BACE general meeting – Wed March 13, 2013 @ Noisebridge
Chun Key (sp?) – Bay bucks, TransitionSF
1. Email, using google apps?
– Seth: we need a tax id that matches the organization’s name, problem with working with Google.
– Stan: we could get a tax id with our name, OK to have multiple id’s under one organization for tax purposes.
– Seth will wait 2 weeks, hopefully it’ll work out with Google or we’ll create a gmail account.
2. Accounting / Bank account
– we need to keep good records, for expenses, etc.
– set up a public google spreadsheet?
3. Legal Questions
– no additional legal protection from… ??
– fine to call ourselves the “board”
– what are officers legally liable for?
– none liable except for own direct action
– ISEC is liable, and they have insurance
– we could add indemnity clause to member agreement for extra protection
– tax ID? our tax ID is ISEC’s tax ID
4. BACE website
– identify biggest issues
– Amber & Rick will work on content
– Amber will post requests on the timebank for UI/design, wordpress, and ruby/rails help.
– Carl, Rick, Amber will work on list of deliverables so we can better estimate a timeline for website. Will work on this next tech meeting (likely Wed next week)
– Seth managing blog for now, but not writing content.
– Amber suggests we send out a newsletter soon.
– plan to get a newsletter finished by Fri 3/29 to be sent out by Tues 4/2.
6. Board responsibilities
– see Rick’s post to mailing list “Tonight’s Agenda” dated 3/13/2013
