Special Meeting -- March 7, 2010
The Board of Directors held a special meeting at 2007 Bert Avenue, Austin, TX 78704, starting at 3:15 pm. The following directors (constituting a quorum of the full board) were present at the meeting: President Kathy Lee and Treasurer Pam Chambers. The following directors were absent: Robert Gardner. Robert McGarey (Executive Director) and Richard Cowley were also present at the meeting.
Leslie. Bob reported that Leslie resigned because of her current load of work and school and some physical problems and the increased demands of the board right now. Everyone expressed their appreciation for Leslie's work, and wished her the best!
Meetup.com. Bob said that he and Richard had developed a wonderful site on Meetup, and then Meetup decided we were a commercial venture and erased the site. Bob will be contacting them to ask them to reconsider.
Finances. Bob announced that after discussion with Kathy and reviewing our finaances, they decided we had to let Dylan go, which Bob did on March 1st. Bob said he sold two scooters in the last three days and has one more sale in the works, so he's feeling pretty good about our finances right now, even though the Assertiveness workshop doesn't seem to be filling very fast.
He also located about $400 worth of batteries that Dylan thought were bad that probably aren't, which will help. He also talked with Andrew at Habibi's Hutch and got permission to staff an info table there, and did so on Friday and plans to do so again on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. He also told Andrew that if he hears any rumors about the Center, to please tell us so we can nip them in the bud.
Spring Fling. Bob pointed out that since the permits for the fling were prohibitively expensive, we won't be doing the big version of the fling. However, we still need to figure out what we ARE going to do. Also, we need to discuss what we want the CSR crew to do and the volunteers from the Reformed Congregation of the Goddess.
Since there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at around 3:45 pm. Minutes submitted by Robert McGarey, Executive Director, March 7, 2010.
