CREATED OUR SOCIAL MEDIA SITE.

WE CAN.

AND WELL, WHAT IDEAS DID YOU HAVE FOR OTHER WAYS? WE, YOU KNOW, WE, WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO SHARE THINGS IN THE CITY PRESS.

WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO SHARE THINGS VIA UTILITY BILL INSERTS.

WE HAVE LOTS OF OPTIONS.

DID YOU HAVE SOME IDEAS FOR WHAT YOU THOUGHT WOULD BE APPROACH WOULD WORK? IT JUST DEPENDS ON IF WE WANT THIS TO BE A PERMANENT CONTINUOUS PROJECT THAT WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO UPDATE AND MAINTAIN, OR IS THIS GOING TO BE LIKE A ONE-TIME LIKE PUSH INFORMATION CAMPAIGN? I, I DON'T, I CAN'T SEE THE VALUE OF A ONE-TIME THING, ESPECIALLY SINCE SO MANY PHASES WILL BE INVOLVED IN THE IMPLEMENTATION.

I THINK WE NEED TO PROVIDE WHEN I THINK RESOURCE CENTER, I THINK IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S PERMANENT ALMOST, ALMOST LIKE A MULTIMEDIA LIBRARY.

AND THEN WHAT'S OUR, WHAT WOULD BE THE BUDGET? DO WE HAVE A BUDGET? OH YEAH.

IT'S HUGE.

UM, SO LET, LET, LET LET'S BACK UP BEFORE WE EVEN GO THERE WHILE THOSE ARE WONDERFUL QUESTIONS, THAT'S NOT GOING TO GET US TO GETTING COVID 19 INFORMATION OUT TODAY.

SO YES, WE HAVE A BUDGET AND WE CAN TALK ABOUT THE BUDGET.

WE DON'T HAVE A BUDGET FOR A DEVELOPER.

THAT'S THE QUESTION.

WE DON'T HAVE BUDGET FOR A WEBSITE.

THAT'S IF THAT'S THE QUESTION, WE CAN DO SOME, WE HAVE BUDGET FOR A LITTLE BIT OF A BUDGET TO DO SOME ACTIVITIES, BUT THAT'S GOING TO HAVE TO SPREAD ACROSS ALL THREE OF THE INITIATIVES.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE RESOURCE CENTER, THE INVESTMENT WE MAKE IS GOING TO BE DIRECTLY RELATED TO, YOU KNOW, FROM A COST BENEFIT STANDPOINT, WHAT WE THINK WE'RE GOING TO GET OUT OF IT.

BUT I DON'T THINK WE EVEN, WE DID NOT GET TO YOU WHEN YOU WERE AT THE RETREAT.

WE DID NOT GET TO BUDGET AND THAT'S A GOOD, YOU KNOW, THAT'S A GOOD THING TO DISCUSS.

LET'S GET THROUGH, WHO'S GOING TO TAKE WHICH PARTS OF IT, AND THEN WE'LL GO TO BUDGET.

NEXT FAIR.

YES, MA'AM ELVIA.

OKAY.

I'VE GOT THE EMAIL THAT I GOT FROM THE GIS T AND WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN A PROJECT AIMED AT ENCOURAGING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO READ MORE AND AS TO MOTIVATE STUDENTS, TO MOTIVATE FAMILIES, TO SHARE MORE TIME READING TOGETHER AND TO MOTIVATE MORE COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO ACCESS FREE RESOURCES.

AND THEN IT GOES ONTO DIFFERENT THINGS.

UM, I COULD GET SOMEBODY FROM THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AT ONE OF OUR MEETINGS TO COME AND TELL US ABOUT IT.

WHAT DID THEY, WHAT DO THEY SAY? WHAT THEY WANT US TO DO READ IT.

IT WOULD BE, UH, OF COURSE, UH, UH, A BOOK TRAILER.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR 50 VOLUNTEERS TO HELP CREATE 50 SHORT INTRODUCTIONS OR BOOK TRAILERS FOR BOOKS FOUND WITH THE SOMETHING DIGITAL LIBRARY, A BOOK TRADED AS A SHORT 30 TO 90 MINUTE INTRODUCTION TO A BOOK.

IT BUILDS INTEREST IN THE CHARACTERS OR THE STORYLINE.

AND THEN THE BOOK TRAILER WILL BE USED, WILL BE SHARED.

EACH FRIDAY,

[00:10:01]

STARTED IN JANUARY.

T-SHIRT, WE'LL SHARE THIS WITH OUR STUDENTS.

THEY WILL BE SHARED WITH THE COMMUNITY, UH, VIA SOCIAL MEDIA, VIA SOCIAL MEDIA IS WHAT IT SAYS.

BUT, BUT, BUT THEY'RE, THEY'RE ASKING FOR VIDEOS.

I, THAT, I DON'T KNOW.

THAT'S WHY I SAID, I'D HAVE TO GET SOMEBODY TO EXPLAIN IT BETTER TO ME.

UM, YOU KNOW, LIKE I SAID, I JUST GOT THIS A FEW DAYS AGO.

I MEAN, THEY MIGHT HAVE ALREADY ENOUGH, BUT I'LL CHECK ON IT AND GET BACK WITH YOU.

ANYTIME THEY NEED 50 VOLUNTEERS, THEY PROBABLY DON'T HAVE THEM.

THEY MIGHT HAVE SOME OF THEM.

YEAH.

TELL ME WHY DON'T YOU JUST SEND THAT? CAN YOU EMAIL THAT TO ME? YEAH.

I'LL FORWARD IT TO YOU.

THAT'D BE GREAT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO LIZ HAS STEPPED UP FOR LITERACY.

LIZ, DID YOU SAY COVID TWO OR JUST LITERACY? LITERACY? WELL, YOU HAD MENTIONED COVID, I'M JUST CHECKING.

OKAY.

THERE IS THE, WE, WE SHOULD WORK WITH THE PRE-EXISTING GARLAND, CORRECT.

RENEE HAS GOT ALL THE DETAILS ON COVID.

SO WE JUST REALLY NEED SOMEONE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR FIGURING OUT A PLAN FOR HOW WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THAT.

YEAH.

IF SOMEBODY TEXTS RESPONSIBILITY, THEN I'LL FEED INFORMATION.

AS I GET IT FROM THE MANAGERS AND THE DEPARTMENT, AND THEN YOU GUYS DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING EXCEPT FEED IT TO YOUR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY GOES TO THE WEBSITE.

YEAH.

REALISTICALLY, HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS WITH ANY OF THIS INFORMATION, WHETHER WE GET OUR FACEBOOK PAGE UP QUICKLY OR NOT, BY SHARING THIS INFORMATION, WHOEVER TAKES OWNERSHIP OF AN AREA IS GOING TO CRAFT THE MESSAGING FOR THAT AREA.

AND THEN WE WILL ALL SHARE THE INFORMATION.

YOU'RE NOT HAVING TO DO IT ALL BY YOURSELF, BUT THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING INFORMATION INTO THE HANDS OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE IT, AS WHAT WE SAID IN THE, THE, UM, RETREAT MATTERED, NO MATTER WHAT COVERED OUR MEGA SITE OPEN THIS MORNING, I SHARED SOMETHING THIS MORNING, RIGHT.

THEY HAD A THOUSAND THEY DID TODAY AND THAT WAS IT.

AND IT WAS GONE.

SO, YEAH.

SO AS WE LEARN, YOU KNOW, AND RENEE IN HER ROLE AS HAS HER FINGER ON THE PULSE, THERE, WE WILL HAVE ACCESS TO INFORMATION AS SOON AS IT'S AVAILABLE.

BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE CAN DO, AND THIS WILL BE TRUE EVEN AFTER WE CREATE, OKAY, WE EACH HAVE OUR INDIVIDUAL NETWORKS, THE PAGE HAS NO AUDIENCE YET.

SO IF YOU ARE SHARING WITH YOUR NETWORK, THAT'S A HUGE STEP TOWARD GETTING INFORMATION TO THE CITIZENS OF OUR CITY, WHICH WE SAID IS OUR TOP PRIORITY RIGHT ON NEXT DOOR.

DEBRA MORRIS IS VERY GOOD ABOUT SHARING INFORMATION.

THAT'S FINE.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT OTHER AREAS.

WELL, BUT THE COUNCIL.

SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT US, I'M THRILLED WITH ALL THE COUNCIL, WHAT THE COUNCIL DOES, BUT WE, AS A COMMISSION ALSO HAVE THE ABILITY TO AMPLIFY THAT MESSAGING.

