Casino Night

Dear ALA Members:

I wanted to give you an update on the Casino Night we held on July 29th in Scottsdale to raises funds for the ALA. First of all a huge thank you to Certified Benz and Beemer for hosting the event at no costs to the association and that alone is worth thousands of dollars saved.

The ALA took in $4,600.00 in profit to go towards education and legislative needs. The vendor sponsorships covered all the costs of the food, casino tables and staffing. We could not have raised as much money without the assistance from local and national sponsors. The current ALA board members and volunteers put in a lot of time and energy to make this event go smoothly. The ALA pre-sold seventy-five tickets for the event and had just over one hundred attendees. I think this would be a great annual event based on business and weather in mid-September.

Thank you all for your support of The Arizona Limousine Association.

If you have any questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to call me at 602-350-5714 or visit our website at azlimousineassociation.com

Best regards,

Jeff Conly
President
Arizona Limousine Association

Discussion Old Business

Membership committee Marla and Ted.  Marla has drafted a letter to send out with invoices.  We need to work on increasing membership for 2017.

Membership fees- Full amount will be due until July.  At that time the rate will be prorated.

Motion Jeff C, second Keith.  All in favor.

Other committees that need to be created are Marketing and Education.

Jeff G brought up attendance to general meetings.  Discussed having ample notice of meeting date.  Jim Luff suggested no more than 30 days notice. There should only be 2 reminder emails to be sent after initial email.  Anything more than that becomes junk.

Discussion regarding education.  Jim suggested we bring different speakers into the general meetings such as accountants, compliance experts, law enforcement, mechanics, etc.  This would help educate members on ways to improve and help their business function.

Group discussed having Kelly Sacali from Phoenix Airport and Joe Guinn with DOT compliance come to next meeting as our education experts.

Parking passes for the NCAA final 4 Event can be purchased at parkingjuju.com

Jim brought up an idea to help attract members and benefit association.   He suggested a Casino night sponsored by Chosen Payments.  It would bring members together new and old and serve as a fundraiser.  Looking at a May/June time frame.  He will do more research as to what it will take to put it on and report back at the next meeting.

New Business

Vendor email once a month.  Suggested that we allow a vendor email to members once a month.  All liked the idea.  We will discuss further at next meeting.

Keith inquired about having the next meeting at the Airport meeting location.  Will discuss further.
