New Business

  • Brian: Upgrading Zoom from free to Pro: no discount for non-profits, but we can pay annual for $150 instead of $15/mo. No objections expressed.
  • Brian: LastPass licensing. No objections expressed to letting Ski keep his account due to his longstanding relationship with the Board.
  • Brian: GuideStar still shows our 501(c)(3) status as revoked. Brian contacted their support, and they said they get that information directly from the IRS. Brian will reach out to IRS and see what he can find out.
