WHAT A GREAT DAY!!   The OSC management team (of which I am a permanent member) met today for our annual long-range and budget planning meeting.   Current team members Lori McGinty, Elaine Rosenberg, Linda Barker, Judy Kroll, Laurie Burk, Lisa Fieber, Janice Lacombe, me, and it was great to have Margie Talley in attendance, providing her valuable input.   (For those of you who may not know, Margie is a former member of OSC - and served on an early management team).

First, we developed WISH LISTS for each of the areas (membership, marketing, events, finance, ways & means, communications, team leader, director), to list some great ideas of things we'd like to do in the coming 2-5 years.  9We'll share those ideas with you, and will be asking for your input during a brainstorming session at our Advance weekend.)  From that list, we identified which ones would have income/expenses associated with them and entered those activities/events onto our long-range planning calendar for fiscal years 2014-15, 2015-16, and 2016-17 (our fiscal year is from May 1 to April 30 each year).  Then we carefully worked thru each line item on the budget, thoroughly discussing the potential income and expenses.  

At the end of this very productive 7-hour session, we all felt very good about the final product which will be summarized to the chorus for a vote by the membership. 

I am extremely proud of the work this management team did today - we were all brain-dead by the end of the session, but it was a "good tired" and we feel we have a good, workable, well-thought-out plan our chorus members. I just want all of you to know just how hard this team of ladies is working on your behalf.   Pretty impressive !!!