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO COMPETE.

WE'RE WE'RE ONLY TRYING TO AUGMENT AND, AND, AND JUST GET IT FURTHER.

YEAH.

YEAH.

SO I THINK THAT MY, MY COUNCILMAN DOES TOO.

I'M SURE EVERYONE, YOU KNOW, CAN DISCUSS WITH THEIR COUNCIL PERSON, YOU KNOW, HOW THEY'RE DOING THEIR INFORMATION SHARING, BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT WE ARE CONNECTED TO PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT BE CONNECTED TO THEIR COUNCIL PEOPLE.

SO WE ALSO HAVE STEPHANIE, WHAT ELSE DID WE HAVE THE ELECTION THIS YEAR IS NOT HERE, ELECTION AND VOTER REGISTRATION INFORMATION.

UM, THE CONTACT.

AND, UH, I KNOW STEPHANIE WAS PAYING ATTENTION BECAUSE SHE KNEW I HAD A TRAINING LAST NIGHT.

AND, UM, THERE'S ALREADY AN AUDIO VERSION OF THAT ON THE WEBSITE.

AND THEN AS WELL, UH, I HAVE A POWERPOINT THAT I'M WILLING TO SHARE A PDF OF THAT TO FOLKS IN THE COMMUNITY WHO WANT IT, WHO ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN THE LOCAL, UM, POLITICAL PROCESS.

SO YOU GUYS COULD SHARE THAT.

I COULD SHARE THAT WITH YOU GUYS, IF YOU WANT ME TO, HEY, WHO WANTS TO TAKE ELECTION AND VOTER REGISTRATION? CAUSE I WAS AT YOU.

YES MA'AM.

YES.

MA'AM.

I THINK THAT YOU WILL HAVE THE YEAR'S ASSISTANCE BECAUSE THAT WAS ONE OF HIS PET THINGS.

SO YOU WILL NOT BE ON YOUR OWN, BUT THOSE STEPHANIE AND I HAVE ON HER REGISTRARS, LIZ ALSO LYNCHING GET USING LEAGUE OF WOMEN, VOTERS RESOURCES.

I TO HAVE A LEAGUE OF WOMEN, VOTERS MEMBERS.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE, WE WILL ALL,

[00:15:01]

AND THIS IS THE WAY IT WILL WORK.

EACH PERSON WHO TAKES AN AREA WILL HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE ENTIRE GROUP.

AND AS MUCH AS WE ARE ABLE TO, BUT WHAT WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO W WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IT AND SAY, OKAY, FINE.

WE KNOW RENEE HAS ALL THIS INFORMATION ABOUT THE UPCOMING ELECTION.

WE KNOW THE VOTER REGISTRATION INFORMATION RIGHT NOW.

WE KNOW WHEN PEOPLE NEED TO REGISTER.

WE KNOW WHEN THE ELECTION IS, UM, WE NEED TO, YOU KNOW, RENEE ALWAYS HAS CARS IN HER OFFICE BECAUSE I'LL REGISTER VOTERS ANYWHERE.

I GO, I REGISTERED VOTERS AND INTRINSIC.

I REGISTERED VOTERS AT ROSLYN, WHEREVER I AM AND PEOPLE ARE REGISTERED.

WE REGISTERED THEM CARDS DOWNSTAIRS AT THE MARSHAL'S DESK TOO.

SO THEY'LL WALK UP, THEY CAN JUST WALK UP AND GET ONE FROM PAM AND IT'S GOT POSTED ON IT AND THEN DROP IT IN THE MAIL.

SO, SO YOU KNOW THAT, THAT, YOU KNOW, THAT WE JUST NEED TO PULL TOGETHER ALL OF THOSE POINTS.

AND IF YOU WANT, WE CAN TALK ABOUT IT, BUT I THINK WE CAN PULL TOGETHER JUST SOME EASY BULLETS.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT TRYING TO WRITE VOLUMES.

WE'RE JUST TRYING TO GIVE PEOPLE INFORMATION THAT THEY NEED.

YES.

MA'AM.

DOES THAT WORK? YES, MA'AM.

OKAY.

EXCELLENT.

AND THANK YOU, CHRIS SHAW.

ALL RIGHT.

I'LL BE GLAD TO CONTINUALLY FORWARD THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS INFORMATION TO YOU, BUT I DON'T HAVE YOUR EMAIL.

ARE YOU READY TO COPY IT DOWN? YEP.

IS MRS. JACK M R S J A C K0829@GMAIL.COM.

THANKS.

OKAY.

WE GOT ELECTIONS.

WE GOT LITERACY EDUCATION.

WHAT? OKAY.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY EDUCATION? I CAN, I CAN DO A LOT OF STUFF.

AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T HAVE TO DO TOO MUCH WITH COMPUTERS.

I DON'T EVEN HAVE AN IPHONE.

I DON'T DO FACEBOOK.

SO LET ME, LET ME LOOK UP.

THE ONLY THING THAT I HAD NOTED FOR EDUCATION WAS REALLY AROUND VOTER EDUCATION, UM, AND, AND REGISTRATION ACTIVATION.

OKAY.

SO THAT THAT'S DIFFERENT.

YEAH.

OKAY.

I KNOW WE, WE HAD SUBJECTS ON, UM, UM, NON-PROFITS AND MENTAL HEALTH AND ELDER CARE.

SO I'M NOT SURE WHERE THE, THE OTHER COMPONENT OF EDUCATION CAME FROM AND ALL OF THOSE HAVE SOME EDUCATION COMPONENT.

SO YEAH, I DON'T THINK IT WAS, UH, UM, OUR MINUTES, THE THREE TOP THINGS WAS THE COMMUNITY.

I KNOW WE'RE ON THE RESOURCE CENTER.

AND THEN WITHIN THAT, THOSE, THOSE BUBBLES, BUBBLES WAS COVID-19 INFORMATION ELDERCARE.

AND THEN, UM, THE, I SAY VOTER, I ALREADY SAID THE VOTER.

AND I THINK THE ONLY THING THAT WE HAD LEFT IN UNDER THE RESOURCE PIECE OF IT WAS EITHER A NONPROFIT ELDER CARE OR MENTAL HEALTH.

AND IT MAY ALL GO TOGETHER, BUT THOSE ARE JUST SOME OF THE THINGS I NOTED THAT WE HADN'T TOUCHED ON.

OKAY.

SO NONPROFITS DANDY, BUT WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH NON-PROFITS? WE'LL FIGURE THAT OUT.

WHEN WE GOT SOMEONE TO HANDLE IT, WHAT WE'RE NOT DOING IS HAVING ME DECIDE, LIKE, I'LL BE SOMEONE'S BOSS AT THE OFFICE.

I'M NOT ANYONE'S BOSS HERE.

MADAM CHAIR.

YES.

MA'AM.

I CAN PROVIDE ME WITH THE LIST OF LOCAL FAITH-BASED AND OTHER NONPROFITS AND MAYBE A LITTLE OUTDATED BECAUSE THINGS CHANGE ALL THE TIME, BUT AT LEAST IT WOULD GIVE YOU A STARTING POINT.

AND THAT'S, IT PROBABLY INCLUDES LIKE THE WHOLE CLINIC AND SOME OTHER ONES THAT YOU MENTIONED ON THAT SATURDAY, BUT I DEFINITELY CAN GET THAT LIST FOR YOU.

SO IF YOU'LL SEND ME AN EMAIL SO THAT I DON'T FORGET, I'M WRITING THIS DOWN TOO.

AND THAT, YOU KNOW, AS WE THINK, SO MINDY TO THAT QUESTION OF WHAT IS THE RESOURCE CENTER? HOW DO WE DO IT? THIS IS THE KIND OF THING NON-PROFITS MAKES ME THINK OF LINK SHARING AND THINGS.

RIGHT? YEP.

UM, YOU PROPOSE IS ALL I CAN SUGGEST, YOU KNOW, WHAT, UH, HOW DO YOU THINK IT SHOULD WORK? UM, WELL IT DEPENDS ON HOW WE WANT IT TO DO IT BECAUSE WE CAN, IT COULD BE AN EXTENSION OF THE CITY OF GARLAND WEBSITE, WHICH ALREADY HAS A LOT OF LINKS IN ITSELF.

BUT DO WE ALREADY TRYING TO DUPLICATE THAT OR DO WE WANT OUR OWN SPIN-OFF WEBSITE WHERE IT'S, WHERE PEOPLE KNOW, OKAY, THIS IS WHERE THE RESEARCH ARE.

