"Can we, as a country, all agree

xmag.com : January 2004:A.C.E. News

December's open meeting (always the second Tuesday of each month) was moderately attended due to the holidays - 15 people put their names on the sign-in sheet. Early in 2003 there were months when 15 attendees would seem like quite a crowd. Now it's typical, or even a little light. That's called progress.
 
The most significant developments and announcements at this meeting were:
 
* Formation of a Fundraising Committee including one of the industry's
leading lights, Rick Kalles, and the hard working, reliable, and always
charming Jeannie of G-Spot.
 
* Continued discussion between ACE leadership and new OLCC director
Teresa Kaiser.
 
* Announcement of an Awards Committee, which we expect will begin work soon on a planned December 2004 statewide Awards Gala.
 
* A pledge by Ryan Thierry of Xcitement magazine to run the ACE
newsletter each month, just as Exotic Magazine does.
 
Fundraising
-------------------------
The formation of the Fundraising Committee is a significant step forward
for ACE. Like all membership organizations, ACE meets regularly to
talk, exchange news, and keep the membership informed and focused. But
in all such organizations, it's the committees that get the real work
done.
 
The Fundraising Committee is chartered with organizing and publicizing
monthly fund-raising events to benefit ACE, hopefully starting in
January or February and continuing every month thereafter. It will also
be taking charge of other fundraising efforts, such as implementing the
ACE Tax, and marketing and selling the beautiful "Bill of Rights - Void
Where Prohibited" T-Shirts recently donated to ACE by Randy Kaiser of
Stars Cabaret - who also serves the industry as ACE Treasurer.
 
OLCC
-------------------------
We are all cautiously optimistic that a long and unhappy chapter of poor
communications and mistrust will soon draw to a close. The recent word
that ACE will likely be formally invited to OLCC's January industry
summit comes as very welcome news. The summit happens in mid-January
just after our Tuesday, January 13th ACE meeting - so we won't have a
report for you then, but we will be asking you for your input on how ACE
will be representing you and your club at that important summit. If you
can't make the meeting, how will your voice be heard?
 
Awards
-------------------------
Championing the concept of an annual Awards Gala is ACE President Claude DaCorsi. Claude believes - and your humble newsletter staff agree - that an annual awards event serves several useful functions. Most important of these is, it focuses all our member organizations and their
staffs on delivering a quality customer experience. Sure, we all do that anyway, but there's something sweet about being recognized by your peers that you are the best bartender, or best waiter/waitress, or best security staffer in Oregon's adult hospitality industry.
 
And how much better will business be - and how much better will the customer experience be - at a club where the staff are competing for prizes, honors, and bragging rights? Can you say bigger tips?
