Reports - Officers: 

Chair’s Report 

Brad met with Joe Shea regarding the SDLP website. The menu has been reorganized and the home page redesign has begun. Officers can send in info i.e. general occupation or city of residence to add to their picture. 

The podcast is going well. We started January 2019 and have done around 27-28 episodes. 

Vice-Chair’s Report 

Don attended Gay Pride both days. Joe joined on Sunday. People appreciated that we were there. Don looked online for different booths. A Pride 10’ X 10’ booth price is $750, if paid one year in advance +/- $400. We could hand out business cards. The Hillcrest Street Fair is in August. A 10’ X 10’ space for one day is $235. We would need to add ten new members to cover the cost. 

Other street fairs. Carlsbad Street Fair. Pacific Beach maybe, but may only allow vendors who are from Pacific Beach. We missed the Ocean Beach Street Fair. We really do need a person to volunteer for Coordinator. It took time [to research]. 

$250 is a reasonable set point. Cost Benefit Analysis. We can do 8 or 10 without making money. Hillcrest is 2nd weekend in August – Joseph will check it out. Pacific Beach is in October. If we do an in-kind contribution, we must include it in our annual report to the State. 

Convention 2020. Don will write the letter to send out by Sept/Oct. Joseph will work on the scale of ticket prices i.e. $75 Regular, $25 Speaker Only, with cheapest prices early, increase upward, increase, at-door price. 

Don has one chapter left to finish writing his book. 

Treasurer’s Report 

Bob Fraas reviewed the 6/30/2019 financial statement.  For the month of June, the party had $125 in income and $76 in expense.  SDLP’s total income YTD was $3,025, YTD expense was $4,849, for a $1,754 YTD loss.  These figures do not include an in-kind annual meeting donation of around $1,300 for which we still need documentation for California reporting purposes.  The combined US Bank/PayPal cash balances totaled $8,094.

 

Bob noted that the Recipient Committee Statement of Organization (Form 410) had been returned for additional information by the Secretary of State’s office.  That documentation was added and the package resubmitted.

 

Publicity Chair’s Report 

Joseph is looking at charity/outreach events.  

Group discussion on the availability of speakers such as Dave Rubin, Kennedy Commentator Fox Business News. 

Don is drafting a letter to address members from SDLP officers to Registered Libertarians to reach out, show bullet points of what we hope fundraising will lead to. Don to send draft to Executive members, with the final draft at the August meeting, and forward to Antonio. 

Bob shared the results of the Escondido Supper Club. The attendees were long-term registered Libertarians and showed interest in participating in State-wide and Federal Libertarian Party.

Joseph noted that he will be moving the SDLP Supper Club to a new location. Comedy Palace is currently unavailable/booked. He is researching locations along the Clairemont corridor. Denny’s is a location that has a separate room for speakers/presentations. Send any location suggestions as a web link to Joseph. 

Secretary’s Report 

Registrar of Voters Proposed Fee Changes for Candidate Statements/Research. Colleen attended the Registrar of Voters Services and Fees Presentation in July. Their proposed new fee schedule has passthrough fees to cover their costs for translation, print fees. Their cost containment initiatives are to promote e-receipt of sample ballot, voter info pamphlet; make tech operations more efficient for business process re-engineering efforts (via new vendor); and develop online candidate statements and measure portal. Countywide master vote file at proposed $34 has the most info for the best price overall. It is produced monthly, takes 3-5 business days to send after you order, and you can pay online via credit card. 

Business cards for SDLP. Colleen will research costs of business card designs that show the website, podcast, facebook, contact info, porcupine symbol or Lady Liberty icon, joinus/… 

Unfinished Business 

Defer to August. Antonio to draft program for minimum signature requirements to qualify for the ballot. 

Bylaws. Bob has an MSWord copy of a boilerplate [template] that State provided. Email copies to members to request changes. We should send out by September/October for feedback. Keep on agenda under Unfinished Business. We will align to CA State Libertarian Party bylaws. 

For the July meeting, the proposed Bylaws draft discussion was on Articles I-VI. 

Some proposed edits included: 

Article I. Add “County” 

(Add “County” to website page, Facebook) 

Article II. Delete “help” 

Article III. Add “choose to affiliate with San Diego County” 

Article IV. TBD, renumber sections. 

Article V. Officers elected/Committee chairs elected, Vice Chair shall be in charge of organizing annual convention. 

New Business 

2020 Convention. For 2019, we spent $4800. 75 people attended. We need to finalize income/expenses report. Tabled to August meeting. 

Other Business (Announcements)  

No public comment at this time.
