On 2/18/17, we held a BDC Dancer Meeting. Below are the details of what was discussed:
1. New payment option- $75/month when paid by the 1st of each month
a. Right now, everyone pays about $84/month for all classes provided. However, with the new classes added on, this would be a value of $108. Therefore, paying $75/month for Members provides a discount.
b. Fee is due on the first of each month, however, you will be given until the first class of the month to decide if you want to pay for the month or per class.
2. Right now, Members will pay $10 drop-in fee for Vineyard FIT classes held at Miramonte Winery.
a. I will work with Vineyard FIT to see if a discount can be provided for Members who sign up for a gym membership at Vineyard FIT. Please see Courtney Carter for more details.
1. There is a BDC Membership/Dancer Expecation Packet available online. It is not stressed at this time due to our small numbers, but it is available for review.
C. Website Member's Page
1. On www.brazildanceco.org, there is a Member's Only page. Here, I will provide information that can be referenced as new Members are added or as seasoned Members need refreshers. Contact Courtney Carter to make sure you are added to list.
II. Communication Preferencene
A. Phone/text, Facebook public or private page, Website, or email?
1. As our numbers grow, it is important for me to know how to reach everyone for long term and last minute information. Please let me know what the majority prefers so that I am not chasing people around.
A. New Costume- Nay and I are working on a new "bloco" costume concept. We will hold another meeting specifically regarding the costume.
