“Here is a proposal for kicking off the Str.uegic Planning Process
As unanimously approved at the last Board meeting. our strategic planning will be done in a series of Saturday morning meetings. These meetings should start at 10,00 am and finish no later than noon.

At each of these meetings. I would like the chair of the associated committee to kick off the meeting with a proposed vision statement that describes the scale and scope of their committee’s topical area for the next 3 years and the anticipated impacts on other aspects of P&C operations. Subsequent discussions at the meeting will focus on the tenability of that statement as well as the offering of alternative vision statements by other attendees. By the end of the meeting, our objective will be to craft a consensus statement for that area of responsibility.
As we progress through the weeks, subsequent vision statements offered by other committee chairs should avoid conflict with consensus statements crafted in prior weeks if possible (problems should have been resolved at the earlier meeting).
I have used a “form follows function” philosophy in establishing the following order:
1. January 18 - Education: Janet Tracy (operating a school is fundamental to our mission)
2. January 25 - Membership: Jayne Bellows
3. February 1 - Exhibitions: Chris Jones
4. February 8 - Building: Linda Boatman

Guests Jane Ellen Murray and Ed Wentz

Regular Board of Directors Meeting
Thursday, March 22,2002
Call to Order: The meeting was called to order at 6:30 pm by President Frank Holt.
Attendance: Frank Holt, Linda Boatman, Dayle Sazonoff, Leslie
Outten, Barbara Graef en, Nancie King Mertz, Chris Miller, Ed Wentz,
Christine Sauser, Lenore Murphy, Bill Ewers. Guests: Jason Miller,
Clayton Beck.
Reading of Minutes: A motion was made to waive reading of the minutes. It passed.
Clayton Beck presentation: Clayton presented a handout with ideas for a special workshop at the end of June going into July. Clayton may me able to bring in some of his own students. The Board will consider his proposal.
Jason Miller presentation: (The Board has his handout from a previous meeting.) Jason requested a three hour block of time for his salon and Bill Ewers suggested that the third Saturday of the month would be good from 7:30pm - 10:30pm. Bill asked Jason what the salon would be structured like. He said each topic would be chosen at the
Previous meeting. Tree studios usually had approximately 30 people in attendance and 10 people will probably attend now. Lenore asked about refreshments. Jason said he would take full responsibility for cleanup. Linda suggested that we would give the salon a try and we could work something into the “Quick Sketch.” Jason will call Bill tomorrow with a membership application to the P&C and a presentation for the first meeting.
Frank Holt reports: In reference to the Jack Beckstrom sculpture Jack recommended Jane Canepa from Innovators (p.r.firm) . She handled Mayor Bilandic’s tribute. She is suggesting $500 to handle the unveiling of Jack’s sculpture. She would contact Chicago celebrities for the event (see handout) She recommended that we get new signage for our building. A motion was made for her services. The Board discussed that there is not any urgency at the moment for the unveiling as the sculpture needs repairs. The motion was tabled.
Bill Ewers report: Bill talked about the p.r. we received from the article about the P&C in the “Skyline.” Bill is working on a $50,000 grant from the Chicago Community Trust. Fox TV has a program that has people participating in unusual activities. This would be the Chicago Black Hawks Drawing at the P&C. The pros and cons of this event were discussed. CBS is preparing a new referral service on TV for activities in Chicago. They would like to give us publicity. Bill passed around an info, sheet. Bill Conte will build 16-17 new art bins upstairs. We will be selling our old green folding chairs for $5 each. There is an expensive plumbing problem on the second floor. The water lines need to be replaced. The floor is too far gone and we need to investigate the right kind of toilet to install.