CAUSE I DON'T WANT TO GO ON THE CITY OF BERLIN WEBSITE, WHICH HAS SO MANY DIFFERENT PAGES, SO WE DON'T WANT A SEPARATE WEBSITE.

OKAY.

I THINK, AND THAT'S WHY I LEAN TOWARDS SOCIAL BECAUSE I CAN, YOU CAN LOOK AT A FACEBOOK PAGE, FIND WHAT YOU NEED

[00:20:01]

AND GO TO FOLLOW LINKS FROM THERE, WHERE YOU CAN NAVIGATE, LIKE THE CITY WEBSITE IS PRETTY.

YEAH.

YEAH.

YOU KNOW WHAT, BUT DO YOU THINK THAT THAT'S NOT, YOU THINK SOCIAL MEDIA IS NOT ENOUGH? UM, NO, I DON'T THINK IT'S ENOUGH JUST BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T HAVE A SOCIAL MEDIA PROFILE OR PAGE OR A WAY TO ACCESS IT.

UM, I'M THINKING PERHAPS, MAYBE JUST ONE PAGE ON THE CITY OF BERLIN WEBSITE.

I HAVE TO GET THAT INFORMATION FROM YOU GUYS HAVE DON'T YOU GUYS HAVE SOME PRESENCE THERE ALREADY? I CAN'T REMEMBER.

THE ONLY THING I'VE SEEN IS IN THE BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS SECTION.

OKAY.

I HAVE TO TALK TO DOROTHY ABOUT THAT.

OKAY.

I WILL FOLLOW UP.

THAT'LL BE MINE.

YEAH.

OKAY.

AND THAT, THAT IS THAT, THAT, AND THAT, I MEAN, SO TO ME THAT IS THE, UH, BEGINNING JUST GIVING SOMEONE SOMETHING THAT THEY DON'T HAVE TO NAVIGATE MULTIPLE PAGES TO GET TO, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, I, THIS MORNING I SAW THE MORNING NEWS ARTICLE AND I WAS LIKE, I KNOW ABOUT THIS, I'VE SEEN THE NEWS RELEASE BECAUSE IT WAS FORWARD.

IT WAS, YOU KNOW, IT WAS IN THE EMAIL.

BUT WHEN I WENT TO THE CITY'S COVID PAGE, IT DIDN'T HAVE THE INFORMATION.

AND I WAS LIKE, OKAY.

SO LET ME GO BACK TO THE EMAIL AND GET IT.

SO I CAN INCLUDE THAT LINK IN MY SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS.

SO THERE'S KIND OF, YOU KNOW, THE MORE PAGES YOU HAVE, THE LESS LIKELY THEY GET UP, THEY ALL GET UPDATED.

THEY CERTAINLY DON'T ALL GET UP TO DATE THE SAME TIME.

AND, YOU KNOW, I WANT TO MAKE IT TIMELY AND USEFUL AND EASY.

THE CHALLENGE ABOUT HAVING IT ON THE CITY OF GARLAND WEBSITE IS WE MIGHT NOT HAVE DIRECT CONTROL WHEN, WHEN WE CAN UPDATE IT.

AND IF WE CAN UPDATE IT, WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE TO RELY ON WHOEVER THE WEBMASTER.

YES, VERY MUCH.

SO, WHICH IS WHY I ALWAYS GO TO SOCIAL AND I KNOW IT'S NOT THE FIX ALL AND THEY CAN'T BE, YOU KNOW, SO WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT ALL THE CHANNELS THAT WE WANT TO USE IT, YOU KNOW, BIG NEWS WE CAN PUT IN THE CITY PRESS, BUT IT CAN'T BE PAGES AND PAGES AND PAGES, YOU KNOW, IT'S, UH, HOW MUCH SPACE CAN WE HAVE IN THE CITY PRESS RENEE VERY LITTLE BECAUSE IS BECAUSE ALL DEPARTMENTS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY EACH TIME TO PUT SOMETHING IN THE CITY PRESS.

SO IF YOU'VE GOT ALL YOUR DEPARTMENTS, YOU KNOW, KIND OF RALLYING FOR THAT SPACE, AND THEN THE REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS THAT MAYBE THE CITY MANAGER OR THE MAYOR, OR WHATEVER WANTS TO GET OUT, IT'S NOT A LOT OF SPACE.

EVEN WHEN I DO ELECTIONS, SHE'LL TELL ME, YOU KNOW, MAYBE COULDN'T MAYBE WE COULD SPOTLIGHT, UH, AN AREA OR, OR A NONPROFIT OR A TOPIC OR SOMETHING EACH MONTH, EACH TIME.

AND EVEN IF IT'S ONLY A HUNDRED WORDS AND WE CAN HAVE A QR CODE THAT, YOU KNOW, COULD GO FROM THERE TOO, FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT WERE COMFORTABLE USING THAT.

UM, AND THEN WE CAN DO IT IN SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND SO THAT COVERS A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS.

HOW ABOUT THE NEWSLETTERS? BECAUSE I KNOW WE GET, I GET TONS OF THOSE.

IS THERE A NEWSLETTER WE COULD GET IN ON? UM, WELL I KNOW THE SENIOR, THE SENIORS HOUSE, SILVER, SILVER SCOOP.

THAT'S THE ONLY ONE I'M REALLY FAMILIAR WITH IT.

BUT, UM, MS. MR. MONTERO IN PARKS CAN PROBABLY TELL ME MORE ABOUT THAT.

AS PERSONS LOCKED DOES SEVERAL DIFFERENT THINGS.

WE MAY HAVE TO TALK TO, UM, DILLY WILLIAMS OVER IN PARKS AND SEE WHO'S THE RIGHT PERSON TO SEE WHAT NEWSLETTER STUFF THEY'VE PUT OUT AND HOW, HOW THERE MIGHT BE.

UM, IF THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO JUST INSERT SOME INFORMATION.

YEAH.

WE'LL HAVE TO WORK THROUGH DELAY.

AND LET ME JUST PUT THAT DOWN AS SOMETHING FOR ME TO ASK HER ABOUT, YOU KNOW, ANYTHING, IT WILL JUST BE FOR A SMALL SPOTLIGHT, LIKE YEAH.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T THINK WE DON'T WANT TO REINVENT THE WHEEL.

WE DO WANT TO AMPLIFY INFORMATION THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCESSING OR PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT.

WE DON'T HAVE THE BANDWIDTH TO DEDICATE A PERSON TO CREATING A NEWSLETTER.

WE DON'T WANT TO EXHAUST ANYONE, BUT WE DO WANT TO HAVE IMPACT.

AND, YOU KNOW, GIVEN THOSE PARAMETERS, I THINK WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO GET INFORMATION TO PEOPLE.

MADAM VICE CHAIR, YOU ARE A PENSIVE AND SILENT.

I THINK JENNIFER RAISER HER,

[00:25:01]

HER, HER BODY LANGUAGE INDICATES THAT SHE'S TRYING TO CHIME IN.

JENNIFER.

DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING? SO MARVIN, NO DUMPING.

PLEASE TAKE CARE.

I CAN NOT UNDERSTOOD.

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU.

AND I KNOW WE ALL ARE TAKE CARE.

WOW.

YEAH.

I'M WORRIED ABOUT HER.

OKAY.

MISS STEPHANIE.

WE CAN CONTINUE EVEN THOUGH SHE DROPPED.

IS THAT OKAY? YEAH, WE, WE, WE HAVE WITH THE SHOWER KIT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS.

ALL RIGHT.

YEAH.

UM, WHAT WAS YOUR QUESTION? UH, MANAGER.

I SAID YOU ARE PENSIVE AND SILENT.

I'M LISTENING, I'M LISTENING.

AND NOW YOU'RE TALKING.

WHAT AREA WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE? WELL, I THINK THAT YOU HAD HAD VOLUNTEERED VOLUNTOLD ME.

I SAID, YOU WOULDN'T BE REALLY WONDERFUL, BUT I DID NOT KNOW YOUR BANDWIDTH.

UM, AND, AND THAT'S A TRUE STATEMENT.

SO ELDER CARE COMMUNITY AND MENTAL HEALTH IS KIND OF, I THINK, WHAT YOU WERE THINKING.

UM, MY AREA AND I DO HAVE AN INTEREST IN THAT.

