Here's February's mid-month update about the current state of Transcending Boundaries and our various projects.  In the last few weeks we had a meeting about TBC 2016, had a promotion on the board, and more!  

As always, if you are interested in learning more about Transcending Boundaries, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We'd love to hear from you!



No big news to report.  We are working on defining our roles and searching for 2 individuals to join the board as members at large.   

laurel is looking into the YWCA's Stand Against Racism program.


TBC 2015

Sara made a great feedback form that we invite you to fill out, whether or not you attended TBC 2015.  Completing the form makes you eligible for $5 off 2016 registrations.  

Aimee will complete the last of the silent auction transactions soon.


TBC 2016

Our next meeting will be Sunday, February 21, at 4:00 PM.  We will be meeting at Aimee's office in downtown Springfield and have a google hangout for those of you who can't attend in person.  We'll try to have a draft agenda by the 18th.  We still need many volunteers to help with everything from little projects to department heads. 

Micah and Saera have been getting information from hotels, so hopefully we will have a conversation about our options and be scheduling some hotel tours.  

To get a better idea of what we do, and so we can draw more volunteers to help us out, we need your help documenting what we do.  Please comment on this document in Google Docs.  I'd like to have something ready to put on the website by February 22


Website & Social Media

Ian is working on building a basic structure for the website.  laurel has been working on restoring old content and building an organizer section to keep old meeting minutes, notes and other important information.  

We would love to have folks willing to write blog posts for the new site!  

Saera has been working on developing a social media strategy which we should have an update in the next few weeks.  Thank you Saera!    We will need a team of folks to help with social media once that is in place, so if you're addicted to Twitter or love Facebook, this is a great way to help!


Other Events

This is just a short list of the many thing happening in the next few months!
