Meeting Summary — 5/21/2020

There was no presentation at this morning’s meeting, held via Zoom. In our commercials, we talked about how each of us was thinking “outside the box” to serve our customers. Pat mentioned that he had one-on-ones with Rich K and Joe; he also reminded us that a one-on-one doesn’t need to be a face-to-face meeting — a phone conversation to catch up an see how business is going is just as good. Ivan reminded everyone to reach out to BOB members who we haven’t seen in a while — it’s easier to get on a videoconference at 7:30am than it is to get to the Omega Diner.