SO, UM, AND I FELT THAT THE PRIORITIES THAT WE SAID AT THE RETREAT WAS THE COVID-19 INFORMATION AND ELDER CARE, UH, AND OF COURSE, VOTER EDUCATION BECAUSE OF THE, UM, IN REGISTRATION BECAUSE OF THE UPCOMING ELECTION IN MAY.

SO, UM, ELDER CARE COMMUNITY IN HEALTH AND MENTAL HEALTH CAN GET SOME LEGS UNDER THEM AND BETTER UNDERSTAND, UM, THAT BUCKET OF RESOURCE INFORMATION.

COOL.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

BUT I WOULD ASK IS, IS THERE ANYONE THAT IS WILLING TO PARTNER IF, IF THEY WANT IT, THAT IS OF INTEREST TO THEM? I THINK WE STILL HAVE ROOM FOR PARTNERSHIPS ON THESE.

ABSOLUTELY.

WOULD ANYONE LIKE TO ASSIST WITH THAT PROJECT? ALL FEED YOU STUFF ON MENTAL HEALTH? I CAN HELP WITH THAT.

THANK YOU.

WAS THE COVID 19 ALSO YOU, UM, BLUE LIZARD AND TAKE UP.

OH, OKAY.

WE STILL DON'T HAVE, THAT WAS, UH, LIKE OUR NUMBER ONE PARENT I'LL HELP WITH COVID.

OKAY.

DO YOU WANT TO LEAD ON THAT OR YOU WANT TO JUST HELP? UH, WHATEVER'S NEEDED.

I CAN LEAVE HER FALL.

THANK YOU.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

YOU KNOW, THE, THE CHALLENGE IS ALWAYS GETTING SOMEONE TO LEAVE.

RENEE HAS ALL OF THAT INFORMATION.

SO IF YOU CAN JUST HELP PULL IT TOGETHER SO THAT WE CAN SHARE IT.

YEAH.

AND I'LL TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHO'S REALLY ACCESSING AND WHAT AREAS MIGHT BE MISSED AND THEN TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN REACH THEM.

BECAUSE YEAH, AS Y'ALL BEEN TALKING, I'VE BEEN GOING OVER THE CITY OF GARLANDS COVID-19 SITE AND IT'S, IT'S AMAZING, BUT YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW TO GO THERE AND YOU'VE GOTTA KNOW WHERE TO GO.

AND, AND LIKE WITH STEPHANIE, YOU KNOW, UM, I MIGHT NEED, SHE AND I MIGHT NEED TO WORK TOGETHER.

WELL, HOW DO WE REACH THOSE THAT CAN'T NAVIGATE? YEAH, EXACTLY WHAT I WENT TO WHEN YOU MENTIONED, IT'S A LOT OF RESOURCE INFORMATION OUT THERE, BUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE ELDER CARE COMMUNITY, THEY MAY NOT, THERE MAY BE SOME THAT ARE NOT ABLE TO ACCESS IT OR DON'T, THEY'RE NOT, THEY DON'T.

YEAH.

AND WE MIGHT ALMOST HAVE TO REACH OUT TO THAT THEY'RE YOUNGER CONNECTIONS.

AND SO THERE'S ALSO THE, THE CAPABILITY OF BEING ABLE TO LIKE PROVIDE A PDF OR SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, THAT'S ANOTHER WAY, ESPECIALLY LIKE, IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE LIKE IN RESIDENTIAL FACILITIES.

YEAH.

WAIT, WE MAY ALMOST HAVE TO SAY IF YOU KNOW, SOMEONE IN THIS SITUATION WHERE YOU TAKE THIS INFORMATION AND GET IT TO THEM.

YEAH.

KNOW.

YEAH.

UM, I'M PART OF THE DEMOCRATIC AND, UM, THEY SEND A LINK, YOU KNOW, FOR INFORMATION ON IT.

AND THEY SAID, AND I JUST CLICKED IT AND IT GAVE ME ALL THE INFORMATION.

SO WE COULD DO THAT TO THE DIFFERENT CLUBS LIKE I COULD DO ONCE YOU GOT THE INFORMATION, GIVE IT TO ME, I'LL PASS IT TO KIWANIS.

AND THE OTHER CLUBS I BELONG TO, BUT HISPANIC ASSOCIATION.

SO WE'RE GOING

[00:30:01]

TO ADD CLUB CONNECTIONS AND, AND PUT THIS ELVIA THERE, ELVIA.

THAT IS A FABULOUS IDEA.

THANK YOU.

BECAUSE ALL OF THIS INFORMATION, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, WE'RE TRYING TO GET IT TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE IT QUESTION FOR YOU, RENEE.

UM, OR JUST IN GENERAL, ANYONE MIGHT KNOW THIS, BUT WHEN I THINK ABOUT THOSE ELDER COMMUNITIES, UH, WHERE THEY DON'T DO EMAIL, THEY DON'T DO PHONE TECHNOLOGY.

UM, THE ONLY PHONE THEY MAY DO IS, YOU KNOW, REGULAR LANDLINE.

UM, IS THERE ANY AUTOMATED TYPE SYSTEM THAT THE CITY HAS THAT CAN DISSEMINATE INFORMATION? UM, LIKE A RECORDED MESSAGE THAT MAY HAVE THAT? I'M SORRY.

GO AHEAD, STEPHANIE.

I'M SORRY.

NO, I WAS JUST GONNA SAY SO WE CAN TRY TO TAP THOSE FOLKS IN THOSE TYPES OF SCENARIOS.

I KNOW SEVERAL, I WILL FIND OUT IF THERE'S MS. SYLVIA HAS GOT HER HAND UP.

MY SISTER-IN-LAW IS IN ONE IN DALLAS AND SHE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT TECHNOLOGY.

SHE JUST HAS A FLIP PHONE.

SHE CAN ANSWER IT, FORGET MESSAGES.

UM, BUT AT THEIR PLACE, THEY'LL EITHER ANNOUNCE IT OR THEY'RE PUT, THEY'LL PUT SIGNS LIKE IN THE CAFETERIA AND PLACES LIKE THAT, WHERE THEY, THE EXERCISE ROOM WHERE THEY'LL SEE IT.

YEAH.

THAT'S WHY I WAS SAYING IT MIGHT BE CREATING A PDF OR SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, WHEN IT COMES TO THAT, I'M SURE THAT WE COULD DO IT'S A LOT EASIER BECAUSE IT'S NOT SO LIVING AND ACTIVE TO CREATE A PRINT.

YOU KNOW, MAYBE TWO-SIDED SOMETHING THAT HAS INFO AND TO GET INTO THE SENIOR COMMUNITIES, THE SENIOR CENTER IS STILL CLOSED, RIGHT? YES.

MA'AM MR. MONTERO, YOU KNOW, HE, HE HAS, UM, HE HAS, UM, AN ONGOING CONNECTION TO THE SENIOR BOARD, THE SENIOR CITIZENS ADVISORY COMMISSION.

SO THAT MAY BE SOME WAY TO PARTNER.

I'M NOT SURE.

AND THEN I WANTED TO TELL STEPHANIE THAT WE ARE AWARE THAT WE HAVE SOME SENIORS, LIKE YOU SAID, WHO DON'T DO ANY TECHNOLOGY.

AND WE'VE EVEN HAD ONE PERSON CALL AND SAID, I CAN'T EVEN LEAVE MY HOUSE.

HOW WILL I GET THIS? AND SO WE'RE KEEPING RIGHT NOW AN INTERNAL LIST OF THOSE FOLKS AND, UM, STAFF WILL FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GO TO THEM.

SO WE'RE, WE'RE DEVELOPING LIST WITHIN THE CITY ON HOW TO GO TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T EVEN LEAVE THEIR HOMES EVERY DAY.

AND I GUESS WHEN THEY GET FOOD, THEY GET IT FROM MEALS ON WHEELS OR SOMEBODY.

SO MEALS ON WHEELS MIGHT BE A PARTNER TO FIND SOME OF THOSE MEALS ON WHEELS WOULD BE A WONDERFUL FIRST, JUST THE THOUGHT THAT MEALS ON WHEELS MIGHT KNOW WHO IS CONFINED TO THEIR HOME WITHOUT ANY FAMILY MEMBERS OR CONTEXT.

AND THEN THE SENIOR SOURCE MIGHT BE ANOTHER PARTNER.

AND I I'VE TALKED TO BOTH OF THEM TODAY FOR WORK.

I KNOW THAT THE CITY IS COMING UP WITH A LIST FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T EVEN COME OUT, EVEN IF THEY HAVE THE INFORMATION.

