March Meeting Notes

Hi everyone! We had a good meeting on March 7th.

We discussed the positions we needed to fill. Sarah agreed to be the Events Committee Chair, and I agreed to be the Secretary. After each meeting, I will try to get a meeting summery posted on this blog as soon as I can. We are still looking for people to fill these positions-

-STEERING COMMITTEE CHAIR:- serve as first point of contact for WIA Chicago Chapter- organize time and place of meetings- prepare agenda, facilitate the meeting- responsible for main wiachicago@yahoo.com email, answering inquiries, forwarding relevant information, keep distribution list up-to-date, other duties as they arise

-TREASURER:- maintain chapter financial records- submit income /expense to WIA International- collect money at fundraising events

The annual WIA meeting will be on April 19th in CA.

WIA is thinking of using http://animationblogspot.com/ to set up their site. It is another blogspot where animators can set up their own blogs. It looks like a really good site with lots of great animation blogs. Check it out. There’s some great information!

The Women in Animation Symposium will be held at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio on April 13-16. It looks like they have a good line up of great speakers, portfolio reviews, and they are still looking for short films to be submitted. For more information check their blogspot- http://women-in-animation-symposium.blogspot.com/ If anyone is interested in going to represent the WIA Chicago chapter, please contact Katy- chicagowia@yahoo.com

The next meeting will be on Wed, April 4th at 6pm. We’re going to try to change the location to the library, otherwise it will be held at Chicago Place in the food court. Check back in April for the meeting location. Also, if you are participating in the flipbook project, please bring your finished flipbooks to the meeting.

Oh that sounds like a good meeting! I will be at the next one on April 4th- fresh from the theatre thing I'm doing.

Is anyone thinking of going to the Symposium? It sounds interesting.

The Animation Blogspot sounds like a good way to get involved with other animators. I've never heard of it before, but now I've got another good place to check things out. So kudos.

see you next meeting!
