The sponsorship letter sent out to the board prior to the meeting. Clem was assigned to start circulating even if it is not due until August. A portion of the sponsorship will to go to One LaSalle.

A picture of the wrist watch by Swatch, commemorating the Centennial, is posted on Facebook. Original cost is $200+. North American alumni groups contracted Casio as new supplier for a watch with the centennial logo. Updated cost is about $20-30, and a planned selling price of $50 plus tax. This new watch has been approved by Manila. Irvin will get the timing of the bulk order. There was a concern that the organization would need a SRBH California State Board of Equalization (CSBE) number for the sales tax. Irvin will confirm with Yo if this is possible with the organization’s non-profit status. Irv also wants to push the yearbook

On a side note, the DLS Alumni association is of SoCal is not 501c3, and ask if they can do joint fundraising with NorCal. This again has to be reviewed. SoCal is also willing to share some of resources, e.g. credit union membership.

Membership Drive:

BetBet Espiritu and Bo Santiago talked to Irvin about doing membership drive. They volunteered to recruit from their batch, HS 78. They believe some alumni do not know about the organization, or haven’t been invited. The suggestion is to get a venue, next month before the picnic, for the drive. At the drive, the board can talk about the projects, and Irvin can set up a photo op for yearbook pictures. Candidates can pay $35 dollars, to become a member. If not, we still add their names to the database.
