So that folks are aware, we'll try to keep some general notes going here on items the board is working on. This isn't going to be exhaustive, and isn't going to go into buckets of details, but is intended to clear up some of the "what do they do, and where did that idea come from" sorts of questions. This is informal, and while some clarification questions are appropriate, commentary on actions should be fielded through emailing the board or at board meetings as this forum is not set up to handle those sorts of issues.

the board held an informal meeting today to discuss and flesh out some of the plan for how to manage the member push, and the affiliated items.

briefly, we spoke about:
fundraising via corporate sponsorship/grants
the $1000 challenge grant
how to approach the member drive
events and classes
pr coordination
member storage needs

we crunched some numbers and decided that IF we make the challenge grant, and the lease ends up +/- as we're asking for we'll be in a healthy enough place financially that our development efforts should be focused on getting certain core systems fleshed out rather than seeking out capital. these include improvements to dust collection, first aid, fire safety, electrical power and member storage. orion and videoman are point on that with a little help from metis.

once we have a lease signed, we'll start our big pr push and be sending out a coordinated press release, and press packets to a variety of sources. part of this will include announcing classes (so think about teaching one some time this summer now, so we can schedule it) metis and orkraider are working on that.

we've got a number of standing events and want to make certain that we're not interfering between events, classes and commitments, so we're launching a few tools to make that easier, and karinf will be coordinating that per the position of Event Coordinator that we created at the last board meeting. we also want to get some on hold events back running on a routine basis.

there's more stuff that we're working on that will help with this, but there are pending various parts and aren't finalized enough to announce.

the minutes from last weeks board meeting, the written action of the board relating to the annual meeting and a brief note on the articles and bylaws should be up here:

http://www.tcmaker.org/wiki/doku.php?id ... ection2011

there are (3) documents.
-our may minutes are the business of the meeting
-an explanation of the amended and restated articles and bylaws
-the formal written action of the board which includes the documents dealt with at the meeting.

starting a thread in a moment for discussion about this. we were aiming for a week or so turnaround on getting this out, but because of the complexities of the annual meeting these took a couple of days longer than we were hoping.

Also, things are moving forward on the lease, we don't anticipate any problems, and hope to have it signed in the near future.