HOW DOES THE CITY KNOW ABOUT THOSE THAT ARE THE INTERNAL LIST THAT IS BEING CAPTURED? HOW ARE YOU ALL AWARE OF THOSE, THOSE FOLKS THEY'VE CALLED US AND SAID, YOU KNOW, I'M 95 YEARS OLD.

I CAN'T LEAVE MY HOUSE AND I DON'T HAVE ANY FAMILY.

HOW DO I GET THE SHOT? THEY'VE CALLED US.

AND WE'RE, WE'RE KEEPING, UM, ALYSSA THOSE PEOPLE, BECAUSE THEY'RE, THEY'RE WAY ABOVE THE AGE REQUIREMENT.

SO NOW IT'S JUST, WHO, WHO DO WE HAVE THAT WILL GO OUT TO THEM? YEAH, THEY'RE THERE.

SO ONE A THAT THEY JUST NEED TO BE A RIGHT, BUT THEY ARE NOT FORGOTTEN AT ALL.

OKAY.

AND RELATED TO MEALS ON WHEELS, ANOTHER ORGANIZATION I WORK WITH IS GOING THROUGH THE, UM, THE FOOD BANKS, UM, TO CAPTURE PEOPLE THAT WAY, PROVIDING SOME KIND OF FLYER OR SOMETHING, ABSOLUTELY BACK TO THE NONPROFIT WORLD.

MINDY EMAIL.

GOOD.

SAM DOES AN AWFUL LOT OF CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE NEEDING FOOD FROM THE PANTRY.

SO A FLYER OR A PAPER, ANYTHING THERE, BECAUSE MANY OF THOSE PEOPLE ARE MAYBE UNHOUSED AS WELL.

SO INFORMATION THAT WE CAN GET THEM, YOU KNOW, THAT THEY'RE AT, WE WILL FIGURE OUT THE WAYS, BUT THAT'S WHY I WANT PEOPLE TO OWN THE INFO.

AND YOU MIGHT SAY, KILLER LANG, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? RIGHT.

YOU'RE GOING TO TELL US WHAT TO DO.

I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU.

WHAT I AM GOING TO DO IS FOCUS ON ITEMS. SEE THE CELL, WHAT, JOIN ME, EVERYONE GET FOCUSED.

NOW THESE

[00:35:01]

THINGS, WHEN I SAID, I WANT SOMEONE TO OWN IT.

I'M NOT SAYING YOU'LL DO ALL THE WORK, LEAD THE CHARGE IN THAT AREA.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO FAIL.

I WANT TO WORK ON THE MULTICULTURAL AND I WILL BE SENDING EVERY BIT OF INFORMATION.

I HAVE TO EACH OF THESE OTHER AREAS AS WELL, BECAUSE IT'S LIKE, IT'S NOT LIKE ANYONE IS OUT, IT'S OUT THERE ALONE.

BUT WHAT I WOULD LIKE US TO DO BEFORE THE NEXT MEETING, IF THAT MAKES SENSE, IS BUILD AN OUTLINE FOR WHAT WE THINK OUR AREA SHOULD HOLD.

IF THERE'S INFORMATION THAT WE NEED TO GET OUT IMMEDIATELY, LIKE THE COVID INFO PUT TOGETHER SOME BULLETS SO THAT WE CAN START SHARING STUFF.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE ACCESS TO A LOT OF INFORMATION AS IT COMES IN.

LET'S NOT WAIT UNTIL IT'S FULLY BAKED, BUT ESPECIALLY ON THE COVID STUFF, THIS IS SUCH A BIG MOVING TARGET.

AND THE COUNTY AND THE CITY OF DALLAS ARE SNIPING AT EACH OTHER.

AND GARLAND THAT ELL IS QUIETLY DOING AN OUTSTANDING JOB.

LET'S MAKE SOME NOISE ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING, YOU KNOW, AND IN EACH OF THESE AREAS, VOTER REGISTRATION, I W I WENT AND READ UP IN THE FIRST CLASS.

SO I'M READY TO GO.

AND I KNOW I'M NOT ALONE.

WHO ELSE IS THE VOLUNTEER DEPUTY REGISTRAR HERE? AND I THINK THIS YEAR IS TOO.

I WAS ABOUT TO SAY, I KNOW, UM, A VERY LONG TIME AGO, I WAS, AS OF NOW, IF YOU HAVE TO REDO IT, THEN I HAVEN'T REDONE IT.

BUT I WAS A VERY LONG TIME AGO.

THEY HAVE AN ONLINE.

NOW THEY HAVE AN ONLINE CLASS.

I WENT TO THE IN-PERSON ONE LAST WEEK, BUT THEY HAVE AN ONLINE CLASS.

IT'S LIKE A 40 MINUTE PRESENTATION AND YOU RECEIVE CERTIFIED.

SO IF YOU WANT TO, YOU CAN DO THAT.

AND I'LL FORWARD YOU THAT INFORMATION.

AND, YOU KNOW, THAT'S INFORMATION WE CAN SHARE.

YOU KNOW, THE DALLAS COUNTY ELECTIONS HAS SET UP A BUNCH OF STUFF IN THE EMAIL LATELY, BUT YOU KNOW, MORE THAN ANYTHING, YOU KNOW, BE THINKING ABOUT HOW YOU CAN SHARE A PERSONALLY, WE WILL PULL TOGETHER A FACEBOOK PAGE.

THAT IS NOT A BIG CHALLENGE.

MADAM CHAIR, JENNIFER'S NOT ON THE CALL ANYMORE, BUT I THINK MAYBE MR. PICKETT CAN REMIND ME IF I HEARD THIS CORRECTLY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WHEN I CAME ON TO ASSIST THE COMMISSION, I RECALL SOMEBODY SAYING THERE WAS A FACEBOOK PAGE, FACEBOOK GROUP, I THINK, OH, IT'S NOT, I DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, CAUSE I DON'T DO SOCIAL MEDIA.

SO IT WAS DESIGNED JUST FOR THE CMC PEOPLE TO SHARE INFORMATION AMONG OURSELVES.

IF WE COULD USE THAT GROUP, THAT'S NOT A PROBLEM EITHER.

IF EMAIL IS NOT YOUR JAM, I UNDERSTAND IT.

I'M TERRIBLE WITH EMAIL BECAUSE I HAVE FIVE DIFFERENT EMAIL ACCOUNTS AND WHO HAS TIME.

WE CAN DEFINITELY REPURPOSE THAT GROUP.

IF YOU GUYS WANT TO USE THAT TO SHARE INFORMATION AND IT CAN BE CLOSED PRIVATE TO US, BUT A PAGE THAT'S COMMUNITY FACING.

YEAH, THAT WOULD BE WISE.

I THINK WE EVEN, WE TOUCHED ON IT A BIT BEFORE, TOO, AROUND MEETING THAT.

UM, I GO TO OTHER COMMUNITY PAGES AND SEE WHAT'S GOING ON ALL THE TIME AND, UM, WE'RE DARK, RIGHT? WE DON'T, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING.

UM, UNLESS YOU GO TO THE, UH, THE CITY HAS A PAGE, THE CITY HAS A BUNCH OF THEM, YOU KNOW? YEAH.

WHAT THE COMMISSION IS DOING.

RIGHT.

SO THAT'S WHAT I MEAN ON THAT PIECE OF IT.

SO, UM, I JUST THINK, I KNOW VONDA STILL HAD THE CREDENTIALS FOR IT AND SHE WAS WILLING TO TURN IT OVER TO ANYONE WHO WAS WILLING TO EMBRACE THAT PIECE OF IT.

SO OF THE NATURALS FOR THE GROUP, CORRECT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

SO SHE WOULD HAVE TO TURN THEM OVER AFTER THE RESIGN, THE COALITION, I THINK THOSE NEED TO ACTUALLY RESIDE WITH THE CITY AND THEN WE NEED TO HAVE ACCESS.

YOU KNOW, EVERYONE CAN BE AN EDITOR, BUT I DON'T WANT TO OWN IT.

AND I DON'T THINK THAT ANY COMMISSION MEMBERS SHOULD OWN IT.

YOU KNOW, ADMINISTRATOR RATES MEAN THAT YOU CAN DO ALL KINDS OF THINGS.

EDITOR MEANS YOU CAN CREATE CONTENT AND SHARE CONTENT, WHICH IS GOOD ENOUGH.

RENEE, DO YOU HAVE ACCESS TO, TO THE, OKAY.

SHE SAID, SHE'S NOT ON SOCIAL.

