February 2016 Newsletter – ASNT President’s Message
ASNT has started our changes to the program formats and it was a SMASHING SUCCESS!! Our first meeting of the year used the format of a Group Exercise. This month, we rotate to the previous format of a guest speaker. Between what the membership knew about the person we were discussing, or different methods of interpretation, what we unearthed about our chart subjects grew quite interesting. Where the monthly speakers have remained more at a “higher concept level”, the Group Exercises now allow us to gather the experience of the whole group attending. This month, we have two speakers. Please refer to the article in this newsletter.
Last month Wayne Hall was our “Unbiased Moderator”. Please refer to his articles on the preparation for any Group Exercise in this newsletter. Bring your color-coded markers and other astrology deciphering tools as needed for your style and preference.
Another implemented facet is the collection of $5.00 for members at the door and $10.00 for nonmembers for the Group Exercise sessions. The months where we have a formal speaker/lecture, (this month and every other month) we will be collecting $10.00 from members and $20.00 from non-members. We can take cash, check or credit card.
Location, location, location! We are still looking for a more centralized location, but have narrowed it down to a few good ones, one of which comes to us at no cost. After last month’s door fees ($50.00 total) plus a potential savings on the meeting space, I figure we would be putting around $75 – $80 a month in the bank. Some food for thought there!
Best Wishes, and see you on the 12th at First Jefferson UU in Ft. Worth!
ASNT President 2015-2017
