-CQ: Would the hours expire at a certain time, and would that apply to new members preparing their apts? A: No expiration. Anything that labor decides to give labor credit for could be credited to the bank of 12 hours. Could you accrue more bankable hours at another time if you did use them? A: Yes. POI: None. Concerns: Why 12 hours -- that may not fit for a whole month, how about 16 in a month. Corey is okay with anything between 8 and 12. Friendly amendment: make it 16 hours. Corey accepts. No other concerns. **Passes by consensus as: Cap surplus labor hours a member can bank to 16.** +CQ: Would the hours expire at a certain time, and would that apply to new members preparing their apts?

-CQ: No-shows would count toward this tally when they would be obligated to pay labor fines. What happens if you pay off your labor fines every month? A: Could accept that if proposed. CQ: When would this go into effect? A: The review would not take place any sooner than 6 weeks after the end of the month in which the no-shows accumulated. CQ: Why this proposal? A: People who consistently do not do their labor should not be in a co-op as it puts an unfair burden on others who may burn out. CQ: This is not an automatic eviction, just a member review. Concerns: Increasing "​automation"​ of the membership review process lessens the responsibilities of members to call each other out. A: This is good, because it lessens the likelihood of problems being ignored because members don't want to be considered the "bad guy." Concern: Membership reviews shouldn'​t occur easily. A: This is already a fairly high bar. And if no one wants to talk about it this could be a very brief process. Friendly amendment: The Steward will post the member review as per usual member review policy. FA accepted. Further FA: make it "​Steward or another coordinator will post the amendment."​ It is still possible to have a discussion with a member and see behavior change before we ever get to this far in the process. CQ: Who would initiate the process? A: The bookkeeper would initiate the process because the missed labor hours are reported to her for fines and are tracked by her.  Friendly amendment: "​Payment of debt does not wipe out the count of no-shows but labor does." Accepted. Friendly amendment: "​Increase the numbers of hours that have to be missed to 8 in a month, 12 in two months, or 15 in three months."​ Accepted. Friendly amendment: "​No-shows will not begin counting towards automatic membership reviews until **April 15."​**Accepted. Members accept these as friendly amendments. No blocks.

 +Ryan -- We could change our trash pick-up from four times a week to three times a week and instead make that a recycle pick-up insteadHe has already dropped the Saturday pick-up as an experiment (saving us $80 a month). We will pay that amount for recycle instead. This would free up 8 hours of labor a month. This does not require co-op approvalbut there was general glee and excitement among those present, especially the member currently responsible for taking our recycling to Ecology Action. We will have to decide where to put it, probably in a current parking space.

 +Donny -- Corey and Andy and he are still working on opening up the office to the Commons. A locking filing cabinet will cost about $210. Digital storage would be nice but we need to keep original leases for 3 years. We have a locked electrical receptacle to protect our security system and Internet.

 +Richard -- Maybe he will ask for a grace period on people paying fines because a lot of people owe a lot of money. Others seem to feel they should be billed and then ask for help if they want to.

 +Hannah -- Reminder of coordinators meeting at 8 pm Tuesday, March 3, followed by CHEA board meeting at 8:45 pm
