 +====== January 10, 2013 ======
  
 +CHEA Expansion Subcommittee Meeting
 +
 +Members present: ​ Hannah, Donny, McAllen, Sam, Jesse, Molly, Mike, Bridget, Daniel, Leslie, Travis.
 +
 +===== Agenda item #1, interfacing with Gault Residents: =====
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ My thought is we should write them a letter. ​ I wanted to talk about what exactly we wanted to contain in this letter.
 +
 +> McAllen: ​ I would like to make sure they want to live there, not just tolerate it.
 +
 +> Daniel: ​ We should say what exactly is a co-op, what will change, will they be able to change.
 +Some of the food and services, utilities etc. may be additional costs. What are the benefits?
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ We should write a letter, seems like we're all on the same page with that.  I'd also like to canvass door-to-door.
 +
 +> Daniel: ​ About half the tenants are on Section 8 vouchers. ​ Their caseworkers have to be in the loop with potential membership reviews, evictions, etc.  Section 8 tenants usually have yearlong leases.
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ Rants some about social justice.
 +
 +> Daniel: ​ There'​s also a context of offering moving money.\\ ​
 +
 +**Action item:  write a letter to Gault residents.**
 +
 +*Donny and Gatlin volunteer to take on this agenda item.*
 +
 +===== General membership acceptance processes: ​  =====
 +
 +> Donny: ​ It's already a requirement that prospective residents come to two meetings.
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ I would like us to continue doing Open Membership processes like Sasona. ​ I would like us to steer people by asking them more questions "How do you see yourself participating? ​ What management committees do you see yourself serving on?"
 +
 +> Bridget: ​ I think that people would come down here to Sasona.
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ If Leslie and Travis are going to vote we need to vote to allow them to be subcommittee members.
 +
 +==== Motion to accept Leslie and Travis ====
 +
 +Hannah motions that we accept Leslie and Travis as subcommittee members:
 +
 +**7 for / 0 against / 0 abstentions**
 +
 +==== Motion to adopt Sasona open membership process ====
 +
 +Should we adopt the Sasona Open Membership processes?
 +
 +**9 for / 0 against / 0 abstentions**
 +
 +===== Common space: =====
 +
 +Should we maintain the 4-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and former office as our projected common space?​\\ ​
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ We may be able to get by without the 2-bedroom unit.
 +
 +> Donny: ​ This building has a lack of common space so the more the better. *(Others agree for the most part)*
 +
 +> McAllen: ​ I'm interested in using people'​s living rooms at Gault Street as additional common spaces, on a voluntary basis.
 +
 +> Hannah: ​ Do we want to upgrade our kitchen equipment?​\\ ​
 +
 +> Mike:  Not sure.\\ ​
 +
 +Adjourned.
