Agenda: 1. President’s report 2. Sponsor relations 3. BoD/Sharon’s proposal 4. State of PorcFest

President’s report In addition to her regular reports of what’s been done, Carla will also include gaps and things that were expected to be done but are not yet completed or need more resources. There was a request to have more structure in this report, including who is in charge of different tasks.

Sponsor relations 1. In addition to general event sponsors, a Mission Partner ("MP") category has been created to recognize long-term supporters. Mission Partners will have explicit sponsorship agreements so that terms do not have to be renegotiated for each event as is currently the case. 2. There will be levels with associated perks, going from $10,000 and down. It will be on the web site. 3. Jason Osborne proposed a plan to Carla for a FTL MP contract. Séamas will discuss the contract progress with Mark Edgington.

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.
