Attending: Carol, Tom, Jeffrey, Alex
II. Current Business
A. Discussion of Upcoming Elections: We will be dedicating time over the next few civics meetings to unpacking some of the questions (e.g. voting eligibility, process, position descriptions, etc.) listed at https://collectiveagency.co/2012/03/01/election-structure-team/
April 1: Begin accepting nominations
April 15 or May 1: Begin voting
May 15: Finalize Vote and Training for New Council Members
June 15: Induct new Council
We are looking for people interested in helping construct policy and facilitate the election process. Anyone want to jump in with Molly, Jeffrey, and Tom?
B. Discussion of Flex Membership or Temp Hold on Membership
We discussed revenue and whether members could place a temp hold on paying (while they are out of town or country for example). The consensus was this would pose negative impacts on what we can pay staff and introduce too much variability on revenue (e.g. big drops around Dec holiday season). In sum, we felt this was currently against our interests as a cooperative organization.
III. Old Business
A. Council is reworking Proposal 3 from last week. We should see it soon again.
IV. Announcements and Events
Exciting things happening! More calendar updates are coming from members.
