  • New mailing list!

OpAl Proposal

  • Becoming a member collective.
  • Cost: Insurance But they're probably not expecting us to pay the 500$ insurance thing
  • The 100$ utility stands
  • We just need people to come to the working groups.
  • Jenny suggests that we offer for a certain price we can film the event and we can give you the footage. Good idea. Money goes to Omni.
  • So we all agree to
  • Why it was asked.
  • Roundtable of how people feel about it.
  • Consequences:
    • Figuring out our membership : What makes a member? What allows people access to the equipment and what are the accountability measures.
    • A log in system for the equipment.
    • Insurance.
    • Organizing space.
    • Mailing lists.
    • Doing outreach.
    • Accepting donations: Gratipay, GoFundMe, other options? Requires a collective bank account (look into credit unions?)
  • Need to advise the omni consensus list and delegates that our proposal is now a proposal for tenancy.
  • Need to organize a day of arranging the new room.
