New Marketing and Merchandise Committee

August 29th, 2006 by Lori Skinner

It’s time for the fun to begin!  We’re putting together a Marketing and Merchandising Committee.

Our Mission Statement is:

“The purpose of the marketing and merchandising committee is to develop, design and market materials and merchandise for the purpose of fundraising and promotion of the D2Care organization.”

We’ll keep you posted on who we are and our progress. 

Here’s the fun part.  We want YOUR input.  Let us know what you want.  Is it T-shirts and bumper stickers? Or how about hats and coffee mugs?  We’ll have to start out slow so we want to know what you want most.  Don’t forget to include colors in your suggestions.

You can email me by going to the D2Care “About Us” page and then to the “Board” page.  Click on the “Send a Message” link next to my name.

It is with deep sorrow that I have to anounce that I have accepted Pam Andress’ resignation as treasurer. She did not make this decision lightly or easily, but life has gotten in the way and she needs to devote more of her time to her family.

Myra has agreed to take on the role of treasurer. So, please extend a warm welcome to Myra, Treasurer, D2Care

Well, it’s time for another progress update for D2Care. 

We are getting very close to completing our Bylaws with only a few decisions yet to make in the body of the Bylaws. Once completed and approved by the Board, you will be able to find a copy on our website.  Our first “official” Board meeting will be held on September 10. Visit our website a few days after that, and read the minutes.

The Membership Committee is working with the Board to answer a few remaining questions concerning the membership Articles.  The application is complete, but has to be converted to a format that can be used on the website.  Look for our announcement that we are accepting memberships.

The Web Committee is progressing in the development of an outline for the website. They have collected “dream big” ideas for the website and are now categorizing those ideas for the menu. The next pages to be developed will be the membership and donation pages.

The Funding Committee has collected “need help applications” from other nonprofits that provide funds for animal rescue and vet care. They are reviewing these to create an application that will work for us.

As soon as the Bylaws are complete and approved by the Board, we will complete the paperwork for the 501c3 application. Once that paperwork is sent in, we begin the process of writing policies to augment and support the Bylaws.  The Bylaws are the organizations foundation, while the policies are the structure and framework of the organization.
