Hey folks -- let's get some agenda points started for next Wednesday night. We'll have the back room at Common Roots again & it'll be down to business.
So far we have a draft
constitution; we need to get that finalized and established. We also need by-laws
drafted and agreed upon. It's tedious but we can probably hammer through a bunch of them in one sitting. The draft of our proposed by-laws, what we have so far, is here in the Wiki
. Please, folks, give it some time this weekend if you can at all. Remember, the conventions we're using are boldface for additions
, and italics for "deletions"
in the Wiki text. (I think Paul recently got strikethrough enabled in the Wiki, too, but I'm not sure how/whether folks are using that.) The more bylaws we can get refined ahead of time, the more painless they'll be in the meeting.
We need to get ourselves established as an entity so we can start collecting dues
, and of course we need to decide how we're going to do that. (Hello, by-laws!
I've been looking around, along with some other folks (Nick, Medios, etc. -- thanks guys!) and there are definitely some good options out there for potential workshop spaces
. Info here
, and a bunch more here
. (I might even try to visit this one
today with my camera.) There's also some more info in the Wiki
I plan to attend Studio Bricolage
's steering-committee meeting
on Monday night*
, and I'll be bringing location questions & a stack of commercial real-estate info with me. I'll report back on Wednesday (and most likely post about it here on the forum, as well).
OK, gonna post this now; I still haven't even had coffee yet, let alone breakfast. Thoughts? Additions? Concerns? Pie? Reply reply reply! *EDIT: My bad -- that's not until Monday the 13th, but Michael & I are actually sitting here with Steve J. in Leonardo's Basement as I type this. So we will have stuff to talk about, related to the search for space! - 4/4/09, 10:00 AM
