The JLPA-MP had a very busy Fall and start to the 2011-12 League year. Now that things are starting to quiet down as we enter the holiday season, I will be posting a few blog articles that were written after the September GMM, but never published. The responses are too good not to be shared, so here they are!
The first General Membership Meeting of this league year was on September 14, 2011. There were at least 20 tables set-up in the meeting room, each completely full – the room was packed! President Meaux Costello kicked off the meeting with a warm welcome and announcements, followed by project and event updates from the different committee’s.
Summer Brill, Communications VP, gave an update on the League’s Communications focus for the upcoming year, including three main areas:
- Marketing - Streamline the process for using communications outlets for League
- Interaction - Facilitate and encourage sharing and interaction among members
- Branding - Increase awareness of the League in the community
The blog posts submitted during the activity were extremely creative. From the submissions I developed five bundles of responses from the various teams. The remaining team response bundles will be published over the next few weeks, so check back in to read each one!

If you were given 30 days free of all responsibilities (work, childcare, etc.), what would you do with that time?
Submitted by Christina York
We would travel, read, eat, sunbathe, shop at The Shop, go running, garden, and volunteer.
Stay tuned for more team responses to be published.
