Logistics and Finance committee meeting April 23, 2012
Present, Tosh, Sema, Bob, Maureen, Eric D. (by Skype), Denise
Sema: receipts for gas for Free Market transport. Total: $161.87. Consensus to table pending clarification that Free Market is an OV project. Recommended banner and other things be created to make OV connection clear.
Tosh: $252 for May Day posters. Linxprint did 500 large colour. They did Brookfield action posters gratis. Suggested that in future we do fewer in colour and most in Black and White for outside postering. Budget of $250 for May Day was previously approved. Consensus to reimburse.
Denise; $471.59 for Dome supplies. Receipts lost, possibly when cash box broken into but provided credit card statement with charges from Home Depot. Consensus to approve.
Other Business: Proposed to move committee meetings to bi-weekly since activity is lower now that all outstanding amounts from the VAG occupation have been reimbursed. Agreed to postpone next meeting due to May Day and recommend Spokes Council do the same. Next meeting will be May 8. Will reconsider weekly or bi-weekly schedule at the next meeting.
Proposal from Tosh to OK checking into getting two high quality computers and various peripherals, especially for purpose of centralizing photo/video editing and data storage to manage Occupy Vancouver’s on-line presence. Will look for donations but $500 budget approved in case some expenditure is necessary. Agreed to recommend to Spokes Council.
Meeting adjourned 7 pm.
