MORE PROGRESS, AND UPCOMING FUNDRAISING EVENTS!

 

HEALTH INSURANCE FOR ENTERTAINERS

---------------------------------------------------------------

February's meeting started with entertainer member Janene signing up for ACE sponsored health insurance. This is a new offering for us, and we're proud of her for going first and testing the waters. We hope to have a great many more in the months and years ahead.

 

We're working out exactly how to collect monthly dues and insurance payments in the most convenient way possible - we'd like to see an ACE representative come to your club and collect in person and give a receipt on the spot.

 

NEW ACE WEB SITE

------------------------------

Our hard working Secretary is toiling away on a new Oregon ACE web site. We hope to unveil it soon.

 

VENDOR OF NOTE

---------------------------

Gateway Security has renewed for 2004 their pledge of big discounts to ACE members on excellent state of the art burglar alarms, security cameras, security video recording devices, and more. They have incredible technology, and are great to work with: call 888-826-9116 and ask about the ACE discount.

 

FUNDRAISING

---------------------

Fundraising events are now planned from March 19 through early May. The confirmed ones are Tuesday, March 30 at Dante's and Saturday, April 10 at Stars Beaverton. Bring your friends and help us raise money to protect our industry. Look for ads in this and other magazines.

 

OLCC

---------

We've got pretty good progress on the enforcement front. While there are

still tickets being written from time to time that seem arbitrary - at least from second hand accounts - we hope to protect ACE member clubs from that very soon, and get a much stronger guarantee of equal enforcement and an equal standard for all.

 

After meeting with OLCC senior managers in late January, we've agreed on some goals with them:

 

To establish a set of guidelines, articulated by ACE, that are mutually agreed as being (a) clear and non-subjective, and (b) in compliance with OLCC regulations, such that:

 

0. The guidelines can be easily and clearly described, taught, learned, and followed;

1. Any observer can determine, unambiguously and without recourse to subjective standards, whether an entertainer is within the guidelines; and

2. If an entertainer is definitely within the guidelines, then the entertainer must also be in compliance with OLCC regulations; and

3. It is possible for an entertainer to be outside of the guidelines but perhaps be in compliance with OLCC regulations.

 

Once these goals are in place, ACE can offer training together with a money-back guarantee of no OLCC fines for entertainer behavior.

 

Next up, we have a scheduled meeting in late February (after we go to press, but before you read this) to work out similar guidance from local law enforcement regarding the law enforcement of "lewd behavior" statutes.

 

Finally, big thanks are due to Claude DaCorsi and Mystique Knight for their role in the last OLCC meeting - their time and expertise were extremely valuable. We hope they can attend the next one as well.

 

See you all at the fund-raisers! Look for the ads!
