I went in slightly early, to start my day out getting ready for the 10am board meeting, of which I had been invited to sit in on. I figured that it would be a bored meeting rather than a board meeting for me (ha, I had to! ;)). Boy was I wrong…..
It turns out those evil spreadsheets I had been working on had been a project for The Board so they could see our show history, our show attendance, etc along with the presentation on marketing (of which I have copies of everything that was given out at the board meeting).
In the presentation about marketing, much of it was on the social media aspect of our marketing campaign, I was mentioned several times-how I run the facebook and twitter sites, and how I have been doing it since before Chuck was even hired in 2008. Yeah, that long. I think that impressed them. The board asked me a few questions about it, but nothing I couldn’t handle.
I spent half my day in the board meeting-10-12:15. Then ate a quick lunch, and help set up for the comedy cabaret in the evening. Then Chuck ran some errands, so I was left alone. The box office manager didn’t have anything for me, nor the business manager or marketing specialist, so I just stood around. Then the board president asked me if I knew how to make copies. I looked at her and said, “Do you have a code for me? And how many do you need?” She gave me her code, and told me she only wanted one copy of the list of current board members, so off I went. Then back to standing around, after wandering around a bit, I went and chatted with our marketing specialist for a bit about what kind of strategies we could potentially use for the future and some other ideas. I hung out in the boutique for a while as no one was staffing it in case a customer came in with a question After about an hour of that, I got bored and the boutique was closing anyway. Then I noticed my dad was there to pick me up, so I went to tell the box office manager that I was skipping out a little early-after all, I HAD come in early and just been hanging around the last two hours anyway.
