  • November financials are done and posted on the Open Finance site. We are at another new high, 147 members, and all is good.
  • As membership has increased during 2021, our "Monthly Net" has increased allowing us to afford the recent member votes.
  • If membership levels hold we can anticipate to budget $2k to $2.3k per month ($24k to $27.6k for the year) for "Discretionary Purposes"
  • The Finance Committee and Leadership is encouraged to lead membership to create a "Strategic Plan" for such spending into the coming year.

Updating Bylaws

  • A committee is needed
  • The annual meeting seems a long way off but we should get this started before too many more months.

Committee Status Updates


  • JimD is deep into building the QuickBooksPlusOnline structure to match for the legacy 2020 and 2021 financials. It is a complicated long slog with some progress and setbacks.
  • It remains a committed goal and is a mostly solo task so far that is not (yet) ready to publish.


  • Adding membership to Outreach Committee authority
    • Dave Velzey can't do it all. (PLEASE stop this "only X person does Y" stuff... it's super demeaning and derogatory to all the people who want and try to help.)
    • John Clark has started doing a little of it.


  • Met on December 11th (out of cycle due to holidays). Next meeting is back at regularly scheduled date of January 29th.
  • Renewed Microsoft donation of Azure credit.
  • Will be creating an outreach group on G Suite to handle contact to all members of outreach committee. Pending action at this meeting (see above) and meeting of the outreach committee on 12/15, the alias will move to that group.


  • Not strictly Operations but paperwork is not getting dealt with.
    • Traditionally whose responsibility is it?
    • And who can actually do it?
  • MRO budget will need to be renewed in January


  • Henceforth Itty Bitty Kitchen Committee or IBKC.
  • Will be resuming action in Jan 2021 2022 because holidays.


Other issues

  • Strategic planning
  • Current policy regarding selling assets to leadership members
    • What is it?
    • Does everyone in leadership understand it?
    • Does it make sense?
