Chairs approved minutes from last meeting after some corrections 

Chair Feedback:

Treasurer’s Report (Robin): Sales were good, less than 2019 but we had around 10 less booths.  It

appears people were honest with giving %.  Awesome!!! Robin said she thinks In Booth Sales saved us

money, we also saved money by not doing the city street banner-  

Sales Totals:  2019: $105,732 2022: $100,162

Graphic chair (Frank): print less large posters and less maps for the show

Holding Area (Tracie):  Some people did use the service- and we needed more boxes most potters didn’t

bring any

Postering Chair (Annie): Needed more committee people – 

General Feedback and Discussion:

-The demos were missed!!  Many chairs noted they missed the demos and heard customers say they

missed them too

-Kids Clay Treasure Hunt was great- maybe have something if kid completes it?

-Mixed feelings regarding the need for a greeter and holding area if we do in-booth sales

-Everyone needs to do work shifts if we do in-booth sales- not just chairs- 

-Need to survey all Clay Fest participants from this year and maybe 2019??- Do you want central sales or

in-booth sales – are you willing to do a work shift to ensure that we have a gallery, demonstrations, info

booth, etc with in-booth sales- will you do the show either way?? 

Informal poll of chairs present on central sales vs. in-booth sales

central sales-5 in-booth sales-4 undecided-3

*those in favor of in-booth sales still want work shifts for gallery host, demo, info, greeter

Some discussion on pros and cons of in-booth sales – how to help out of town potters do a work shift or

get a booth sitter, maybe have demo’s outside, gallery host should do gallery sales, maybe greeter-info

could be one person

BOOKKEEPER Chair- We can not have Central Sales without this chair!!!!!!
