- Minutes from Oct 11, 2012
Motion to approve by Mark, seconded by Deborah. Voted unanimously.
Reed spoke with Sandra and emailed his contacts a PAREI to see if they would make a presentation on “Button-Up 201”. Contact is also being made with Wes Golomb and Andy Duncan at Lakes Region Community College to see if might be will to host a button-up type event. The timing for this potential public outreach event would be late January early February.
Mark asked if the committee might consider reaching out to Belknap County Economic Development Commission and Lakes Region Community College to host an event “Energy and Economic Development”
Deborah suggested that the Meredith Energy Committee host a Holiday Event in December. We could possible rent the common room located at Meredith Bay Village. We could invite other LEC’s in the area to see if they might be interested in co-hosting.
