(Tori) Address the 6-month associateship asked of me for a move-in. Her understanding is that she's being kept out because of the requirement for a regular income; she has had trouble finding a place to live and get a job because of her legal history. Marilyn comments that she can come back and ask for a place to live when she has a reliable source of income. Tori reports that she has been staying in the Commons with her boyfriend Joshua. Hannah asks her not to make that a routine except when it is freezing. Richard and Hannah suggest that she look for someone to co-sign her lease. Hannah also asks about her previous history of not completing labor and leaving abruptly without any warning. Tori reports that she did not have a contract at that time and apologizes for not communicating better. Ryan brings up a hostile interaction with another member that he witnessed recently. She apologizes and says she is impulsive, is trying to address it, and in the future would ask for mediation. Hannah suggests that in the future any actions like this (making her membership conditional) be done at a Sunday meeting when complete minutes are taken.
