Proposal to save money and increase membership fees (Globerman)

  • Proposal: Poll membership on methods of generating additional income to cover Community Manager expenses: raise membership dues (and by how much), implement nominal student membership dues, or some combination. Goal is to either have additional revenue stream in place to mostly cover this expense, or have made decision to discontinue the position by 1/1/2019.

Scott asks to get a proposal typed up for this topic for review by the entire board, especially for new board members. Important topic, but should address on board (to get agreement) before we go to the general membership. Brian promises to expand on this proposal and distribute this to the board.


Nothing further.


 Andree Motioned for Adjournment
