New Staff Hire

Robert would like to hire a production assistant for 2 days/week to test monitors, do evaluation, and help with orientation. Cost would be $1000/month.
Proposal: hire Taya on a trial period for 3 months. We will teach her to identify rare CPUs and parts to help expand our inventory. If she is successful, it can become a permanent hire.
Action: Proposal passed by consensus.

Board Recruitment

Proposal: Appoint Brian Dick as a Director-At Large
Action: Proposal passed by consensus.

Volunteer Recruitment

Due to high demand, our volunteer schedule is getting filled up three months in advance. We will still be accepting high skill volunteers, but other than that, the staff feel we cannot accept new volunteers at the moment.

Strategic Planning

Short term goals for the next two months:
Create a HR model for Free Geek, preferably with the help of an expert.
Finish and launch our new website.
Create a business model for the next year.

Policy Changes

Robert suggests that we need to rewrite two policies and bring them before the membership: our policy on drugs and alcohol, and our policy on business partnerships. He will begin rewriting them.
