Business

1st Order of Business:

About the same as last time. $600 in snack funds. We are roughly at $5760. We are seeing a significant increase in Paypal. We have roughly 2100 in expenses.

2nd Order of Business:

On the subject of whether the lab will stay where we are, expand into another space, or move. Primarily we need budget information, what is the extra cost per month. Gross numbers to understand the impact and space available.

A good idea will be to find a commercial real estate broker to assist.

To answer Tommy Falgout’s questions on the new lease.

When does our lease expire: The lease will expire in a year and two months at the end of the next leadership’s term.

How much cash and members do we expect to have by that time? No data yet.

What does our ideal space look like? No consensus but will need to ask members.

How much cash and members do we want to move to that ideal space? Unanswerable tonight.

Will need to interview members and gather information before these questions could be answered. Future projections are not immediately possible,

3rd Order of Business:

The leadership will begin proactively tracking members gaining points for classes they run. These benefits are reoccurring monthly. The treasurer will be notified by a board member or an officer if the member met the qualification.
