New business


  • New contract Sarah, (re)negotiation Paulo, status Larry
  • Voting Rights for Chapter/Project Leader:

Dave - Yes; Eoin - open vote to all; Jeff - yes, and make them honorary members; Tom - Yes; Matt - yes; Seba - yes

So, board vote to allow chapter/project leaders to vote is affirmative.

Continued vote - do we reinstate the "honorary memberships" as well


  • Konik (vendor) will warehouse and ship (provide fulfillment services) approved merchandise at no additional cost (other than shipping) to addresses for approved events. This will eliminate the need for storage and will provided better accounting and tracking.
