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.
For those that are new to TYJP, we do not ask for dues until you have been to at least three events; this gives you a trial period to "try us out."
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.

Where:  Lindt Chocolate, Crabtree Valley Mall (lower level, near Sears), Raleigh (RSVPs Required)
Cost:  $10.00 per person  
"There's nothing better than a good friend, except maybe a good friend with chocolate."
Join us for a TYJP favorite as we enjoy another evening of chocolate tasting at Lindt Chocolate, Crabtree Valley Mall.  Shona, store manager, will again treat us to an extensive chocolate tasting that includes all product lines that Lindt offers.  You'll learn a little bit about the history of Lindt and how chocolate is made.
As always, the store will need to remain open to the public during this event, however, Shona and another staff member will give us their undivided attention during this time.
Please RSVP to Deb T. ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) by February 17th so that she has an idea of the expected head count.
From I-440:
Take I-440 to the "US-70 West/Glenwood Avenue" exit.  If traveling on I-440 Westbound ("Outer Beltline") this will be the first exit, then continue to turn right at the end of the ramp; if traveling on I-440 Eastbound ("Inner Beltline"), there is only one exit, and you will need to turn left at the end of the ramp.  Continue past the mall, and then turn left onto Creedmore, then turn left again at the first light to enter the back parking deck.  Lindt is on this side of the mall.
From North Raleigh/US-70:
Take US-70/Glenwood Avenue south-east towards downtown Raleigh.  Turn right onto Creedmore, then left at the first light to enter the back parking deck.  Lindt is on this side of the mall.
