Our first board meeting

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, the newly elected board of directors got together to bring us one step closer to the formation of our climbing co-op. All 7 members of the board were present, and we recorded the meeting for future reference.

Our first order of business was to officially vote in Matt Hainley as Membership Officer as he was unable to attend the campfire meeting the Saturday before, but he had phoned in his request for the position. Congratulations Matt!

Lynn had some T-Shirts made up that say "Climbing + Sharing = Co-Op", and they would be ready before "The Core" movie preview on Thursday at the Riverview Theatre. Thanks Lynn! The plan is to have everyone on the board wearing the T-Shirts so that when Glen makes an announcement about the Co-Op he can let people know to ask one of the people wearing a "Climbing + Sharing = Co-op" t-shirt about the co-op.

We decided to meet bi-weekly until the gym is up and running. We will start with every other Tuesday at 7:30 PM until further notice.

We made some adjustments to the duties of the various membership roles to more evenly distribute the tasks. Details of these duties can be provided if you are interested. Just send us an email.

Insurance costs were discussed, but we still have quite a bit of phoning around to find an accurate estimate.

Our timeline for having the co-op up and running is January 1st, 2011.

Kris wanted to remind people that if they have any questions or need help with wall issues, just let him know.

We elected Liz Horn as our official Fund Raising Director, and it was decided that we would like Micah to be present at the meetings if he would be so inclined as he has been very helpful thus far.

Some possible start-up fund raising ideas were passed around, but nothing specific was decided upon yet.

The next meeting is slated for June 1st, 2010 at 7:30 PM!
