April’s NOTABA Meeting Minutes

NOTABA Meeting April 2, 2013:


Mixed reviews on keys.  Some work, some do not.  Will clarify

  • What do we use to clean the kiosk?
  • Call Nancy (428-7640) if your kiosk needs immediate attention(graffiti, etc), can also call 311 or Kathy or Aaron


  • The website committee is now formally the Media relations committee
  • Updated administrators of facebook   and web page, etc. (Steve and Suzi)
  • Working on a central website that links all the merchant association websites together, there would be a directory, etc. Idea is that you could find all the businesses in Rochester at one location. Cost would be $500/$60 a month, split between all participating Merchant associations.  This would also enable streamlined billing.
  • NOTA fest committee meeting April 3.

Media Relations Committee

The committee met March 29 to further update this webpage and link the two facebook pages.   NOTA News and Neighborhood of the Arts Business Association, facebook pages have administrators and share information relevant to mission statements.    NOTA News will focus on neighborhood events and news, NOTABA will be any business association news, grants, and services that serve new businesses.

Expertise is needed in Word Press.   A short term commitment (2 months) would enable committee to better manage information.    Anyone interested please respond here or to facebook.  The role includes coffee and bagels at meetings.
