Corvidae Board Minutes – January

Present: Meg,
Dorothy, Margaret, Sidonie

Treasurer's Report

Posted and attached.
The PDA slightly revised the rent increase so it's not as high as we were
anticipating. Current rent is $434.50/mo., up from $375.31/mo. last year.

Membership

As of today, Dorothy
reports we have 25 members. Last year we had 33, max is 35.

We discussed placing
an ad in the Leader saying that we're soliciting new members; Sidonie will
place an ad in the Leader to run for two weeks. Meg offered to give tours to
interested people. Marion is also looking into other places to advertise for
new members.

Two add'l people
contacted Meg interested in joining.

Question came up
about whether Seattle residents or other far-away members are granted a
discount. Meg will ask Kate.

Margaret agreed to
give tours to the members if more people join.

 

Workshops

Marion
says her 
workshop will happen when about six people express interest to her; she
has some interesting ideas of more things to do with string. 

 

Partners/Centrum

Dorothy signed the
lease renewal with Centrum.

Partners meeting is
the 1st Tuesday of the month, 3-5pm. Margaret will attend on behalf of the
board.

The Fort is
prioritizing lifelong learning and community outreach, so we may need to
demonstrate how we are a part of that. We could consider something like a
partnership with the School of the Arts or other options in the future.

We should let
Centrum know whenever we have a workshop planned (email Martha Worthley and cc:
Rob Berman).

Reminder to sign in every time you come to the studio
because the Fort does occasionally question how much we're using the building. The more we can utilize this space (and demonstrate that we're utilizing
it), the better.

 

Miscellaneous

Sandra updated the
Board membership list with the new 2017 board members.

Attached to these
