    September 14, 2021 Ray, Homer and Marla enjoy a pleasant evening during our September meetup.   •The meeting was held on James’ birthday in his adorable backyard and it was a lovely night. Great food, great ambiance, great people.  I’ll post pics at the end of the email ;) •James gave us a rundown of the online stuff. We have about 60 Word Addicts members total and 120 email subscribers.  We have 2,000 Twitter followers, 80 Instagram Followers (better than 10 I guess haha!), and 600+ Facebook followers/friends.  •A huge benefit for members is the online presence and promotion that we offer as a group.

Keeping The Mission In Mind James gave a short presentation on the Strategic Plan, a business plan for not-for-profit groups. He suggests after the book launch, as we resume our regular monthly meetings, that we spend at least a little time building short and medium-term goals, always aligned with our mission and values. 6. Launch Talk We did not talk much on this topic.  James asked each person present (Amy S, Amy J, Ray, Jenna) how they plan to get books moving. Each person shared. All other coordination for getting books sold will occur over the next two weeks on Messenger.
