Jayme,
 Congratulations upon taking the mantle of President of the CTA. I'll be praying for you as you undertake this awesome responsibility.
 Also, will the new website have chat capabilities? It would be great to have the opportunity to carry on conversations with our brothers and sisters in Christ who also share a love of tattooing. Just a thought.

In Christ,
Bob "tatman64" Bolin

Hey Jayme, Thanks for your service to the LORD as well as the CTA. Thanks for the oppurtunity to share our imput, I'll try to keep it breif.

I'm sure I speak for the majority involved with this site when I say that the artkork on our bodies is in one form or another a type of worship and witness to our LORD. I am always looking for ways to share Christ with those who cross my path. I find myself in situations where it would be great to have a business card with the CTA logo to hand out to those intrested in my body art. The card could direct people to the web adress and could have a blank line on the back for my name. Sometimes it's a little embarrassing taking my shirt off for the checkout lady at the supermarket!!

Speaking of shirts(you know what I mean).

Thanks for all your hard work, your service is truly a blessing.

Lowell

Re: THIS IS YOUR CHANCE.....


[sign in to see URL] will approach one at a time so far.


TATMAN...

We are moving in several facets with the new website. What we have done already has cost us a substantial amount of money but at this point will not have chat capabilities. We are planning on moving onto a much more complex site over the next year but that will depend mainly on donations. The CTA is a not-for-profit donation based organization. So if people are willing to help [sign in to see URL] is no limit to what we can accomplish. I am putting a lot of my own money in so far and I am going to the matt with lots of other resources to gain money to help us grow.

Chat is in the near [sign in to see URL], we are planning on havine it a lot like myspace. Probably not quite that complex but same idea.

[sign in to see URL] will take this idea to the board at our next meeting. I think it could be a great idea and will let you know what the results are.

[sign in to see URL] I get that right??

[sign in to see URL] this point we are not moving towards our own server. It has been discussed and in being put into motion at the appropriate time but I will keep that in mind.

As for articles about [sign in to see URL] are going to expland this message board quite a bit once the site is up and will have a place for many, many different ideas. Once we get the full version (by that I mean the expanded with all additions) of the website [sign in to see URL] will include so much, I dont think anyone is going to be left unsatisfied. BUT having said [sign in to see URL] go back to my original [sign in to see URL] CTA is a "donation based" organization. We can only do what we can raise money to do. I am in the process right now of putting final touches on the 2007 budget, which will be posted on the website. It is also our goal to post the 2008 budget by May [sign in to see URL] everyone can do all in their power to promote, donate and help us raise funds for our plans in 2008. Which include 22 conventions, 4 festivals and possibly a CTA hosted convention (still in the discussion stage).

[sign in to see URL] so much for your questions, your support, involvement and ideas!! I deeply appreicate them!

See ya when the new site goes live!!

Jayme, you mentioned donations about 4 times in the thread. I've been SCREAMING for gift stuff and what nots for a year. T-shirts (long and short), tank tops, patches, mugs, bandanas, etc... all for a "donation" since you are non profit, It has to be for a donation. good t's and that other stuff isnt that expensive and the net profit is good. keep the prices reasonable for everyone and the cta will make a good return too

Re: THIS IS YOUR CHANCE.....


[sign in to see URL], well I was answering quite a few questions and a lot of them depend on how much money the CTA can [sign in to see URL] to what we can anc cannot do.

Did I mention we work off donations??

Now [sign in to see URL], hats, etc, [sign in to see URL] on the plan for Spring 2007 and will be available asap.

[sign in to see URL] of the pages that will be on the site asap is the 2007 budget plan. Being a 501(c)3 [sign in to see URL] our records will be available on a annual basis. We have a board (5) people that decide by vote how the money is spent. Just like any other national business, the treasurer handles the money and dispenses it the way the board see [sign in to see URL] penny spent is accounted for and cannot be spent without two [sign in to see URL] and another board member.

The CTA will be taking donations in five ways:

1. Donations by Our paypal account (which will be on the website)

2 Donations by Snail [sign in to see URL] those who dont do internet transfers.

3. I will be going to organizations, churches, shops and individuals (fellow Christians) and raising money on a one on one basis.

4. Merchandise sales.

5. Speaking engagements

All money raised in these manners will be dispursed according to the published budget plan and current needs of the CTA.


Thanks a lot [sign in to see URL] bless!!
