SL Bar Association

[2016/02/13 10:12]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We were in the process of discussing the benefit we brought up at the last meeting.
[2016/02/13 10:13]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Tim was kind enough to look into some possible performers for the benefit.
[2016/02/13 10:14]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We do need to discuss dates and what the charity will be.
[2016/02/13 10:15]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We discussed doing it in April and that still sounds pretty feasible.
[2016/02/13 10:16]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Does anyone have any suggestions?
[2016/02/13 10:16]  MystiTool HUD 1.3.1: Entering chat range: henrylaurens Resident (4m)
[2016/02/13 10:17]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Hi Henry!
[2016/02/13 10:17]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Sorry Im late.  But it makes this seem more true to life that I am!  LOL
[2016/02/13 10:17]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me smiles
[2016/02/13 10:17]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): /me smiles
[2016/02/13 10:17]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): No worries!
[2016/02/13 10:18]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Perhaps it would be worthwhile to remind us of the conversation from last month.
[2016/02/13 10:18]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): hi henry, welcome
[2016/02/13 10:18]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Thanks Tim, Elizabeth
[2016/02/13 10:18]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Yes, let's do a quick recap of that
[2016/02/13 10:19]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Last month we discussed having a charity benefit on the sim with some performers in order to not only raise money for a charity, but also to gain some visibility to others of the sim and SLBA.
[2016/02/13 10:19]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I don't particularly remember where we left things.
[2016/02/13 10:19]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me smiles, no worries, I took notes!
[2016/02/13 10:19]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We discussed having it in April and various charities were mentioned, but none were specifically chosen.
[2016/02/13 10:20]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Tim was kind enough to look into some singers and mentioned that there were some he knew of that might be able to perform at such an event.
[2016/02/13 10:21]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Listens thoughtfully
[2016/02/13 10:21]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): They all seem to be somewhat well known, and have a following, which would help bring people to the sim as well.
[2016/02/13 10:22]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Did we decide on a specific date?
[2016/02/13 10:22]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Not yet.
[2016/02/13 10:22]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): The musical performers I know all play "bagrock" which is probably not suitable.
[2016/02/13 10:23]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): In looking at the calendar, perhaps April 16? or, in the alternative, the 30?
[2016/02/13 10:23]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Those sound like good dates, Elizabeth
[2016/02/13 10:24]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): I purposely skipped the 23rd, though maybe I didn't need to, because of Passover.
[2016/02/13 10:24]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): You passed it over?
[2016/02/13 10:24]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me smiles, "Wish I had thought of the pun!"
[2016/02/13 10:24]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): That probably means that Easter is somewhere along in there as well.
[2016/02/13 10:25]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Easter is at the end of March this year.
[2016/02/13 10:25]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Ah, I was about to check, thanks for taking care of that.
[2016/02/13 10:25]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Significantly earlier.  It's unusual.
[2016/02/13 10:25]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Shows I what I know.
[2016/02/13 10:25]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Usually right around each other.  Not sure how that happened this year.
[2016/02/13 10:26]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): So, does anyone have a preference date-wise?
[2016/02/13 10:26]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Blondes?
[2016/02/13 10:26]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): lol
[2016/02/13 10:26]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): This is a tough crowd!
[2016/02/13 10:26]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): YOu don't have to tell my wife I said that, Susan,
[2016/02/13 10:26]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Go for 4.16 and hold 4.30 in reserve in case of a problem
[2016/02/13 10:27]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): I won't say a word!
[2016/02/13 10:27]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Does everyone agree with Henry?  I think that's a good idea.
[2016/02/13 10:27]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): It's tough when your SL friends also know you wife.
[2016/02/13 10:27]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Chuckles.
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I second April 16.
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me laughs
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): All in favor?
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Aye
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): I like the idea of having a fallback date as well - regardless of hair color.
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Aye
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me giggles
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): aye.
[2016/02/13 10:28]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): aye
[2016/02/13 10:29]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): +1
[2016/02/13 10:29]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Just so you know, Ellen, my fall back color is gray!
[2016/02/13 10:29]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): So the 16th it is with the 30th as a fallback date.
[2016/02/13 10:30]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We discussed having it here earlier as one of the goals is to gain visibility as a bar association with those who would otherwise not come here.
