Kassie talks about classes

The Facilities manager talked about resources and classes. Class development -- When we move to a new space, we will start classes and hopefully that will bring in lots of income :-) Kassie brought the new board members up to speed on the classes business plan, and how we may do outreach or advertising.

Status on new space proposal:

Clif gave a quick update on the Wilson space. They accepted our proposal, and we are waiting for some more info on the utilities so we can proceed on drawing up the lease. We probably need a few more space committee members before we pull the trigger.
