Agenda

  • Approve Yestermonth's Minutes
  • Consent Agenda
    • Desk-Members: We make 3 spaces available in the corner room for members to rent for an extra $50/month on top of the regular dues. Space is available on a first come basis. If more than three people are initially interested, we pick three via a lottery. Desk-Members can keep the space for as long as they are a member in good standing and pay the extra rent. Desk-Members are responsible for keeping the area reasonably clean and clutter will be confined to their designated area. Clutter is OK but no garbage (no open food and beverage, no odorous substances, etc)! Violations of cleanliness standards will receive one warning and then can result in eviction by member vote at the next meeting. Desk-Members must vacate their space if their membership or rent payments lapse. If there is more demand than space available, we will revisit pricing or real-estate at that time.