[2016/02/13 10:30]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): can we plan for an evening concert - say 6-9p SLT?
[2016/02/13 10:30]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Maybe a little earlier as some of us can't make it through midnight east coast time!
[2016/02/13 10:30]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Does that work for New Yorkers?
[2016/02/13 10:30]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me chokes as she suddenly feels very old!
[2016/02/13 10:30]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Looks for New Yorkers
[2016/02/13 10:31]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me sheepishly raises hand.
[2016/02/13 10:31]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Marylanders?
[2016/02/13 10:31]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): It will be Yuge
[2016/02/13 10:31]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Three hours later here, so 9 PM SLT is midnight already .... kinda late
[2016/02/13 10:31]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I suggest 5 - 8
[2016/02/13 10:31]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Can we make it a bit earlier?
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Yes, that's at least a little better for us Eastern time zone folks
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): i will see what i can do
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): I think I would say maybe a ending at 6 pm slt?   Maybe 3-6 or 4-7 at the latest?
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Too early for the West of us.
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Didn't see what you typed before I did Sam.
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Will we get a performer for three hours
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me laughs
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): 5-8 should work.
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): three different artists
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): henry: i was thinking 3, one hour performances
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Dont they generally go one?
[2016/02/13 10:32]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Tim was thinking of 3 performers for an hour each.
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Can we know yet who are the possible artists?
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): or is it too soon?
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Great idea.
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): i've spoken with seth regan and TwinGhost about the idea
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): and I think I should be able to talk AMForte into as well
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Thank you Tim!
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): I know Seth Regan has a great following, I am not familiar with the others.
[2016/02/13 10:33]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Maybe we could do a mix of styles?
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): seth is a rocker, AMForte is singer-songwriter, Twin is more blues
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I like both kinds of music.
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Sounds great!
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): OK, so it's already a decent variety.
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me grins.
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): (Country AND Western.)
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me smiles
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): we could ask savannah coronet - she is country and has a big following
[2016/02/13 10:34]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Sounds like a plan. :-)
[2016/02/13 10:35]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): other suggestions?
[2016/02/13 10:35]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): I doubt that my bagrock acquaintances would be interested anyway - they usually play at 2 PM SLT on Saturdays so they are probably from an earlier time zone.
[2016/02/13 10:35]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Perhaps we could have a political debate at the same time?
[2016/02/13 10:35]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): /me laughs
[2016/02/13 10:36]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Cruz & Sanders?
[2016/02/13 10:36]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): is Bern a lawyer?
[2016/02/13 10:36]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me smiles
[2016/02/13 10:36]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Now that we have an email contact list, let's do reminders by email since some of us may not log in with these identities every day.
[2016/02/13 10:37]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): A Jew from New England?  He's got to be.
[2016/02/13 10:37]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We also need to discuss cost of the performers.
[2016/02/13 10:37]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Ellen, the contact list was an exec committee listing needed for the not for profit.
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): I can send out an announcement on Ning
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): I'll see how I can do with email notices.  I try to turn on my offline notifications so that I get them from here even if I don't log on?
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): He was a poli sci major at Chicago, but looks like he did not go to law school
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): I thought we also were talking about a Facebook page last meeting
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Bummer.
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): That is a good idea Geri! Is there something we need to do in order to receive NING notifications?
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Bummer.
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Her debates like a lawyer.
[2016/02/13 10:39]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): he*
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Perhaps we can make him anhonorary member of the SLBA?
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): That should put him over the top
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Perhaps we can just discuss the cost of the performers and then discuss the FB page / NING / Email?
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): LOL
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Works for me.
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): /me laughs at the other conversation.
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): /me smiles
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): How much does each usually charge, Tim
[2016/02/13 10:40]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): You guys are funny!
[2016/02/13 10:41]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): so live shows here in SL range from between 3k to 15k per performer
[2016/02/13 10:41]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): That's a bargain.
[2016/02/13 10:41]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): AMForte and TwinGhost usually charge 6k, seth is 15k
[2016/02/13 10:41]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): savannah coronet is also probably 15k but has a huge following as well
[2016/02/13 10:43]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): I wonder how one gets on the listings for Firestorm's opening screen.  Probably by paying a LOT more than that.
[2016/02/13 10:43]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We should see about getting on SL's event calendar as well.
