February 2012 Board Meeting Minutes

FSP Board Meeting

Saturday, Feb 25, 2012

Liberty Forum

Attending: Seamas, Varrin, Brandon, Steve, Rich, Jody, Carla

8:30am

Agenda

  1. New PF logo. None of us loves it, but it’s already on things. Wish they would have asked for more feedback, but that’s life. Organizers like to put their mark on things.

  2. Thanks to Lawless. Buy them something, like a game as a token for the family time that LF took away. Varrin will ask Edi if she will do that.

  3. 501c3 status. We can finish it in 60 days. We filed two applications under the old fsp. 501c3 and 4, neither were accepted. The 3 wasn’t accepted because we didn’t actively pursue it., weren’t persistent What’s left: the application, the budget. Seamas will shepherd it. Brandon will send some docs to Seamas. Some creative writing needs to be done to frame what we want to do. We should file a non-profit return, 990.

  4. 2012 Budget. Seamas had handouts! With Carla’s additions, the budget gets high. Instead of looking at each item and cutting, Seamas suggested prioritizing what needs to be done.
