The Board decided that all content should be emailed to Rebecca to allow printing andassembly by next HERAA meeting in December. The Board discussed emailing an electroniccopy of the newsletter to Alumnae in the Database with email addresses. This would save onsnail mail costs on a large portion of the newsletter. Rebecca will look into the best financialoptions for printing and stapling the newsletter. The budget is typically $450 or so each year,but we are always looking for ways to reduce the price.Rebecca has received most articles from the E-board. Katie will again request any possiblearticles from the current HER women studying abroad. Marjorie will make some calls toadditional alumnae for possible contributions and will write something about some fellowalumnae (Elaine Panaretos (Bowditch)). The deadline will be to get all articles to Rebecca byNovember 22, 2003.Rebecca will email a copy of the Red Book questionnaire form to Marjorie to update for thisissue of the newsletter.Katie will confirm possible dates for the Alumnae Tea with the House. Suggested Dates areApril 10
or April 17
, 2010. The Valentine’s Day Tea will be Sunday, February 7
after theHERAA board meeting. (Alumni can help with the planning).
Zomana sent out a posting on the Alumni Weekend HER Open House. The Email went outand there was a listing of events on the website. The open house went well for advertising theHouse to prospective house members as well as visiting alumnae.
Zomana will look into website compatibility issues for MAC vs. PC and certain Browsers.There is a possibility that some people may be having trouble viewing the her-house.orgwebsite on certain computers.The House gave Zomana pictures for the House Holiday Social, Fall Faculty Wine andCheese, and 2009 Alumnae Tea.Marjorie suggested showing pictures of the Board. Dean Melville called the Board “TheOverseers” of the house, so the board posed for a picture to be put on the website.
Katie reported that current House Member, Carly, is head of the renovations committee. Shewill bring a list of suggested renovations to the December HERAA Meeting.Zomana recommended having a new gentleman, Charles Robinson from Woburn (781-933-2950) look into some of the additional items on the renovations list, as the Board felt Mr.Tom Johnson was a bit expensive.Buffet Table: The damaged/missing piece of carving on the front of the Buffet Table waslocated in the drawer and re-attached to the front of the buffet table. The table is nowrepaired.Bathroom Sink: The House reported that one of the bathroom sinks was leaking and iscracked. Marjory advised the house members that the sinks are generally BU’s responsibilityand recommended contacting Dick Steel at Building and Grounds. The HERAA did purchaseand pay for installing a new sink in the front foyer bathroom, but that was to preserve someof the decorative ambiance in the entry way of the house. In general, the more industrialsinks in additional bathrooms are owned by BU and the House should coordinate with B&G.Kitchen Floor: Repairs to the water-damaged kitchen floor are still outstanding.Curtains: Marjorie mentioned looking into a steam cleaner for cleaning drapes while still onthe rods. The board asked if they possibly need to purchase new curtains, but decided topostpone that discussion until after a cleaning.Television Stand & Sofa: The Board wants to get a new stand for the Television, as well as asofa. Marjorie needs a date when someone from the house can go shopping with her.The budget for the Sofa and TV stand was set at $1,000.
Clara and Marjorie will meet to discuss a plan of action for treasurer issuesand signatures at the bank. Zomana requested that we discuss the budget for the year in more
