- Net earnings to end of may 2013 are +$4775. At the end of June, the financial statements will likely show a small loss, but less than the budget estimated.
At end of june we estimate that we will show a loss of -$6000, the budget estimated we would be at a loss of -$12000 so we are doing better than the budget predictions.
brian presented a plan to change the bylaws, to make director's terms 2 years.
we discussed advantages (primarily long term vision - having directors stay around longer means they can plan and implement long term plans, and be more effective for longer, because the learning curve is paid once.
and disadvantages (there might be legal problems with trying to implement). potentially less candidates, getting a bad candidate might mean 2 years of bad person.
legal concerns may need to be addressed, we could ask Luke Closs, vanlug has a lawyer we might be able talk to , brian will email justin about this
proposal to recommend this to the next gm was passed, with a note saying we will need to consult a lawyer.
board suggests a sunday agm, in september 8 or 15 as possible candidates in order to allow time to have a membership drive.
