Mitch,

I think there must have been some miscommunication here.  The notes say
"There's no more checks, and we don't know the bank website password, and
nobody knows where the bank ATM card is."

Naomi has our current checks, all of the login details for our bank
accounts, and we passed all the info that is needed for the taxes to be
finished to our current accountant several weeks ago.  It's not that we
don't know who has the ATM cards -- we don't have any bank cards because
the last batch expired. We could re-order some more, but there's not much
point them going to me or other people on the account while whoever is the
next treasurer is in flux.

You should probably talk to Naomi when she gets back from her vacation
about the rest of the details. We spent several hours working out the best
transition procedure, and the info that the new treasurer would need, and
that would be substantially different were we to bring in an external
bookkeeper who was familiar with accounting software but not Noisebridge.
