New business

Casino call-out

Volunteer sign-up is going fine.

Use of BW space for functions

  • this is a staff-type decision
  • but maybe we should have a policy?
  • Adam: last party was super-awesome but super-loud and doors open - should have policy for what's acceptable for noise levels etc.
  • Draft policy - what should be in it? EBC rep present? Paid staff time? Deposit? Hours (end-by time)? Alcohol liabilities/insurance? (might exclude a lot of things we have been doing - but can get event insurance maybe? pricy) David Feldman might know about this. For future development; Steph will try to write up a draft.
  • Lee: if this could be a potential source of revenue, do we want to advertise our space?

LRT bike racks/art

  • Duncan has talked to 7(!) community leagues who are interested and will write letters of support.
  • Has mtng scheduled with mayor's chief of staff and other VIPs: 24th. Will say that the project has much community support, etc.; let's make it happen!
  • Regarding the LRT it seems that the existing footbridge near the Muttart will be removed.

Board development workshop progress review

In Camera

Duncan: I move we go in camera; Adam seconded; carried.

End of Meeting

  • Start thinking about AGM and its organisation
    • 30 September 13.00-16.00
    • Adam: can we try not to close BW? Published hours --> disappointing/inconveniencing patrons. Maybe have it in the evening? Or send out email for volunteers interested in keeping BW open at the time? It will be Women & Trans Day at both shops...
    • There will be some vacancies due to board members leaving. Reminder: all directors are responsible for recruiting new directors. action item (for all): Recruit!

Steph: I move to end; Paul seconded; carried.
