We have made progress on several issues, and should be starting with Article 7 during the next meeting.
I have cleaned up the by-laws appearance with more sub-headings to make it more readable.
I have also added a voting section to include proxy voting.
We decided to create job descriptions for each of the elected officials to keep the by-laws to a minimal length.
We still have questions out to the district administrators regarding the need for a sponsor, and how to coordinate all of the principals on the various campus. District policy gives them much more power over what we can and cannot do on their campus than previously thought. With the possibility of 3+ principals, we need to figure out how to keep them in the loop in an efficient manner.
Lastly, we will need to start figuring out a way to pay for the non-profit application. We would like to get this in to the IRS prior to Dec. 31, 2009, since there will be a price hike starting next year by $100. Currently, the fee is $300 if we expect to make less than $10K per year for the first 4 years, or pay $750 if we expect to make more than $10K per year for the first 4 years.
The next meeting will take place on October 17th at 6PM. Please contact me for more details.
