-^ Status | Accepted/Rejected | +  * propose $400/month, pre-pay 12.5 months ($5000)  JM motioned, SM seconded (see JM's email) 
-^ Moved By | Brenden Ragan | +  * Anthony: thinks $450/month is too high, counter-offered $420; also conceded that the tool room is ours now (given rent owed).  But, subject to 48 hours  
-^ Seconded By | Nick Bannon | +  * AV confirmed they'd be want to move into the front room at $800/month (in addition to middle room)

 +  * Discussions around written agreements with SS 
 +    * period of lease: rolling month-to-month, fixed period, subject to end of head lease.  Security of lease is for the duration of his bond pre-payment

-==== Property Report ==== 
-  * Seems surprisingly clean. Huzzah! 
  
-==== Officer Reports ==== 
-=== Chairpersons Report === 
-  * Grant applications on-going.  Thanks to Skot for putting templates up on the wiki.  Propose final review of Lotterywest application this coming Monday 
  
-=== Treasurers Report === 
-  * See emails 
-  * Assuming a typical month, we're alright 
-  * However, under new arrangements, we'll have a $660/month deficit, but SS's office will add $450/month to it; see below. 
- 
-=== Events Report === 
-  * Rapture: 7 members, 24 non-members 
-  * NoizeMaschin: only had about 35 people show up out of the 140 people who had expressed interest via Facebook.  Discussions about price-point for entry to get more people in, consensus was that $10 is a very reasonable price, maybe we just need to advertise more on campus, etc. 
-  * Arduino U: discussions on Skot's Midi course notes, also offer of a topic from an Arduino U non-member (EPROM programmer); need to have more 'lab instructors' for future/broader sessions 
- 
-=== Membership Officers Report === 
-  * Committee accepts membership register as it stands 
-  * Request for a report (in CitrusDB) that can show who the current financial members are 
- 
-=== Infrastructure Officers Report === 
-  * We have infrastructure, but work has been suspended pending lease take-over 
-  
-==== Sub-Committee Reports ==== 
-None 
- 
-==== Agenda Items ==== 
-  * Chattel Purchase 
-    * JM liked Skot's suggestion of 10 months of rent up-front on the middle office (for budget recording studio) at $500/month plus ongoing membership of $500/month for their existing office.  Skot to follow up with AV. 
-    * Apparently there has been some confusion/miscommunication re: lease status with AudioVault.  PD proposed the reintroduction of the co-tennants meeting, BR seconded.  Time to be confirmed. 
-    * SquirtzShirtz rental: Anthony yet to respond to JM's email re: $450/month for office plus $450/month for storage area, backdated to 11-Dec-2011.  JM to follow up on Tuesday. 
-    * Anthony currently owes $2.5k+; as there is no contract between Anthony and Andrew -- much less us -- we really need to sort his debt and our ongoing arrangements out asap 
-  * Longer-term property 
-    * commercial prices will kill us 
-    * Pepper-corn leases: DH has started talking to the City of Fremantle 
-    * Ongoing grant for rent: Department of Commerce for Innovation and Tech funding 
-    * Look at what membership would cost if rent went away (e.g. if we were gifted a space) 
-    * Outside of rent, we're paying $250/month on electricity, then insurance, then Internet access 
-    * BR suggests we sort out chattel and put an offer back to -core, but that we also start impressing upon the membership that we really need to plan beyond the 18 months, and we really need to stand up a sub-committee to actively pursue options 
-  * Events: 
-    * JM suggested was raised for more Open Days that might focus on specific skills 
-    * AL suggested we also have more, simpler and cheaper training events to get more people in and raise more money
