  • Lawyer vote
    • tl;dr -- We're passionate about, and awesome at making things, not writing legal documents and interpreting statutes. We've outgrown our current by-laws, but to ensure that we have a thorough, fair, and legal re-write, we need to retain a non-profit lawyer.
    • Vote is to set aside $2000 to be spent on legal expenses, fees, etc to make Hive13's by-laws, financials, and legal matters more awesome.
      • 11 Yes votes online as of 7/11/17 17:22