[2016/02/13 10:43]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): seth was able to get them to do it for an event we did last month because he has friends that manage that project
[2016/02/13 10:43]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): I remember seeing that.
[2016/02/13 10:43]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): That's awesome!
[2016/02/13 10:44]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): yes seth went out of his way to help with that last charity concert i was involved in
[2016/02/13 10:47]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Do we have a motion with regard to the performers and cost associated with hiring them?
[2016/02/13 10:47]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): i move to hire the performers for the total of $30,000L
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Second.
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): All in favor?
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): 2nd but with amendment?  That we solicit donations from members to offset?
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Is that enough, TIM?
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Or does that defeat the purpose?
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I think we can afford it.
[2016/02/13 10:48]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Perhaps we can consider the main motion and then a second motion to supplement with donations?
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): To Henry's question, I think we have enough in the coffers to support the payment to the musicians.
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Out objective is traffic and possibly members, not money particularly.
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Fair enough.  I withdraw the amendment and vote Aye
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): /me nods
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): No worries!
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Aye, then
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): aye
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Point of information
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): My other question is would 30,000 be enough if Savannah and Seth are both 15 each?
[2016/02/13 10:49]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Is $L30 k enough.
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Exactly.
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): i think if they both come, we would just do 2 hours
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): but if you want three hours and both of them, we would probably need 36,000L
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): 2 hours is probably a more reasonable plan.
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Not too many people want to stay at an event for more than 2 hours
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Would you accept a friendly amendment to raise the stipend to $L50K?
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Ok.  And if you wanted a warmer upper for a third hour, I would be willing to donate a third hour as Chris.
[2016/02/13 10:50]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): there you go
[2016/02/13 10:51]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Sounds perfect
[2016/02/13 10:51]  Tim (yoss.kamachi): no objection to a 50k budget.
[2016/02/13 10:51]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We could raise it to 50K.
[2016/02/13 10:51]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Ok, let's figure out what this motion is now. *laughs*
[2016/02/13 10:52]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): Does Henry as seconder accept theamendment?
[2016/02/13 10:52]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Pardon me, doing a little multi-tasking so I might lag a bit in voting on the motion once we figure out what it is.
[2016/02/13 10:52]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): I think we are just amending the budget to 50K
[2016/02/13 10:52]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): From 30K
[2016/02/13 10:53]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Split the difference to 40?
[2016/02/13 10:53]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I guess the amendment fails for lack of a second.
[2016/02/13 10:53]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): I do accept the amendment but I do want to keep an eye on the bottom line - understanding the main goal is visibility
[2016/02/13 10:53]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Maybe we should leave it at 30K and allow the possibility of donations to supplement that if necessary
[2016/02/13 10:53]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I will vote no.
[2016/02/13 10:54]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): We have the money in the account.
[2016/02/13 10:54]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Alright I accept the 50 if thats the majority's desire
[2016/02/13 10:54]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): But it seems we can do it with 30, right?
[2016/02/13 10:54]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): The motion has been amended and seconded.
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): Which motion is on the table?
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): Restate please?  Agrees with Geri
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Only with Savannah and Seth for 30
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): We don't have to spend eery linden.
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): To get a third singer, we would need more.
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): every
[2016/02/13 10:55]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): I just think it would be impossible to get authority to spend more if we need it.
[2016/02/13 10:56]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): If money is the concern, I think we can get a third for 10 more (probably a little less) - so I think it is a good idea to approve for more with the knowledge it will probably be less.
[2016/02/13 10:56]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Maybe "up to a maximum of 50,000" rather than a straight-out "budgeting 50,000" ?
[2016/02/13 10:56]  Sam Courtois. Esq. (sam4.courtois): The motion as amended is to authorize the EC to engage musicians for up to $L50 K for the April 16 event.
[2016/02/13 10:57]  Henry Laurens (henrylaurens): call the question

[2016/02/13 11:05]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): yes
[2016/02/13 11:06]  Ellen S Ross Attorney NY State (ellensross): Maybe we should defer the decision on the charity until the next meeting?
[2016/02/13 11:06]  Elizabeth (elizabethesq): Ok.  Perhaps we should narrow this down, and see what we can find on SL first, make the final decision in March's meeting as we should start advertising by then?

[2016/02/13 11:06]  Geri Kahn (geri.kuhn): /me agrees
