February 2014 Board Meeting Minutes

FSP Board Meeting
Sunday, February 23, 2014
Crowne Plaza Hotel, after Liberty Forum

Meeting called to order 9:13am
Attending: Carla, Varrin, Aaron (left at 10am), Seamas, Jody, Sharon, Rich (on skype)

Agenda:
1. Liberty Forum
2. 501c3
3. Budget

Liberty Forum. Record ticket sales. VIP tickets work well; expenses matched revenues; Discovery Channel, New Yorker, and other media channels were here. We also had favorable local press. We invited speakers outside the traditional liberty circles, reaching into other demographics, and it was very well received. A tweet-up started the conference, and people were tweeting throughout the Forum. The conference organization team was great. People liked the magazine-style program. There were a lot of first time people attending. Attendees will be asked for feedback via an online survey. We don’t have final numbers for attendance yet, but one good indication was that the parking lot was sometimes full. In order to grow the conference, we’re exploring alternatives for next year.
