TYJP members are allowed, even encouraged, to attend and observe the Board Meetings.  Please contact Michael C. ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) if you are interested in attending the meeting(s).  The Board will meet at a centrally located, inexpensive restaurant, picked usually within a day or so of the meeting; the meetings will begin at 7:15 PM, so please plan to show up to the restaurant by 7:00 PM.
We would like remind everyone that our Happy Hours are held on the third Thursday of each month, unless otherwise specified. 
If you are new to TYJP, please contact the host of the event or send a note to [EMAIL PROTECTED] (tyjp at, so we can look out for you.  We would like to ensure your first event is a pleasant and warm experience.
At a previous quarterly board meeting, the board voted to keep our dues at $10 a year for the calendar 2007 year (January through December).  Here are some of what you can expect for this year:   
-  At events where there is a cost to participate/attend, there will be a lower rate for members.  You will find that this will quickly add up to pay for your dues.  For those hosting events: please make sure to set multiple prices for your event.  We will provide you a list of current members.
-  We will be able to provide food at our planning meetings.
-  We will also be working harder at recruiting new members.  We will be redoing our website.  We will also be making sure happy hours are in a centrally located area (off of I-40 or I-540) the majority of the time, and making sure we are better known within the Jewish community.  If you have other ideas, please talk to someone on the board.
Dues may be paid as such:
    - Pay By Mail: 
        Send $10 check or money order (payable to TYJP) to:
            c/o Michael Cohen
            308 Silk Hope Drive
            Cary, NC 27519
    - Pay By PayPal:  Click on this link.
    - Pay at any upcoming TYJP Event: 
        Pay by check or money order (payable to TYJP), or cash; payment may be given to any TYJP Board Member.
Please do not hesitate to contact Jamie K. at [EMAIL PROTECTED], if you have any questions.  The Board looks forward to seeing you at events.
