Committee Meeting 2010.09.21


Property Stuff

  • Possible warehouse in Osbourne Park for 24k/yr - waiting to hear back so we can go see.

Finance Stuff:

  • Chairman's ID → Paypal with Great Urgency (we have fees in limbo there)
  • Overdue fees protocol - when Treasurer went to pay rent last month, we had 1400 owing (2/3 of which by committee members), which sucked, and he couldn't pay. Still need to scrape together the extra outgoings bill too ($700)
  • Paypal commission - should we absorb the 1.6% commission, or add it to fees?
  • Bank: empty, once this month's rent and insurance are paid.


  • 1 new full member (Paul Stone)
  • 1 new assoc. member (Alwyn Llyod-Nixon)
