new members

old members

  • our members are getting older. this needs to stop.
  • yar thinks we need to reach out to people who don't come anymore, ask them why, ask them for critiques of sudoroom
  • matt proposes a phone bank
  • first we need to create a list of such people. this is a task in itself. starting with anyone who:
    • has attended a meeting
    • has emailed the list
    • has participated in the IRC

omni proposals

New Rent Payment Scheme

Finance / Fundraising working groups propose we adopt the following rent accounting process, where individual operating costs are explicitly and transparently listed, divided appropriately, then compiled for each collective into a round monthly rent that does not fluctuate with minor changes in costs (e.g. we all get a fixed utilities payment, pro-rated based on each group's contributions, rather than a large even split calculated every month based on whatever our bill says):
