Consent Agenda

  • Creation of savings account to maintain a certain core amount of capital
  • Amend bylaws to empower board members to appoint administrative delegates
  • Will we issue tax receipts for items donated to the space and if so how do we appraise items and who will issue the receipt?

Punted on everything except for

Officer Reports

  • Apologies for being somewhat out-of-pocket!
  • Big thank-you to our new board members, in particular Darren who took treasurer and freaking sprinted with it
  • Also big thanks to Phil, Jeff, Lenore, Justis, Mark, Peter, and anyone else who has worked to create and host events here at the space.

We are Alan's nerd family.



  • Account balances:
    • Paypal balance as of 12/6: $0
    • BB&T balance as of 12/6: $5215.30
    • WePay balance as of 12/6: $304
    • Total balance as of 12/6: $5519.30

  • December income:
    • Paypal - $289.50
    • WePay - $511.00
    • Total: $800.50

  • December expenses:
    • CREH-Snow (rent) - $945.00 (New rent plus the increase we didn't pay in November)
    • Premium Assignment (insurance) - Not paid
    • Total: $945.00

BB&T will start charging us a $10 monthly fee unless we can go in by the end of the year with our 503c information and switch over to a community account. If we do this there will be no monthly fee. I need to the account which will require a minimum of one of the existing people listed on the account to come in with me.

Expenses are slightly higher than income with month but there are still a few unpaid dues, some going back a few months, which I need to go over with Lisa in order to figure out who to pester. I accidentally charged a couple people the transaction fee which I could refund and hopefully shouldn't be difficult to do.

Totals are above. Darren will work with people who owe dues. Our income is behind our expenses so far, but should be fine once dues are paid up. We Pay transition is going pay. There was some confusion among attendees about how to pay with We Pay, so there were some tutorials following the formal meeting. Lisa and Darren will have a planning session.


Lenore used her time to thank Jeff for picking up and assembling the futon. Lisa suggested we should have a wiki page for investigating theft insurance.

Public Relations

Phil created a Google+ page, tweeted, blogged with Jeff's content. If anyone has content, he can blog it. Met a reporter from WRAL who was coming out of Beyu the night of the election. Phil ahd Scott talked to her about Splat Space and they might do a story about it.

Shaw particularly liked the fresh blog content. He suggested we should keep changing the date to make it look fresher.

We will have a movie night this Friday.