DID ANYONE AT THE CITY PERSONALLY, BUT FOR YOU GUYS, THAT'S FINE.

IT'S JUST PERSONALLY, I DON'T USE IT FOR WORK.

THIS IS WORK.

SO IF YOU WANT IT, ME DOING SOMETHING, YES, I WOULD DO IT.

WOW.

WELL, WHAT I WANT IS FOR INDIVIDUALS NOT TO OWN COMMISSION THINGS.

OKAY.

AND THAT'S OKAY.

AND I'M

[00:40:01]

HAPPY TO PULL THAT IN KARMA.

IT CAN BE, YOU KNOW, IT CAN BE SOMEONE ON YOUR TEAM.

IT'S ONLY CARMEL BECAUSE I AM IN, I AM INEPT.

IT'S NOT BECAUSE SHE SHOULD BE DOING IT.

BUT IF SOMEBODY THERE CAN TAKE THAT OWNERSHIP, I'M A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.

TEARS, VOLUNTEERS SHOULD NOT HAVE ASSETS THAT ARE THE PUBLIC FACING OR IN ANY WAY CONTROL IMPRESSIONS OF THE CITY BRAND.

I CAN'T GO CREATE, I COULD, BUT IT WOULD BE WRONG TO NOT BE GOING AND CREATING A CMC PAGE.

YES MA'AM.

I UNDERSTAND.

AND SO I'M HAPPY TO PULL THAT BACK IN AND I'M HAPPY TO, ONCE IT'S PUT TOGETHER, DO UPDATES AND SO FORTH AND, UM, IT'S NOT BECAUSE I CAN'T DO IT.

I JUST CHOOSE NOT.

THAT'S AN EXCELLENT CHOICE.

YEAH.

NOT PERSONALLY, BUT PROFESSIONALLY.

YES, I AM HERE FOR YOU GUYS.

OKAY.

SO HOW DOES EVERYONE FEEL ABOUT THAT? YES.

I'LL REACH OUT TO VONDA AND GET THE CREDENTIALS.

AND SO THANK YOU.

AND THEN WE'LL CHANGE ALL THE PASSWORDS.

YES.

MA'AM JUST LIKE WE WOULD DO, IF WE WERE, IF AN EMPLOYEE WERE LEAVING FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THAT WE DO, IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE OPERATE EXTREMELY ETHICALLY AND WITH A GREAT DEAL OF TRANSPARENCY.

AND I THINK THAT WILL BE, YOU KNOW, FROM A BRANDING STANDPOINT, THAT'S A HUGE BREATH OF FRESH AIR AS WE BEGIN COMMUNICATING BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL BEGIN TO TRUST THAT WE'RE SHARING INFORMATION IN A TIMELY FASHION, EVEN IF IT'S ONLY A LITTLE TINY BIT, DON'T THINK THAT WE HAVE TO WRITE NOVELS FOR ALL OF THESE THINGS, BUT EVERYTHING THAT WE SHARE AS SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE HASN'T SEEN YET, MOST LIKELY, BECAUSE WE ARE CONNECTED TO ALL THESE THINGS THAT ARE LIKE, OH, THAT'S REALLY COOL.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, I, I SPEND, EVERY TIME I LOOK AT ONE OF THE NEWSLETTERS I GET AT OR ATTEND A MEETING, OR, YOU KNOW, THERE ARE THINGS THAT I LEARNED THAT I KNOW SOMEONE ELSE WOULD BE INTERESTED IN KNOWING.

AND AS WE THINK ABOUT THE PART WHERE WE TALKED ABOUT GROUPS, WE WERE CONNECTED TO WHICH WE'RE NOT EVEN GETTING INTO TODAY, YOU KNOW, SHARING INFORMATION BECAUSE SHARON, I KNOW YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND THE RETREAT, SO WE REALLY DO NEED TO CATCH YOU UP, BUT THE MINUTES ARE GREAT.

AND YOU KNOW, WE TALKED ABOUT, I KNOW YOU HAVE THE NAACP CONNECTION.

UM, YOU KNOW, I LIKE, I DID NOT REALIZE THAT THE GIRL AND THE NAACP, THE FACEBOOK TOOK THEIR PAGE UNTIL I WAS HUNTING FOR THE DETAILS.

AND THEN I SAW THE ARTICLE IN THE PAPER AND I WAS LIKE, WHAT? YOU KNOW, SO THERE'S SO MUCH INFORMATION FROM EACH OF THE ORGANIZATIONS THAT PEOPLE ARE WORKING WITH, THAT WE CAN AMPLIFY AND SHARE.

WE DON'T NEED TO, YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT CREATING IT.

IT'S SOMETIMES I GET EMAILS AS A MEMBER.

SOMETIMES I KNOW SOMETIMES, YOU KNOW, IT'S ANYTHING WE CAN DO TO HELP GET MESSAGES OUT, I THINK IS GOOD.

YES.

WHAT AM I MISSING? SO MADAM CHAIR, JUST SO THAT I'M CLEAR, YOU HAD SAID ALL OF THOSE THAT ARE TAKING ON THE RESOURCE CENTER, UM, THE DIFFERENT ELEMENTS OF WHAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE IN THE RESOURCE CENTER, AROUND THE COVID, THE ELDER CARE, THE NONPROFIT, AND THEN VOTER REGISTRATION AND EDUCATION.

UM, AND YOU SAID YOU WANTED US TO BUILD A SKETCH OR WHAT DID YOU ASK US TO HAVE FOR OUR NEXT WEEK, AN OUTLINE OF WHAT YOU THOUGHT WE NEEDED TO BE DELIVERING IN THAT AREA AND BULLETS FOR THE FIRST BIT OF INFORMATION WE WERE GOING TO SHARE, BUT THE OUTLINE BEING ALL, YOU KNOW, JUST, JUST ALL THE THINGS THAT COULD BE THERE.

IT'S NOT GOING TO BE GROWN UP YET, BUT WE'VE GOT TO START SOMEWHERE.

THE FIRST THING THAT YOU MIGHT WANT TO SHARE, IF YOU WERE DOING COVID WOULD BE THE NEXT TIME, THE MEGA SITES GOING TO BE DOING SHOTS OR THE LINK THAT PEOPLE LAY THEM.

17,000 PEOPLE WHERE I'M A, I'M A LIST RENEE.

SO 17,000 PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT IT, BUT GARLAND'S GOT ALMOST 300,000 PEOPLE, 242,000 RESIDENTS.

SO, YOU KNOW, IT MIGHT BE THE FIRST THING THAT WE SHARE ABOUT THAT IS ONE, A

[00:45:01]

ONE D AND HERE'S THE LINK.

BUT IF YOU THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT THE REST OF WHAT YOU WANTED TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT COVID I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AFTER ONE A AND ONE B, BECAUSE I PROBABLY EVERYONE HERE FALLS INTO THAT.

AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHEN A SHOT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ME.

I THINK IT'S PROBABLY SUMMER, BUT I BET THERE'S BETTER INFORMATION SOMEWHERE.

YOU KNOW, NOW IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT SENIORS, WELL, FOR THEM, THEY'RE PROBABLY ALL IN ONE A OR ONE B.

SO IT'S EVEN MORE CRUCIAL TO THEM AS, AND YOU KNOW, WHAT I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IS THIS IS MY PLAN FOR WHAT I THINK GOES ARE NON-PROFIT RESOURCES.

WELL, THERE'S NONPROFITS FROM THE SIDE, YOU KNOW, AND I WORK IN NONPROFIT.

THERE'S NONPROFIT FROM THIS SIDE OF HERE OR PLACES THAT ARE REFERRALS.

DO YOU NEED FOOD? DO YOU NEED MONEY WITH YOUR, DO YOU NEED HELP WITH RENTAL ASSISTANCE GAS BUT THERE'S ALSO, DO YOU NEED A PLACE TO VOLUNTEER? THERE'S ALSO, DO YOU NEED A PLACE TO TAKE DONATIONS? SO THAT'S SOME OF THE THINGS THAT COULD BE A NON-PROFITS, BUT THERE'S MORE, WHAT ELSE COULD BE A NONPROFITS? MINDY? OH, I HAVE A LOT.

DON'T WORRY.

BUT YOU KNOW, BUT YOU KNOW, THIS WORKS FOR YOU.

YES.

