 +
 +
 +Concerns:​\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Nolan: We don't have anything written down about consensus. To that end, I'm trying to document.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Seemed like it was a lot of voting: do we feel good about moving forward with the proposal. I like the process of being able to discuss and make updates, but seems like it's just voting without the name.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Sometimes we have to have something decided on with or without consensus. It doesn'​t seem that the process theoretically allows for that.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Carey: What sorts of things that we need to decide?​\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Richard: Two weeks ago, we had two alternate proposals. Neither were passed, so they were tabled.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Don't like membership reviews being handled by consensus. If half of the community feels that someone shouldn'​t be a good fit, we shouldn'​t wait until 90% feel that the person isn't a good fit.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Georgette: Sometimes you need to just tear off the bandaid and get it over with.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Mike: At HoC, there was a proposal to ban someone from the house (not a member) that passed after a long discussion, with one person standing aside. One person commented that consensus was turned on its head since a person shouldn'​t be allowed at the house if there isn't consensus that it's okay, but you need consensus to pass a proposal to ban someone.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Richard: I like some aspects of it: dividing an agenda item into a fact-finding section, instead of that being mixed up. I wouldn'​t mind adopting portions that everybody finds useful.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Carey makes a motion to adopt consensus with the house to amend to fit our needs, exempting membership review.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Passes 9-2.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Corey: Propose that, if someone blocks and that block is seconded, then the proposal is tabled and can be brought back for modification at a further meeting.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Nolan: Are we doing away with the germaneness test? If you have two people who want to disrupt the process, they'​ve killed the proposal. Maybe it has to be a concern brought up during the concern section.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Corey accepts the friendly amendment that a block has to be germane.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Who decides whether a block is germane?​\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Nolan: I guess it would be the house by consensus.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Proposal: if someone blocks and that block is seconded and considered germane, then the proposal is tabled and can be brought back for modification at a further meeting.\\ ​
 +\\ 
 +Proposal passes.

 +Mike: Neighborhood association meeting tomorrow night.\\ ​

 +Beth: I've got a new labor chart. it's got the new officers. There are changes to it. I'm probably going to put up a new one next week because associates aren't on it. If you need to adjust your labor, come talk to me.
