Auction Planning Committee 2019 #5

February 24, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

We will be having our next Lions TV Auction planning meeting is at noon, at the Martin Institute Boardroom at Stonehill (building no. C14 on the campus map – click here for map) is across from the Shields Science Center (where we hold the Auction).  Needless to say, we have a lot to go over!

ECAT TV Production Meeting:  We will be having our tv production meeting at Stonehill on Monday at 7pm at ECAT.  We need the folks who are involved with the broadcast production to be there.
Lions General Meeting:  We will have a half hour auction overview/training presentation at the general meeting on Wednesday Feb 27.    I will need our various coordinators to be there to help explain your respective areas.
SOLICITORS:  Your Item Admin Team, in fact your entire Auction Team, beseeches you – we need you to get your donations in to Ken this weekend!  If you have not submitted your donations and have not yet been in touch with Steve H. or Jon, please reach out to them to let them know the status  of your donations.  We have only one more week to go on the online auction, and the live auction will be upon us in nine days!
Thanks for everyone’s help!
