WBC Membership Drive
Last week, this blogger attended a breakfast meeting for West Broadway Coalition’s drive to bolster its membership. The meeting was held at our local YMCA, and as it turned out, it was a great networking opportunity for all of the various groups and organizations being represented there.

This particular meeting was orchestrated in a way that I had never seen at a north side meeting before. It actually started and ended on time. That’s a first for me. However, just because the meeting ended on time, didn’t mean that a bunch of us were chatting and palm-pressing afterwards. It wasn’t until about 11:30 before I got out of there.

The meeting itself was drama free. This of course was in stark contrast to the L3SO meeting that would be held several days later. Only one person in the audience made a ripple, and even that may be an over statement. This person asked the board President, Jackie Cherryhomes, if somebody could apply for a grant to get the $150 that it costs to become a member of WBC. Fortunately, Cherryhomes didn’t hesitate to dismiss that question with a quick “No” before moving on.

While this event was a fund raiser in nature, this blogger was able to see that this was more of a networking opportunity. As it turned out, I spent as much time recruiting for the Jordan flock as I did talking about West Broadway. Good times.