DOES THIS, DOES THIS FRAMEWORK WORK FOR YOU? OKAY, LIZ, I KNOW THAT I DON'T EVEN NEED TO ASK YOU ABOUT LITERACY BECAUSE THAT HAS BEEN YOUR PASSION AND, AND YOU MADE IT YOUR LIFE, BUT, YOU KNOW, SO WHEN I SAY AN OUTLINE AND YOUR FIRST PIECE OF CONTENT, WHATEVER IT IS, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT YOU PROBABLY DO.

SARAH.

WE KNOW YOUR FIRST PIECE IS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO RUN, RUN, THEY JUST DID THE TRAINING AND SHE'S GOING TO SEND THE INFO IN CASE YOU MISSED IT.

HERE IT IS.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAME TO YOUR TRAINING WITH ME? IT WAS JUST TWO.

AND THEN ONE PERSON WAS ON THE PHONE LISTENING.

AND, UM, ALTHOUGH WE REALLY STILL KNOW WHO THAT PERSON IS BECAUSE WE BOTH HAVE MINE'S LIKE RECORDERS, BUT, UH, ONE PERSON WAS LISTENING TO PEOPLE WERE ACTUALLY PARTICIPATING.

AND, UM, IT ONLY LASTS.

IT'S ONLY ABOUT A 40 MINUTE MEETING AND THE RECORDINGS ON THE WEBSITE.

SO WE SHARE THAT TOO, BUT I'LL, I'M GOING TO SHARE THE POWERPOINT WITH CORE SHOWER, AND THEN I'M GOING TO SEND HER THE LINK FOR THE RECORDING.

SO IF SOMEBODY WANTED TO GO AND LISTEN TO WHAT WE SAID, AS WE MOVE THROUGH IT, THEY COULD DO THAT TOO.

AND YOU COULD PUSH IT OUT.

HOWEVER YOU WANT TO PUSH IT OUT.

OF COURSE, WHATEVER YOUR DECISION IS, HOW THE GROUP COULD HELP THEM PUSH IT OUT TO FIND OUT IF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN RUNNING, BECAUSE THE DEADLINE IS FAST APPROACHING.

UM, THE APP DEMO TO HAVE APPLICATIONS AND TO RUN IS FEBRUARY 12TH.

UM, I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE DON'T COME IN AT FIVE O'CLOCK CAUSE THEN I'LL DECLINE IT BECAUSE I DON'T, I MEAN, FIVE O'CLOCK IS A DEADLINE AND I, AFTER FIVE O'CLOCK I DON'T DO ANYTHING.

I JUST PUT THE CARD ON IT AND TURN IT.

YEAH.

IT'S LIKE THEY MISSED IT.

YEAH.

BUT YOU KNOW, REALISTICALLY, IT WOULD BE GREAT TO GET SOME CAPTION OUT NEXT WEEK OR TOMORROW.

YEAH.

I WOULD SAY THIS WEEK, EXCEPT IT'S THURSDAY.

SO IF YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE QUICKLY.

YEAH.

ALSO THE TOUR IN THE MORNING, I'LL SEND HER THE INFORMATION AND I'LL SEND HER A LINK TO THE ELECTION PAGE.

CAUSE IT'S GOT EVERYTHING YOU NEED, INCLUDING THE CRUEL 300 PAGE PACKET.

BUT IF YOU WANT TO READ EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANT IT TO KNOW ABOUT ELECTIONS, IT'S ON THE CITY SECRETARIES PAGE.

OKAY.

AND ALSO MENTIONED WHAT POSITIONS ARE AVAILABLE.

YES.

MA'AM, I'M THE CITY SECRETARY.

IT'S ALL THERE, BUT I'M GOING TO SCHOOL AND THE CITY I'M GOING TO SEND ALL THAT THE COURSE TOMORROW.

YEAH.

THE DISTRICT IS ANOTHER RESOURCE.

IF IT'S NOT THERE, THE CITY AND THE DISTRICT THEY'RE SEPARATE, BUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS A HUGE WEBSITE TOO.

THEY DO.

THEY'RE SEPARATE, BUT THEY, THEY HAVE THEIRS TOO.

YEAH.

BUT IT'S, YOU KNOW, THAT ANYTHING THAT WE ARE AWARE OF, WE DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO SEND US, BUT IF YOU WOULD PULL IT TOGETHER AND JUST SHARE IT WITH OUR LIST, LET US ALL TAKE A LOOK AT IT, PROVIDE SOME INPUT OR ELSE, JUST RUN WITH IT AND GET IT OUT.

YEAH.

I'LL GET SOMETHING OUT IN THE MORNING.

OKAY.

[00:50:02]

THANK YOU, RENEE.

UM, OKAY.

AND WHAT, WHAT, WHAT HAVE WE NOT DISCUSSED THAT WE SHOULD DISCUSS? THIS IS A BUNCH OF ACTION.

I LIKE ACTION.

OKAY.

UM, SO FOR THE COMMUNITY FESTIVAL THING, IF WE DO A VIRTUAL VERSION, I LAST NIGHT I WAS WATCHING THE PARADE ACROSS AMERICA AND I WAS THINKING LIKE, THAT WOULD BE A, LIKE A GREAT INSPIRATION OF WHAT WE COULD DO.

IT WAS SO GOOD.

AND YES, I THINK YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

AND YOU KNOW, REALISTICALLY I, THE WORLD IS VIRTUAL AT LEAST INTO THIRD QUARTER.

AND EVEN IF IT BECOMES HYBRID, VIRTUAL AND PHYSICALLY DISTANCE IS STILL GOING TO BE MORE VIRTUAL THAN DISTANCE.

AND SO 20, 22.

SO THOUGHTS ON THAT REALLY MAKE SENSE? YOU KNOW, AND I THINK AS WE THINK ABOUT IT, WE HAVE TALENT ALL OVER TOWN.

WE COULD DO SOMETHING THAT IS VERY COOL AT A MUCH SMALLER SCALE.

THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL.

AND PARKS AND REC IS DOING STUFF TOO.

SO I WILL PLUG INTO THEM.

AND RENEE HAS GIVEN ME SOME GREAT CONTACTS OVER THERE WHO HANDLE EVENTS.

EVERYONE'S WELCOME.

THIS IS, THIS IS NOT MY RODEO.

I'M HAPPY TO HAVE ALL THE HELP IN THE WORLD.

NO, OUR CHURCH HAS SOME INDIAN DANCERS FROM SOME PART OF SOUTH AMERICA OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND THAT THEY'RE REALLY, THAT WOULD BE NICE TO PUT IT A IT'S TRUE, BUT SOME THINGS CAN BE LIVE.

SOME THINGS CAN BE RECORDED.

WE HAVE ONE OF THE GOOD THINGS ABOUT VIRTUAL IS THAT YOU HAVE MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO CAPTURE CONTENT.

YEAH.

AND JENNIFER HAS, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF DANCERS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

THAT'S AWESOME.

WE WILL SEE MANY COMMUNITIES REPRESENTATIVE WE'RE DOING AND WHAT IF WE'RE DOING A GOOD JOB? WELL, I HAVE NO MORE.

DOES EVERYONE UNDERSTAND WHAT WE'RE DOING? I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS.

OKAY.

CAN WE GET A LITTLE, JUST A LITTLE BLURB, LIKE SAY, OKAY.

IN, IN, IN THE RESOURCE CENTER, WHO'S IN CHARGE THAT WAY.

IF I HEAR SOMETHING, I CAN GIVE IT TO HER AND THEN WHOEVER'S DOING THE VOTER, AN IDEA THAT KIND OF STUFF.

OR, OR, YEAH, I THINK THAT'S A GREAT IDEA ELVIA.

AND THE OTHER THING IS IF WE CAN GET THIS FACEBOOK GROUP GOING QUICKLY, WE CAN START PUTTING IT THERE AND EVERYONE WILL HAVE ACCESS TO IT IMMEDIATELY.

AND YOU WON'T BE WAITING OUT AN EMAIL OR TRYING TO CHECK A DATE OR ANYTHING ELSE.

SO IF WE CAN GET THAT INFORMATION QUICKLY AND WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET IT PROVIDED VERY QUICKLY, SHE'S SENT HER AN EMAIL IN THE MORNING AND HOSTAGE OR ANYTHING.

SHE JUST HAS IT SHE'S REALLY RESPONSIVE.

BUT THEN WE, WE CAN PUT THINGS THERE BECAUSE NO ONE'S IN CHARGE OF THE RESOURCE CENTER.

EVERYONE'S IN CHARGE OF THEIR PIECE OF IT.

THE RESOURCE CENTERS GOT EVERYTHING.

