Director Reports

President's Report

Was rent paid this month? What is the status of Paypal access?

Treasurer's Report

Treasurer's report was relayed by Matt as Julia is ill at home. We have access to our Dwolla account and rent is getting paid. Getting access to our PayPal account given our lack of account credentials requires control of the checking account first. Don inquired about getting that account transferred and we should have everything we need to take control of the account once Julia feels well enough to stop by the bank, which will hopefully be soon.

Secretary's Report

As soon as we're done sorting out the financial account access, we need to look into our insurance policies, see if they're current and meet the requirements in our lease, and get new policies if needed. The domain registration for is expiring next week. We need to renew it, since we spent time and energy getting it back last year. Our basement storage policy takes effect today. Nobody but Julia and myself have requested space and the board hasn't fully voted on those requests. We should reactivate the SpaceBlimp project.
