Russ The stairs are expected early next week. I'll set up a time with Kyle for the work.

Madeline I'm wrapping stuff up on the CHEA Board - my last couple of items will be releasing last meeting's minutes, filling out and mailing our application to join the Texas Association of Community Development Corporations, training the new Secretary, and getting Board members' email accounts set up before I relinquish control of the gmail account. It's been great serving y'all.

Bookkeeper (Expense): Anne and I are set to start training on Friday night, and I'll spend some time on my vacation catching up on the backlog. Not much else to report bc I have no idea what I'm doing yet.

Solar project (not sure this really goes here, but not sure where else it goes either): I'm not technically getting credit for this yet but why wait. I did all the preliminary information-gathering from Donny and others to figure out what's been done already, as well as some research to familiarize myself with solar tech/terminology. Total time about two and half hours. Got ahold of Mike Yore, who has left Speir Innovations and is now at GoBig Solar, and had a 30-minute phone call with him about where we're at. Signed up for an EnergySage Account so that I can get some competing quotes as well, had a 20-minute call with one of their reps last Wednesday to give them some more information and get us on the marketplace. Spent an hour or so making a spreadsheet & google drive folder that centralized everything I learned from the slack group. Had a 30-minute call with Niko Druzhini from Freedom Solar, familiarizing him with our organization. Have a call scheduled with Craig Miller of Alba Energy to do the same thing. Once I have all three company reps at the same place, I'll start scheduling further conversations to discuss our options. I'm looking hardest at lease/PPA options per Donny's directions. Ideally will have a presentation on our competing offers by the end of July.
