Warrior Nation CANADA - Committee minutes
« on: March 21, 2007, 12:16:38 PM »
To all Warrior Nation members in the CANADA region (East and West):
Please review and give your feedback on the items in the minutes of the Canada East committee meeting.  These are the subject of ongoing discussions as recommendations to the Board of Directors who reserve final judgment.



Date: March 17, 2007

Time: 3:00 to 4:15 pm


Structure of Canada East Region Ideas for BOD

S1 - Appointed Committee by BOD (Regional head, Secretary, Treasurer, PRO) - yes
this was selected as the best of the three options.
Advantage of this structure is better teamwork


S2 - Members in the region democratically vote in their Committee members  - No

S3 - Appointed Manager who chooses his/her committee  - No

S4 - Merger into one region CANADA with one head and one manager in every major city No

Business Outreach and Public Relations

B1 - Recruiting initiatives University initiatives (connect up with the local University caribbean/trini clubs ), tap into the local community via Caribbean newspapers, simple business cards to hand out at events

B2 - Marketing initiatives talk to local trini  business owners, organize proposals and links with established Caribbean/trini w to web sites e.g Toronto-lime.com,  generic business cards for board member, a banner to display at events in gta e.g Caribana

B3 - Attracting Sponsors - talk to local business owners but we agreed this may be a difficult task. Business members with WN seems to be best bet for now, until WN becomes well known or 2010 APPROACHES.

Activities and Events

A1 - Plans for the summer and the rest of the year   Warrior Nation Family day(change name form sweat) including a sweat,(activities for children, )  Plan to hold it in Toronto.

WN lime ( members meet to play cards and hang out to in attempt to tighten and reinforce nation membership bond)

the Board of directors hold a meeting in the early part of the summer to plan.


Question and Answers Session

Q1 - What is the local group trying to accomplish? - We reviewed the discussion of the recent General Body Meeting.  The BOD want to increase the number of supporters and attract sponsors.

Adjournment at 4:10 pm

WN members from all regions are invited to respond. Any and all ideas will be greatly appreciated.
We would especially like Recommendations/suggetions on Regional structure, marketing initiatives and sponsorship.
Try to stick to topic and keep the facetiousness outta this thread.
** P. S - USE THE appropriate asiged code to reposnd eg. S1 or a1.

if its a new topic or idea just make it clear that is is such .

Perhaps the epitome of a Trinidadian is the child in the third row class with a dark skin and crinkly plaits who looks at you out of decidedly Chinese eyes and announces herself as Jacqueline Maharaj.- Merle Hodge