The buzzer in the coach house needs repairs. (door won’t open.) We need hardware replaced on windows. The back gate is not closing again. The cold weather affects the lock.
Christine Sauser budget: We have the audited budget back in time to apply for grants. Christine is very happy with the $40,000 income from last year. Our utility bills were high. We don’t need to raise dues or rents from studios. Our goal is not to profit from this. We are doing exceedingly well. We already have a Harriet Bitterly account opened at the bank. We will be using it for our scholarship money instead of opening a new account. The Bitterly money has essentially been spent. It was never indicated on the written budget. Christine and Jayne Bellows have discussed paying models directly out of the office. It would eliminate the monitors as check signers and it would be better for our record keeping. Our accountant was pleased with his overview of the P&C cash flow and balance sheets. Chris M. asked Chris S. about collecting money at open workshops and Chris S. suggested using carbons. The problem is solvable. We could possibly sell coupon books. This problem can be discussed later. Linda moved to accept the Treasurer’s report. The motion was accepted.
New members: Dayle presented the work of Rosemary Fanti-Mance. She had already been presented when she received a scholarship. We reviewed Natalia Andreeva’s work in a photo book. A motion was made and passed to accept both artists for membership.
Bill speaks: dare Tate has resigned from the Board. Dayle added that for personal reasons, Clare needed to resign.
Fund raising report: Dayle mentioned the “Spring Cleaning Fund- raiser” upcoming and that it is prominently mentioned in the recent “Skyline” newspaper story. Dayle reminded the Board of a recent Board meeting discussion about taking a monthly ad in the “Skyline.” A motion was made and seconded to fund up to $2,662.00 for an ad in the “Skyline.” A discussion ensued. The motion passed.
Ed Wentz speaks: Ed read a note from his wife, Jayne Ellen. She wants us to consider using an impartial judge for the Board election on April 9th. Ed made a motion that we use a judge from outside the P&C. A discussion ensued with Chris Miller supporting this motion. Nanci stated that she was irritated with Ed’s disregard of the original choices and hard work of the nominating committee. Bill Ewers felt that he is capable of his responsibility of handling the membership meeting as usual. Christine Sauser agreed with Bill. Then Ed agreed also. The motion did not pass. Chris Miller made a motion for the ballot to be printed. The motion did not pass.
Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 8:20 pm. Respectfully submitted,
Dayle R. Sazonoff

Regular Board of Directors Meeting
Thursday, February 7, 2002
Call to Order: The meeting was called to order at 6:30 pm by President Frank Holt.
Attendance: Frank Holt, Clare Tate, Dayle Sazonoff, Leslie Outten, Ed Wentz, Jayne Bellows, Sid Kavin, Linda Boatman, Barbara Graefen, Nancie King Mertz, Bill Ewers. Guest: Jason Millet.

Jason Millet proposal: A handout to the Board proposed that P&C serves as home to an art salon. We asked Jason various questions. Linda suggested a trial meeting. Jason will keep in touch and provide with details.
Reading of Minutes: A motion was made to pass on reading the minutes. It carried.
Ammendation of December 2001 minutes: The original text in Christin Sauser’s financial report; Linda amended the motion to give the Board preliminary approval before it goes to the membership. Dayle made a motion to change this to read: “The Board gives preliminary approval to the Budget subject to additions or corrections at the next Board meting. The motion passed.”
Bill Ewers speaks: Bill reminded us about the Scholl reception. Bill has a connection with Drihaus. Jim Hajicek applied to Bill to teach at the P&C. The electrical warranty is coming up. Two light fixtures need repairing. The fan and lightswitch doesn’t work on the second floor. Bill will put a reminder in studio renters’ mailboxes about repairs under warranty. Nancie suggested a handyman service future repairs.
Linda B.: Linda made a motion to move Board meetings from the first
Thursday to the third Thursday of the month beginning in March 2002
to enable Christine Sauser to produce an accurate treasurer’s report
The motion passed.
New members: Clare Tate and Jayne Bellows presented new members:
Ron Berman, Georgie Hanes, Mary Qian, Shirleann Cruz, Victoria Barr
Renee Macarus and Helen Jensen. A motion was made to accept them.
Dayle speaks: Dayle commented that inappropriate passages regarding Board motions had been printed in the February “Quick Sketch” and should be subject to editing. She made a motion that the Editor of the “Quick Sketch” should have use of editorial discretion in regarding to improper and/or lengthy letters to the Editor. The motion passed.
Fund Raising Report: Dayle presented a folder/handout for grants that Frank Holt and Sid Kavin had designed more than a year ago. Part of the text has been written already. Due to Sid’s and Frank’s illnesses last year, the project was put on hold. Now that we have a good idea of the direction of the Donor/Scholarship Committee, Fundraising Committee and Building Committee, we will be able to finish the project. Dayle brought Dave Becker on board a few months ago. (Note: Ed Wentz designed a donor folder. The Board concurred that there was valuable information that could be used.)

The Fund Raising Committee asked the office to keep track of how we are getting new members with an emphasis on the yellow pages ad. Our committee has found that we are spending too much money on this ad. Dayle proposed prices for a weekly ad in “The Skyline.’ Dayle will bring this up next month when Christine Sauser is present. We have plans to send a fund raising letter to the membership targeting a specific need much like the successful “Buy a brick” fund. Barbara is revising last year’s Spring Cleaning handout. Diane Rath will lead a workshop May 8,9, and 10.
Honorary Membership Ed W. read a letter from Heather Bilandic thanking us for a condolence letter. Frank H. made a motion to give her an honorary membership. It passed.
Promotion Firm: Ed W. thought we should seek out a professional firm to promote Jack Beckstrom’s statue rather than doing it ourselves. Ed thought such an undertaking would cost $300. Frank said he would investigate.
Adjournment: The meeting adjourned at 8:00 pm. Respectfully submitted:
Dayle R. Sazonoff ‘
corresponding Secretary
