Tweets can be done as frequently or infrequently as possible.  For my
business I tweet maybe once a week, sometimes once a month, depending on
how busy I am, and if I have anything tweet worthy.  Sometimes just having
your name out there on these network, and following other blindness groups,
spreads awareness.  I'd be happy to do both or either.  I also tween for
another nonprofit that I am involved with, notifications of events and
such.  I am very much in favor of both. We can use either as little or as
much as agreed upon.

I don't think a nonprofit facebook page will cause too many problems.
 Because these pages are usually attached to a person, I will need to look
into making this a stand alone page for Abilitiessoft, etc.  I'm sure there
is a way, I just need to look into it first.  I will keep the board up to
date on the progress. And it will feature only acceptable public stories
and progress of projects, what we put on there is up to us, no one needs to
have their identity compromised.

The conventions could be attended by anyone, but as you said we can figure
that out in the future.  John, you wouldn't need to be traveling if you
aren't comfortable doing so.

I will begin working on official minutes this week, and incorporate all the
previous emails from the start of the list.  After I post that to the board
I will post them on a more regular basis.
