Grand Hydro
Brad Smith's appearance at last monthly meeting was very well received.
Next monthly meeting topic will be Triple IPAs, possibly featuring El Segundo Power Plant

Membership discounts: Rick is holding off on asking breweries for discounts during the pandemic.
We have 100 active members currently, and Rick has been sending out digital membership cards for new members and renewals.

Deadline for submissions: Wed, Feb 3.
Topics suggested: Doug King promo, Ilan’s idea of Brew with a Falcon videos.

Ilan has volunteered to assume this position. His nomination was seconded with no opposing members. The formal vote will be conducted at the February membership meeting.
Nicolai and Quinlan were nominated to jointly take over Ilan’s current position of Publicity. Nomination was seconded with no opposing members.

Jay Ankeney is writing an article for Zymurgy for the May edition. The club is urging members to support his efforts.
Brew with a falcon Videos: Ilan would like to get 10 volunteers to commit to making videos of their brew process. It would be best to stagger the release of these videos, starting in March. Suggestions: B-roll GoPro that runs continuously, in addition to a separate interview cam. No shooting in portrait mode! We have about 5 volunteers so far.
