Consent Agenda

Officer Reports

  • I have to schedule our Annual Meeting by November 30th according to our bylaws
    • Proposal to make annual meeting the next board meeting
  • The Annual Meeting is where we elect leadership
  • Nobody has expressed interest in becoming a board member, but some have expressed interest in stepping down
    • We should figure out what we need to do to make board membership more appealing, easier to manage
  • Movie / Cleanup day huge success, no thanks to me!
    • Big ups to Jeff Crews, Phil, and everyone else who showed up and cleaned. Looks amazing!
  • 501c3: in my sights
    • Interested parties, we need to form a hit squad and get crackin'
  • Lease renewal: we need to do it soon (by end of November)
    • 2 year seems to have the most agreeance
  • Paypal balance as of 9/6: $2,274.47
  • BB&T balance as of 9/6: $1,988.52 (- $895 pending rent check = $1897.66 actual)
  • August income:
    • TBD
    • TBD
  • August expenses:
    • CREH-Snow (rent) - 895.00
    • Premium Assignment (insurance) - 90.86
    • Others TBD

I've been out at Burning Man, so haven't had a chance to update the income / expenses details for August - I hope to add that info by the end of the week.

Ashley sent out a link to another hackerspace's IRS Form 1023 - the application form for the 501(c)3 status - so hopefully that will give us a jumpstart on our application!
