Membership Dues

The general proposal agreed to on Tuesday, May 6 was to charge $50/month for dues, strongly encouraging members to donate via PayPal for privacy reasons.

This amount will be re-evaluated as expenses become more well known.

As of COB on the date of this report, we have 22 dues paying members establishing a base budget of $1,100 to cover Rent, Insurance and Internet for the space.

Budget Principles Proposal

These were unofficially adopted as the Budget Principles at the planning meeting on May 13:

  • Our Monthly Expenses (Rent, Insurance, Internet, Basic Supplies) shall remain under a fixed amount per month to be fully fundable by member dues.
  • Membership dues alone must be able to conver the space's minimal expenses
  • Anything raised beyond expenses, be it through a "soda fund", the sale of recycled equipment, etc (and not restricted to a cause) should go towards group-wide goals approved at a meeting

Budget Proposals

HiDeUS (High Density Unit of Shelving) - $500

I authorized a budget of $400 for the initial construction. I propose a budget of $500.00 for finishing off the shelf, however, we need to raise May Dues to pay for May Rent first.
