But don't be a dick. But I mean, you know, it's... if you're really sure it's necessary - If someone's setting something on fire - Depends on what? - Don't be a dick.
Funds in bank: ~$6000
There is no active treasurer. We don't really know who's a paid-up member, whether members are being reminded, etc. Someone should step up and do this.
- Clean up binder pages, remove pages of any approved members into the records binder.
- Read off any names from the binder for the past month. (edit this step to include current checkmark system)
- Anyone up for join this week should introduce themselves then leave while the present group comes to a Consensus about their membership.