BE HELPFUL IF IN THE MINUTES OR IN SEPARATE DOCUMENT, IF WE HAVE AS OBVIOUS SENSE WHO'S IN CHARGE OF EACH THING AND THEN AN EMAIL ADDRESS.

OKAY.

YES.

YEP.

BUT I PUT THAT TOGETHER IN THE MORNING AS WELL, LIKE RIGHT.

THANKS.

AND ALSO, UM, I KNOW YOU SAID EMAIL ADDRESS AND NAME, BUT CAN YOU PUT FOR MINE? MY TECH, UH, MY CELL PHONE NUMBER THAT WAY.

UM, I CAN RECEIVE TEXTS AS WELL.

YEAH.

OKAY.

UM, A LIST WITH RESPONSIBILITIES, UM, EMAIL.

AND SO, AND THEN TEXTS FOR KOSHER ARE.

YEAH.

OKAY.

I'M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT DON'T CHECK MY EMAIL FREQUENTLY AND I HAVE OVER 3000 IN THERE THAT WILL TEXT ME.

I DON'T HAVE AN EMAIL, I HAVE FIVE ACCOUNTS AND NOW ONE OF THEM HAS LESS THAN 5,000 UNREAD EMAILS.

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE JUST LIKE, WELL, I SENT YOU AN EMAIL.

I'M LIKE, I DON'T WISH I HAD TIME TO READ EMAIL.

BUT IF I EVER READ LIKE 300 A DAY, IF I EVER READ THE DAY'S EMAILS, I WOULDN'T GET ANY WORK DONE.

YEAH.

I KEEP SAYING, I'M GOING TO JUST DELETE THEM ALL INSTALLED OFF, START OVER AGAIN.

I NEED SOMEONE WHO'S REALLY GOOD AT MANAGING.

AND I JUST KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALL THE RULES, THEY DO THIS, THEY DO THAT.

I SET UP RULES AND ALL IT MEANS IS THAT IT'S NOT IN MY INBOX.

I CAN DO THAT.

MY WORK EMAIL, I CAN FIGURE THAT OUT.

BUT

[00:55:01]

IN MY PERSONAL EMAIL, THE GMAIL IS RIDICULOUS.

AS IN LIKE RANDOM STRANGERS HAVE MY EMAIL ADDRESS, THEY ALSO SEND YOU 25 A DAY.

IT'S TOO MUCH, ONE POINT OF CLARITY BEFORE WE HOP OFF.

UM, AND RENEE AND YOU, WE MIGHT'VE SAID THIS, I KNOW FOR EACH OF THESE, THERE WILL BE DIFFERENT PLANT PLATFORMS IN TERMS OF THE WAY WE DELIVER THE INFORMATION.

BUT ONE OF THEM, WE DID SAY FROM A DIGITAL STANDPOINT, AS FAR AS GOING, GOING TO THE WEBSITE, WHERE DID WE, MAYBE IN THE MINUTES, IF YOU CAN INCLUDE THAT LINK, LIKE WHERE SPECIFICALLY WILL PEOPLE GO SEE THIS? CAUSE I DON'T THINK WE HAD OUR, WE DON'T, WE DON'T KNOW YET.

I HAVE TO TALK WITH DORKY ABOUT THAT.

I WAS TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT WAS, WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT IT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I HAVE TO TALK WITH DORKY AND THE EDITOR ABOUT HOW TO APPROACH THAT.

AND THEY, THEY REALLY OWN THE WEBSITE AND THEY REALLY DECIDE WHAT CONTENT GOES THERE AND YOU KNOW, I'LL HAVE ALL THE, BRANDING'S NOT EVERYTHING.

SO IT'S, I GOT, I'VE GOT TO MEET WITH THEM AND I'LL, AND I'LL DO THAT IMMEDIATELY.

ALSO.

ARE THERE ANY BRANDING? YES.

THERE IS A BRANDING GUY.

IF SHE ALLOWS IT, THEN I WILL BE PASSING THE BRANDING GUIDE OUT TO EVERYBODY SO THAT EVERYBODY WILL FOLLOW EXACTLY WHAT HER, TO HER EXPECTATIONS.

I THINK WHAT'S WONDERFUL ABOUT THIS.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT IS THAT THIS COMMISSION HAS EXISTED ALL OF THIS TIME.

AND THIS ONE GOAL THAT WE HAVE TO GET INFORMATION TO PEOPLE AND THAT WE'RE TRYING SO HARD TO SOLVE IS PROBABLY THE MOST VALUABLE THING THAT WE WILL HAVE THAT WILL HAVE BEEN DONE.

AND THIS WAS NOT SEVERAL PEOPLE HAD PIECES OF THIS IDEA, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO JUST POINT AT OUR VICE CHAIR AS HER BEING, THIS IS THE BURNING THING TO DO.

LIKE THREE MONTHS AGO, SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT IT AND I'M LIKE, STEPHANIE, THAT IS A GREAT IDEA.

AND, YOU KNOW, AS, AS WE ALL COLLABORATE ON THIS, GIVING PEOPLE INFORMATION THAT THEY NEVER HAD, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE IN GARLAND DON'T KNOW WHAT'S AVAILABLE IN GARLAND AND WE'RE GETTING READY TO HELP WITH THAT.

AND YOU KNOW, ANY WAY THAT WE CAN DO IT, IF WE RUN INTO SOME, SOME STUMBLING BLOCKS.

OKAY.

BUT LET'S ASSUME THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO AGREE THAT THIS IS A GOOD IDEA.

UH, MADAM CHAIR, IF I, MY, UM, OR IF I MAY, I'LL REMIND YOU GUYS AGAIN, THAT YOU GUYS WERE THE GROUP WHO TOOK JUST PLAYING ALL PDFS AND, UM, FLYERS FROM DALLAS COUNTY ON THE CENSUS AND PUSHED OUT INFORMATION LIKE MATT TO YOUR COMMUNITIES AND HELP BOOST OUR CENSUS NUMBERS WITH, WITH JUST FINAL PDFS, YOU KNOW? AND, UM, IT, IT REALLY WASN'T A FACEBOOK PAGE OR ANYTHING.

IT WAS JUST CONSTANTLY PUTTING IT ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA AND CONSTANTLY PUSHING THE INFORMATION AFTER ORGANIZATIONS THAT YOU KNEW AND IN YOUR COMMUNITY WITH PEOPLE YOU KNEW.

SO SOME OF IT WAS SOCIAL MEDIA MAYBE, BUT A LOT OF IT WASN'T, YOU KNOW, SO THAT'S DONE THIS BEFORE AND I THINK I'VE SAID THAT TO YOU BEFORE YOU, YOU GUYS KNOW HOW TO REACH YOUR OWN PEOPLE WHO TRUST YOU.

AND THAT'S, I THINK THE KEY FOR ALL OF IT, THAT'S A GOOD BINDER.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

THAT'S, THAT'S HELPFUL TO HEAR.

YEAH.

I SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PREACHER, BUT THEY DON'T ALLOW IT IN MY CHURCH.

I'M PRESBYTERIAN.

WE LET THAT HAPPEN.

BUT THAT IS, THAT IS SUCH A GOOD POINT BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, AS YOU THINK ABOUT IT, YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE, YES, WE KNOW THE MOST EVOLVED VERSION OF WHAT WE WOULD LIKE IS THIS.

AND WE KNOW THAT THIS VERSION WOULD BE THAT LESS GOOD, BUT BETTER THAN NOTHING.

AND THIS WOULD BE BETTER.

THIS LET'S START AT THE BOTTOM AND WORK OUR WAY UP.

BUT ANYTHING WE SHARE IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING PEOPLE DIDN'T HAVE, WHETHER WE EMAIL IT TO ALL OF OUR LOCAL FRIENDS, SHARE IT WITH OUR COUNCIL, BUT WHATEVER.

YES.

MADAM VICE CHAIR, I THINK WE'RE GOOD.

I THINK WE'VE EXHAUSTED OUR AGENDA.

OUR NEXT MONTH'S MEETING DATE

[3. Upcoming CMC Meeting Dates]

NEXT MONTH MEETING IS ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH AT 6:00 PM.

OKAY.

EVERYONE, OR FIND OUT ABOUT THE FACEBOOK GROUP AND EVERYTHING ELSE.

AS SOON AS WE GOT INFO.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

I, YOU KNOW, I AM EXCITED.

I AM EXCITED CAUSE YOU ARE AWESOME AND THEY'RE REALLY HAPPY.

SO THANK YOU ALL.

THANK YOU, RENEE.

WE ARE.
