CMBA meeting notes

The January 2009 Cedar Mill Business Association meeting started off with a call for members to become more involved with the committees established in 2008. The CMBA Board of Directors will continue to encourage general members to participate in planning and organizing committee meetings and projects throughout the year. Standing committees are Downtown Enhancement (landscape, banners, etc); Publicity & Events  (member participation in public events, mailings etc); Membership (increasing CMBA membership); Community Outreach (CMBA doing things for the community); and Programs (CMBA meeting topics).

Board Elections will be held at the February meeting and a slate of candidates was presented at the January meeting. The slate consists of: Lauren McCabe, DC, President; Mike Irinaga, VP; Dean Shade, Secretary; Mike McIntyre, Treasurer; Sandy Sahagian, Becky Jarvis, and Rebecca Guyot, Board Members.

The January program featured Terry Taylor of Dancing with Cows Marketing, who presented information on effective print advertising. He led a workshop in which attendees reviewed ads in the Portland Tribune and commented on positive and negative aspects of the size and text of the ads.

Beth Giles of NW Organizing Solutions used her Ten Minutes of Fame segment to offer some great tips for getting office clutter under control.

February’s meeting topic will be “Helping your customers find you on the internet,” presented by Tim Kober. Ten Minutes of Fame will feature Rebecca Guyot of The Harmony School.
