1. Mitch moved that Jeffrey Malone be appointed treasurer.  All were in favor.
+
 
+
2. We discussed the member tracking problem.  The treasurer and secretary cooperate to maintain a member list, and the list can get out of date.  No action was taken, but the treasurer and secretary agreed to continue to cooperate.
+
 
+
3. We discussed if Noisebridge has or needs a member removal process (it does). No action was taken.
+
 
+
4. Andy moved that Seth Schoen be appointed secretary, subject to two conditions:
+
* that Seth agree to be secretary
+
* that the membership formally consense on Seth as secretary
+
The motion was carried with no opposition.
+
 
+
5. We discussed Shannon Lee as new board member, replacing Noah Balmer. Rachel is continuing the process of achieving unanimous consent from the membership; until that happens, Shannon is not formally appointed.
+
 
+
6. We recognized Noah Balmer's resignation as board member (this being our first board meeting since his resignation in the spring).
+
 
+
7. We discussed overall governance proposals, including
+
* making the board much larger (most or all members)
+
* forming an "advisory board" of interested members to provide a forum for governance issues to offload them from the Tuesday meetings
+
* modifying the consensus process (but how?)
+
* establishing a standing committee to provide a place to refer governance business to from the Tuesday meetings
+
None of these require board action -- a membership consensus would be necessary in any case, and is entirely sufficient (except for changing the size of the Board of Directors, which could go up to 11 with a board resolution or higher with a change to the bylaws.)  The board took no action.
+
 
+
8. Voting method for the board election.  We need to elect a new board; we should have a non-sucky method.  Andy volunteered to research and write up a proposal, which will be sent out by 2009-10-18 and will be up for discussion at the Tuesday meeting 2009-10-20.
+
 
+
9. All business complete, we adjourned at 7:29 so that Andy could make it to the Gogol Bordello show.  The show was great.
