Stewards present = Quorum)
- Faery Thank you to Betsy for the lovely quilts over the years
update: Spirit, Lammas
- Teddy bought a new wagon and it's currently being stored in
H's garage. Plln is planning on taking the part that needs
to be reinforced to a welder before they put the wagon together.
The old wagon needs a new bolt for the steering but can still be used.
- Faery Thank You to Betsy
It was suggested that we commission our knitters/crocheters/weavers
to make a blanket or perhaps a tapestry/wall hanging for Betsy to
thank her for her years of donating a quilt for our fundraising.
Teddy thought that creating something on the land Memorial Weekend
might be a wonderful idea. We would include any written personal
thank you's also.
There is really no new news on the Spirit Gathering. The
dates are June 16-20 with an optional carryover to June 21. The
Lammas Call Girls should get together soon to discuss ideas. Two
Bears sent in the notice to RFD for the summer edition. It was
noted that we should put notice in the Gathering call that we plan
to have a consensus vote about any changes to the bylaws.
This topic was tabled last time because the person(s) involved
weren't present. Further conversation
on Duty of Care to happen Memorial Day weekend. The question was
brought up about what is already in the bylaws that govern people's
responsibilities? They will be check for the exact wording.
One change to the bylaws that has been brought up numerous times
recently. It is to amend the requirement regarding notification of
meetings being "postmarked" 30 days prior to a Circle meeting. As
the bylaws do not mention e-mail delivery, the change would allow e-
mails to take the place of snail mail notifications.
The Secretary of State notification of renewal had come to Plln and
he will update the form and mail it in. Plln has volunteered to be
listed as "president" with the State with is our registration for
status as a non-profit organization. This president thing is more
about facilitation versus having power over everyone.
It was suggested that a dedicated bylaws meeting be scheduled to
discuss any changes that need or should be made to clarify what the
structure of our organization is and answer any unanswered
questions. There was also a mention about some of the official
positions (Keeper of the Royal Dish, Keeper of the Royal Beads,
Keeper of the Big Nothing) be co-shared between more than one
person. We want to make sure that if co-sharing is used, that we
don't lose focus with many people doing one job. A request for input
to any changes to the bylaws will be posted to the larger Fae list.
- Database Status
There is nothing new to report on the database status at this time.
This was an action to take a look into changing the database from an
Excel spreadsheet to a database that can be updated online. One of
the issues is confidentiality and security.
