I realize there is some confusion about the meeting date. At the last meeting we proposed tonight at 7, but someone indicated that it would conflict with the Marketing meeting, so we made it 6:00. The minutes reflect this. However, the Marketing meeting is next Sunday and some believed that was the meeting date.
Membership Fees discussion requested by the Board
See https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gg3HpFbb0R6v7ttJQoSOSSeyMSfCKZn3/view?usp=sharing for a spreadsheet that can be used for the discussion. The Board has indicated that they think the proposed change in membership levels is unfair to Full Members and is suggesting that a change in Fees is warranted. Additionally, the Fees have never changed and we are losing ground to inflation. Fee changes were decoupled from level changes and the target is to have a recommendation by October for implementation in January.
Jessee thinks Membership Fees should stay at 50/100
UV Printer and Laser Printer power users met and proposed that we keep the tool usage rates the same between both membership levels. ("nobody should be penalized for not having a spouse"). They are proposing raising the rates to $6.00.
Should add tool usage rates to Standing Rules - should be board approved.
Add ability to have recurring donations... (Brad Hess)
Scott was thinking 59/99
Grants, corporate sponsorships, donations from community-minded organizations...
Bryan thinks tax writeoff is a value, is OK with 59/99 rates
Wyatt likes the proposed tool usage rates, is there room for other options such as early notification of events for household members over individual members as incentive.
