Officers' reports:

Treasurer: Kevin has the numbers for membership growth and decline. We could be a little bit more proactive about reminding members to pay their dues. Talked about what causes the high attrition. The foremost cause seems to be the size and state of the space.

Progress on the new space search

Not much but we should get Marks document finished up and send it off.

Kids day number two

We think it would be a good idea but haven't made any plans.

Other topics of discussion:

Kassie suggested that in terms of grant writing we could get some UofO student to do an internship and write a grant.

Action Items:



  • Contact Mark and get the current proposal for new land lords
  • email the group about how to improve the space.



  • Talk to Liz and schedule the next family hack day!


  • Send us a graph of membership growth and attrition
