The COLA Board didn’t meet over the summer, but committees were active. Highlights:
- The Ad Hoc Social Media Committee, co-chaired by Monica Brennan and Pnina Pressburger and assisted by Eileen Dyer and Tom Viall, revived the COLA Facebook page and launched us on Twitter.
- COLA’s Webmaster, Tom Viall, redesigned org/, giving it a sleeker, cleaner look.
- Our Treasurer, Neeltje Henneman, worked with Chair Cheryl McCarthy to develop an annual budget – something we haven’t had in recent memory, but surely need if we’re to keep funding TV commercials along with our usual scholarships, advocacy awards, and educational events.
- The Ad Hoc Committee on Strategic Planning and Bylaws – Emilie Benoit, John Bucci, Ron Heroux, and Cheryl McCarthy – updated the 2015-2018 plan.
A hearty thanks to all!
