I'm coming late to an awareness of this
issue, but I'd like to add that
I support hiring Jenny both temporarily now to get the taxes done (a very
urgent matter at this point!) and in an established role in the future, and
would like to offer my thanks for all the work she's put in gratis already.
I hope we all can bear in mind that the top priority needs to be what's
good for the Omni as a whole, and high on the list of priorities should be
what's fair to the individual members as well.

Steve, Julian, would you agree to Omni hiring
Jenny at least to do this
year's taxes? In my opinion, there is zero chance to hire a CPA who has as
much background knowledge of the Omni's finances and would be willing to do
it for as low a fee as she is charging.
Jenny had suggested a trial period anyway. We can revisit the issue of
hiring her permanently afterwards.
